Subject: Online Grades 3.2.4 Released

Merry Christmas!

We are pleased to announce the release of Online Grades version 3.2.4.
This release features "Grade Groups" capability, which allows for coaches
or administrators to review the overall grades for a group of students.
Thanks to "evilpluto" -
for doing much of the work to move this feature over from an old version
of Basmati. For an overview of how Grade Groups works please see

If you are wondering where Online Grades 3.2.3 went, we decided to skip
this version number due to the new Grade Groups functionality and other
new features that have been added since 3.2.2. There were no database
changes in this release, so upgrading is very straight forward. See
http://docs.onlinegrades.org/Upgrading_from_Previous_Versions for details.
If you upgraded from 3.2.1 to 3.2.2 the procedure is the same.

1580566 Added Grade Groups - See
