Using Smart View in Compass 2g to Filter by Section

If you are administrating a large course with many sections that are all using Compass 2g to house SafeAssign assignments linked from Moodle, it may be helpful to put one or multiple sections into the same Compass site and filter them by section. This is possible using the Smart View feature in Compass.


  1. In the left hand COURSE MANAGEMENT section, click Grade Center.
  2. From the expanded menu, click Full Grade Center.
    Note: There is a "Section" column in the gradebook populated with the subject code, number and section information (e.g., CITES_100_AB) that is automatically populated for Registrar-Affiliated courses. Your students will be loaded automatically a few days before classes start, but you may request that they are loaded earlier.
  3. In the horizontal bar at the top, click Manage.
  4. Select Smart Views from the drop-down menu.
  5. In the horizontal bar at the top, click Create Smart View.
  6. Under SMART VIEW INFORMATION, type in a name like Michelle's Students.
  7. Check the "Add as Favorite" checkbox.
If an instructor only has one section, follow the instructions below:
  1. Under "SELECTION CRITERIA Type of View", select Performance View Specific users based on their performance on a single item.
  2. Under "Select Criteria User Criteria", select Grade on section (Text).
  3. Under "Condition", select Equal to.
  4. Under "Value", type the name of the section.
  5. Under "Filter Results", select All Columns.
  6. Click Submit.
If an instructor has two or more sections, follow the instructions below:
  1. Under "SELECTION CRITERIA Type of View", select Custom Build a query based on user criteria.
  2. Under "Select Criteria 1 User Criteria", select Grade on section (Text).
  3. Under "Condition", select Equal to.
  4. Under "Value", type the name of the section.
  5. Click Add User Criteria.
  6. Repeat steps 2-4 for the second and/or third section.
  7. Under "Formula Editor", type 1 or 2 if you have two sections. If you have three sections, type 1 or 2 or 3.
  8. Under "Filter Results", select All Columns.
  9. Click Submit.
Now, anytime that you click on "Grade Center", you will see the Smart View that you created in the expanded menu. When you click on it, you will only see a list of your students.
