Creating Grade Book Categories and Items

Creating Categories

Grade book categories allow you to separate your different types of grades. If you are using the weighted system, then the categories are where you place the weight for the total course for that particular group of grades. If you are using Points, then Categories just allow you to separate the grades for easier viewing.

Note: If you select to distribute weight evenly across all items, then the system will adjust the percentages of the items in the category accordingly.

If you later decide to drop a grade, then you would do so, by entering how many grades you want to drop in the lower of the two boxes, "Number of lowest non-bonus items to drop for each user."
