Grade Category Set Up

You need to set up the grading categories in a new or imported course. These categories will determine the gradebook columns and your views for learning analytics.

Step 1: Under the “Settings” dropdown, selecting “Grading.” Then delete all the default grade categories that automatically show up.

Step 2: Click on the green button to “Add a New Assignment Type” (grade category).

Step 3: Fill in the following fields:

  • Assignment Type Name (e.g. Exam or Content Quiz)
  • Nickname (same as full name)
  • Percent of total course grade (e.g. content quizzes are 30% and exams total 70%)
  • Number of assignments
  • Number of droppable assignments (default is 0)

Step 4: Save the grade assignments.
