Adding a new gradebook item

To add a new gradebook item:

  3. On the Add Gradebook Item(s) screen, fill in the following information:
    • Title: A title is required for all gradebook items.
    • Point value: For points gradebooks, enter a total point value for the Gradebook item. This must be greater than zero. Decimal values are permitted to two decimal places.
    • Whether the item is extra credit.
    • Due Date: You can optionally designate a due date for a gradebook item. You can manually enter the due date (e.g., 09/28/07), or click the calendar icon to select a date from a pop-up calendar.
    • Category: If you have created a category, you can optionally assign an item to a category using the drop-down list.
    • To allow students to view the grade for this item, check "Release this item to Students?". You can change this option later. (If this box is checked when you enter grades, students will see their grades as soon as you click Save Changes.) To exclude this item from the course grade calculation, uncheck "Include this item in course grade calculations". You can change this option later. Note: you cannot have something included in the course grade without releasing it to students.
