How do I create Grade Categories?

Using Categories in your gradebook allows you to create headings that help organize your Grade Items. A category consists of one or more grade items.

To create Categories and Grade Items, you must be in your gradebook. Go to the Grades tool -> Manage Grades tab.

  1. To create a category, click on the New button and select Category from the dropdown. 
  2. Complete the details of the Category and click Save.  If you don’t know what the choice to make in the details is, click on the small black circle with the question mark inside to get a description.  

3.  When you are finished selecting the settings, click Save and Close.

4.  Repeat the steps to create each category for your Grades.  Examples of Categories are Quizzes, Homework, Discussions, Presentations, Examinations, but are up to you in terms of how you organize your gradebook for the items that come under a Category.
