Gradebook (Part II) - Set Grading Categories

Decision #2 – How about categories?  Will you use categories for your assignments? 

Back at the Manage -> Gradebook page, now choose Categories (on the right side). 

Now you are ready to add your categories so click the Add New button.  A window will pop open where you then add the title of the category and other information such as whether to use all assignments or to drop the lowest, etc.

NOTE:  In general, categories behave similarly whether you select the percentage or the points grade book.

If you choose percentage, it is an option to set the categories as a percent of the total grade.

If you choose points, the categories will figure (but not affect) what percentage of grades each category represents.
