Create and Utilize a Blank Grade Column

When you create a graded entity, such as an assignment or test, a grade column is automatically created. However, there may be cases where you would like to create an independent grade column, such as if you’d like to quantify class participation or attendance. To do this, you will need to create a blank column in your Grade Center.

Create a Blank Grade Column

  1. Click on Grade Center in the Control Panel.
    "Grade Center" under "Control Panel."
  2. Click Full Grade Center.
    "Full Grade Center" within "Grade Center" drop-down.
  3. Click Create Column.
    Bb Full Grade Center - Create Column
  4. Enter in a Name for the column, (optionally) along with a display name and description.
    Bb Create Column - Name
  5. Enter in a Points Possible value.
    Bb Create Column - Points
  6. When you are finished setting preferences, click Submit at the bottom.
    Bb Submit
