You can enable an existing grading scheme for your course by editing your Course Settings. If you need to change your course grading scheme at any time, you can manage the grading schemes and find a new scheme.

If you want to disable grading schemes for your entire course, you can deselect the grading scheme checkbox in Course Settings and your course will no longer be associated with a grading scheme. If you choose to use a grading scheme at a later time, you will have to re-enable a grading scheme.

Notes:

  • In a course export, the enabled course grading scheme is copied as the default grading scheme.
  • Using an account-level grading scheme built by your institution links the scheme into your course—it does not import as a new scheme on the course level.
