You can switch your students' total grades from a percentage to a point value in the Gradebook. By default, total grades are shown as a percentage with two decimal places.

Notes:

  • This feature is available only if you use unweighted assignment groups in your course. When assignment groups are weighted, points cannot be displayed for the total grade.
  • Viewing the Total Column in the Gradebook may be restricted when multiple grading periods are enabled. This feature also limits viewing the total grade in the student Grades page.
  • When Multiple Grading Periods are enabled in a course and grading periods are weighted, points cannot be displayed for the total grade.
