Is there a way for the grade book to be designed so that I can give more than 100%? That is, the regular assignments add up to 100%. However, I want students to have the chance to earn an addition 5% through an optional final exam. How do I allow the grade book to do that?
Solved! Go to Solution.
My thanks to those who sent such helpful advice. As it turned out I did this and it worked: (1) I muted the optional final exam (extra credit) assignment, (2) I assigned this extra credit only to the students who indicated they would take this optional final exam), and (3) I carefully monitored the grades before unmuting the assignment and releasing the grades. It worked!
