Can we please allow for external tools and submissions to be ungraded??? Why do they have to be graded? I'd like to be able to provide my students with a copy of notes that they get to modify for themselves via an assignment that I expect them to complete during class time, but I am not planning to grade that task. Not ALL assignments need to be graded or checked for completion- sometimes, it's just on the students that this get done.
External Tool: Google Drive Cloud Assignment
So students can get notes like this: Without having a grade attached or having it show up in the gradebook.
External Tool: Nearpod ---> can't even use Nearpod External tool if you don't grade it with at least with 0 points. WHY!? This is so confusing for students when they look at their grades in the gradebook- there is simply no need for the additional panic and alarm.
