gradebook "headings"?

Jump to solution

I have a teacher who has a gradebook with "headings" that I can't get rid of and don't know where they came from. What is this?

Hi scunningham@caschools.us 

These are the Assignment Group headings.

All Canvas assignments must be in at least one Assignment Group, with Canvas creating a default group titled "Assignments". In the Gradebook, Assignment Groups display as a subtotal column just before the Total Column. Faculty can create more Assignment Groups, and even delete the default group if not needed.  Assignment Groups are a great tool for organizing graded content, and teachers can weight those groups and even apply certain rules to them.

You can learn more about Assignment Groups in the Assignments chapter of the Instructor Guide, and specifically at https://community.canvaslms.com/docs/DOC-10149-415241291 

I hope this helps,

Kelley
