Focus GPB Part I - How do I properly name my Canvas assignment groups?

As part of the Focus grade passback (GPB) setup, you need to name your Canvas assignment groups to mirror the names you have for Focus Categories. 

For example, if I have four categories in Focus, such as Homework, Tests, Participation, and Written Response, I will need to have those same titles as assignment groups in Canvas.  This guide shows how to edit the titles of assignment groups.
