How do I set the weighting for Attendance in grades?

I thought the grades would be calculated just from the weighted assignments, and that Attendance wouldn't be counted towards the grades unless I specifically said so.  In fact, I told my students that attendance wasn't counted towards their grades.


However, one of my students pointed out to me that when I updated attendance, it did affect his grade - I think disproportionately.


When I looked into it, I saw that Attendance is automatically added as an assignment column - but nowhere does it say what the weighting of Attendance is, much less how to change it.  I'd rather Attendance not count, or only minimally.


How do I set the grade weighting for Attendance?


Any clues or ideas would be appreciated as I'm closing out the semester.
