How do I make my grade book work on straight points instead of categories?
Hi GABRIEL GOMEZ
by "Categories", I suspect you mean Assignment Groups.
Whether you use a points-based or percentage-based gradebook, Assignment Groups have nothing to do with the gradebook calculations unless you have set specific conditions in your assignment groups to do this,
Assignment Groups are primarily a tool for organizing assignments, although you can weight course grades through assignment groups, or add rules to an assignment group that can impact grades.
All graded content in Canvas (assignments, quizzes and graded discussions) must be in an assignment group, and Canvas provides each course with a default one. However, there is no requirement that additional groups be made, and if you inherited a course with more groups, you can remove them. The gradebook will create a sub-total column for each assignment group, and as far as I know, you can neither hide or remove them.
