As far as I can tell each new assignment creates a new column in the course gradebook. Is there a way to have multiple assignments contribute to one column entry in a course gradebook? So for example, there would be multiple assignments that come over the year, and as students complete them, this score increases.
Right now we have a very large number of assignments in our gradebook and we would like to add a lot more, that are not essential assignments, but contribute to a nominal "extra participation" score for the school year. Adding an assingments for each would make the gradebook too clutttered.
Is this possible? Or is there another solution that could achieve similar results?
