How do I make a missing assignment affect a student's overall score? If I plug in a zero, and a student then attempts the assignment, will the zero override the student's attempt?
It's okay. I figured it out on my own. In order to make the missing assignment (quiz) affect the grade, you have to plug in a zero. The student is still allowed to take the quiz, unless you block it, and the new score overrides the zero. If you have a due date set, then it marks the quiz as late,
Haha, yes, you got it Vicki
What type of assignment are you referring to? If the assignment requires manual grading you could keep the zero. If you mean an automatically graded assignment such as a multiple choice test, if you enter a score of 0 in the gradebook but the quiz is still available to students and one takes the quiz, the score you manually entered will be overwritten in the gradebook. This is why teachers usually use start and stop access dates and times in the quiz settings that coincide with their course policies.
