I'm sorry for posting this, as I feel it must be answered elsewhere, but I could not find an answer among other posts.
I have given in-class quizzes and exams, and would like to add a column for them in my "Gradebook" on Canvas. The only way I know to do this is to add an "Assignment" in the assignments section. However, this is confusing for students; they see a blank item in the assignment section, and for quizzes there is a "Take the quiz" button that does nothing.
There is one other way to add a grade column documented here: How do I use the Gradebook?. Unfortunately it involves exporting the gradebook, modifying it, then reimporting it, which seems like an awful lot of work.
Is there really not any easy way to add a column to the gradebook without cluttering up the "Assignments" section of the course?
Thanks for your help.
