Zero worth assignments

Hello Canvas Community!


I have this situation:


  • Students have to turn in a draft of an essay. We don't want it to be worth any points, absolutely nothing.
  • We decided to create an assignment, so they have the option to upload the archive. We gave the assignment a zero point value since we don't want to give any points for this.
  • Under display grade, we had to choose Points, because if we choose Not Graded, the turn in options aren't available.

By putting 0, does this affect negatively the overall grading of the course? Some professors have told us it does.
