Assignments are automatically exempt

When I create new assignments in Schoology, my entire assignment is exempt. Under the assignment name, it is labeled exempt. If I edit the assignment, in the options section, count in grade is disable. I must edit each assignment and click the count in Grade enabled option.

 

Is there a way to enable the count in grade before  I publish the assignment?


Thanks

 I noticed this just happened to one of my assignments as well.  It did not do it for any of my other assignments - just one. Not sure why it is happening because it was never an issue before.

I do not use Schoology, but in PT Pro, Assignments created in a Category will automatically use the Category Defaults. It is possible that the category is set to not count in final grade by default. See attached.

Hi @mswyatt @kdonohue214 

 

I am sorry to hear that you are having an issue with assignments defaulting to exempt. 

 

When you create a new assignment, you should have an option to count it in grade enabled.

 

Do you recall if this occurred with a particular entry method? As an assignment vs an event on the calendar?

This has happened to a couple of my teachers too and we don't know how to fix it.

Where do you click the count in grade enable option. I can't find it

@sdelarocha The setting exists on the Assignment Defaults tab when creating/editing a Category, and on the Assignment tab when creating/editing an Assignment. See attached.

I have no access to Schoology, but take a look here and in the attached screenshot.

Hey,

I will exempt certain students in that manner, but this is the entire assignment mark Exempt. The Assignment "Costume Construction should be 25 pts just like the Scenery Construction assignment.

I just found that by going into PowerSchool and editing the assignment - the box for "Count in Traditional Final Grade" was not checked. Schoology still has the assignment as EXEMPT, but at least PowerSchool is including the grade in it's calculations.

This just happened to me. I set up the Assignment as always and I even compared it to the previous assignment - everything matched with the exception to showing up "exempt" under one and the points under the previous. I then went to PowerSchool and it shows to calculate it in the final grade, but is marked Exempt. I can not figure out how to change/fix this. Everything "looks" correct, but is not.
