Q: How can I give an assignment a weight of zero percent in the Gradebook?

A: You can assign any gradable AssignmentAssessment or other item with a Gradebook Entry a weight of zero percent by adjusting the Weight listed under the Manage Assignment menu, within your traditional Gradebook. 

Creating a weight of zero percent is a great way to track student progress without a grade consequence.  Many teachers use a zero-percent weight for pretests, practice assignments, placement scores and more!

Assigning a Weight of Zero Percent

1. Create any Assignment, Assessment, WikiProject, etc. that includes a Gradebook Entry.
