How can I give an assignment a weight of zero in the Gradebook?
Q: How can I give an assignment a weight of zero percent in the Gradebook?
A: You can assign any gradable Assignment, Assessment 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.
2. Navigate to your Gradebook through the Grades tab within your class, and open the Manage Assignment menu by clicking on the down-arrow button at the top of your Gradebook Entry.
3. Select Adjust Weight.
3. Enter a weight of 0 for the Assignment and hit Save to keep your changes. This Assignment will no longer factor in the Subtotal or Published Subtotal score for any students in the class.
