Exempting a Grade Item

Instructors can exempt a student from a single grade item. Exemptions are made when entering a grade for an individual item. When a grade item is exempt it will not count against the student as the grade item does not count towards the final calculated grade.

    • Instructor pages: Enter Grades, Grade User, Grade Category, Grade Item, Import Preview
    • Student pages: My Grades
    • User Progress: Summary and Grades tabs
  • Grade Category and Grade User pages display exemptions, but do not support adding or removing exemptions.
