In the Grade Center, you can use categories to group related columns together and organize the data.
With categories, you can perform the following tasks:
- Filter your view of the Grade Center. For example, you can filter using the Assignment category and view only assignment columns in the Grade Center grid.
- Calculate grades. For example, you can assign a weight to a category when calculating final grades using a weighted column.
- Create a smart view. Smart views are views of the Grade Center based on a variety of student criteria. For example, you can generate a smart view that only displays columns associated with the Test category. To learn more, see Smart Views.
- Create a report. You can create a printable report that displays statistics of performance for all of the columns in a certain category. To learn more, see Grade Center Reporting.
