Creating a Gradebook Category

Change what users see for this category from your standard display settingsz

Grade book categories let you organize and group related grade items into sections. For example, you could have separate categories for Assignments, Quizzes, Case Studies, Participation, Discussions, etc. When grade items are grouped together in a category, you can distribute points equally across all grade items and drop the highest or lowest item in the group.

If you will be exporting/importing your gradebook, please make sure grade categories do not have the same exact name as any grade items, as this will cause an error when uploading.
