I want grades from Discussion posts to be factored into the category for Homework and Participation. Can I do that? How?
To change discussion posts to a different category, navigate to the full grade center and then 'edit column information' for the discussion board column. Directly above the points possible is the category area with a drop down menu that will allow you to change the category from 'discussion' to 'homework and participation.' This will have to be done for each discussion board column. A note: a category will have to be created for 'homework and participation' before the category can be changed.
I hope this helps
Navigate to the full grade center. Across the top of the grade center, click on the drop down arrow next to Manage and select Column Organization. From there, you can check the box next to one or all of the discussions and at the top and bottom is a "Change Category to . . . ". Drop down the arrow to select the new category, then submit.
Thank you Sue, that is much more efficient!
First you'll want to go to Manage > Categories and create a new Homework or Participation category, since those don't come out of the box.
