D2L - Deleting Grade Items and Categories from the Gradebook (UW-Madison)


UW-Madison is adopting Canvas as the single, centrally supported learning management system, and discontinuing support for Desire2Learn (D2L) and Moodle. Access to D2L and Moodle will permanently end June 1, 2018. For information about retaining materials from D2L or Moodle, please refer to this document.

This document explains how instructors can delete grade items and categories from the D2L gradebook.

Delete Grades

The "Delete" tool allows instructors to delete grade categories and items. If you have linked a grade book item to a quiz or a Dropbox folder, you will not be able to delete it until you have disassociated the quiz or Dropbox folder with the Grade Item (Grade items cannot be deleted if they are associated with anything). Deleting any grade item will permanently delete any grades entered into the system.

Perform the following steps to delete a grade category or item:

  1. Click "Grades"
  2. Click "Manage Grades" . 
  3. Click on the drop down menu next to "More Actions".
  4. Click "Delete" and select which grade categories or items you wish to delete.
  5. Click the blue Delete button in the lower left-hand corner.
