D2L - Dropping a Grade Item or Category from final grades (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.

Dropping an item or category from final grade calculation differs depending on whether the gradebook is set up to calculate by weight or points.


Items and categories in the points system contain an option to "Exclude from Final Grade Calculation." Checking this box on the edit screen excludes the item/category from calculation.


Items and categories in a weighted grading system can be dropped by setting the item/category weight to 0 (zero).
