Learn@UW/D2L - Description Field for Grade Items and Categories

In the gradebook, each grade item and category has a field named "Description" along with an option to "Allow users to view grade item description" (for grades) or "Allow users to view description" (for categories).

The grade and category descriptions can be viewed by students when selecting the Grades tool. In the student view of a gradebook, if a grade item or category has an available description and users are allowed to view it, the description is displayed just below the grade or category item name.
