How to use Grade Categories in Brightspace?
Do you have a lot of assignments in your Brightspace gradebook that you'd like to put together? Use a Grade Category! Do this via Grades > Manage Grades > New > Category. Under Weight, enter the weight of all the assignments combined towards the final average grade. If the assignments all have the same weight within the category, choose "Distribute weight evenly across all items" under Distribution. Click Save and Close. Add the individual assignments to the category by opening them, then choose the category from the dropdown menu. You can collapse the category in Enter Grades. More information on Grade Categories can be found here. Check out the steps in this instruction video (01:05).
