How do I set empty cells to zero for a single grade item?
Gradebook does not include ungraded items in the course grade calculation. Empty cells could result in a higher course grade average for a student. To include a Gradebook item in the course grade calculation, you must enter a grade of zero or higher.
In the target Sakai site, select the Gradebook tool from the Tool Menu.
Find the grade item for which you want to assign zeroes.
- Select the dropdown arrow in the grade item's column header.
- Then, choose Set Score for Empty Cells from the drop-down menu.
Enter the grade you will assign for empty cells.
Use the Group/Section drop-down menu to select a specific group or section to assign this grade to (optional).
- Then, enter the grade you will assign to all empty cells.
- Select Done to assign.
Select Continue to confirm the score and section or groups you have chosen to update. Individual student scores can be overwritten later if a student turns in late work; to overwrite the score of 0, select the individual student's grade cell and enter the new grade.
