Create Gradebook Column from Homework module

When adding / editing a Homework assignment, you know how the option to “Grade this assignment”, which will automatically create a column in the Gradebook:

Some things to note about this function:

  • If you delete a column in the Gradebook that is linked to a Homework assignment, the “Grade this assignment” checkbox will get unchecked.
  • Unchecking the “Grade this assignment” box AFTER grades have been added is equivalent to deleting the column in the Gradebook. Any grades in that column will also be deleted. We recommend the “Gradebook History / Versioning” app, if you want to keep track of changes to the gradebook, including removal/deletion of gradebook columns.
  • Changes to the Gradebook column details in either the Homework or in the Gradebook will be reflected in the other. This means that:
    • If you change the column details when editing the Homework, the details will be reflected in the Gradebook
    • If you change the column details in the Gradebook, the associated details in the Homework will also be updated.
  • Deleting a Homework assignment will also delete the linked Gradebook column.
