External Grade columns are columns in the Grade Center that you assign to display your students' grade for the course. In new courses, the default Total column is also the default External Grade column and is marked as such a green check-mark beside the column header. You can assign a different column to be set as the External Grade. The default External Grade column cannot be deleted until another column is assigned.
