Documentation:Connect/Delete a column from the Grade Center (How To)

From UBC Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

All gradable items automatically have a column added for them in the Grade Center. For this reason, you may end up not needing a test or assignment, or create a duplicate, and will need to delete the gradable items from the course, before the column will be deleted in the grade center.

It is important to note: If you delete a column from the grade center with student work attached to it, such as tests or assignment submissions, the student work will be deleted along with the column. This action is final and you will not be able to re-access the student work in that column.

This document will show you how to:

  • Access the Grade Center
  • Delete auto-created columns in the Grade Center
