Exempting Grades

You can exempt students from any grade item in the Grade Center to take into consideration students that transfer to a school, add a course late, drop a course, or require other accommodations. Exempted items are not added into any statistical or total grade calculations.

Existing grades that have been exempted are not deleted but are ignored in all total and statistical calculations. No secondary display value is shown for items that are exempt.

Exemptions entered for system-generated column are saved as the override grade. Exemptions entered for manually created columns are saved as the grade for the column when no override grade exists.
