How do I drop the lowest grade(s) from a category in Gradebook2?
If you are using a Non-weighted (or weighted) Categories gradebook, you can arrange for a number of the lowest grades in any category to be dropped from Course grade consideration.
The gradebook must use categories (weighted or non-weighted) to use the drop lowest grade functionality.
Go to Gradebook2.
Select Gradebook2 from the Tool Menu in your site.
Case: Non-weighted (or weighted) categories gradebook:
Right-click the category name and select Edit this Category.
Enter the number of lowest category grades to be dropped, then click Save/Close.
This will drop the lowest grade(s) from the Course Grade calculation.
Notice that the lowest score in the category is displayed in red with a line drawn through it and that grade is not included in the Course Grade.
