Help Center GradeBook Help Center Delete a Category

Deleting a category deletes all assignments the category contains, and any scores entered for those assignments. In addition, total score calculation is disabled, and any existing total scores are removed. After deleting a category, you will need to go back and set up weighting and calculation of total scores again.
