How to Add an Extra-Credit Column to the Grade Center in Bb Learn

One of the frequent questions we get in the TLP lab is, “How do I add extra-credit points in the gradebook?” It is possible to create a column in which manually entered extra-credit points are added to students’ total points. The process is fairly easy, but requires a few steps.

The first step is to make sure that the column that computes the students’ total points is correctly set up. The second step requires an extra-credit column to be created into which the points will be added. The final step is to create a column that will sum the total points with the extra-credit points.

Does this sound complicated? If so then proceed to our Bb Learn Knowledge Base article that will detail the steps to create the columns in the Grade Center.
