ICET Quickguide: Delete Grade Items or Grade Categories

Version 10.3 and Higher

Both grade items and grade categories can be removed from a grade book.  Note that removing a grade category does not remove the grade items that are part of the category.  If a category is deleted, the grade items become independent grade items in the grade book.  Grade items that are associated with another course object such as a quiz, dropbox, or discussion cannot be deleted.  In order to delete such an item, first the association with the course object must be removed. Additional information on deleting grade items or grade categories can be found at Deleting grade items or categories in the Desire2Learn Online Resource Center.
