How do I customize weighting and categories for a class?

From Markboard, select the section you would like to edit

From the Section, select the settings tab as shown in the screenshot below.

All sections by default start with the following categories:

  • Homework
  • Quiz
  • Test
  • Assignment
  • Formative

You'll see each of these categories in a list on the left and visualized in a pie chart on the right as seen below


You can adjust the name or weight of each category by simply clicking on it and typing. Wait a moment and you'll see the pie chart automatically update when it saves.

You can also create additional categories clicking the 'Add Category' button at the bottom.

Deleting a Category

You should see an 'x' to the right of each category weight, click this to delete that category.

Note that once a category is deleted it can not be recovered, you'll also need to specify what category assessments created in this one will be migrated to 

For example if you delete the 'Assignment' category you'll need to migrate all existing assessments in that category to one of the other categories for this subject. (i.e Homework) 


Note: Each subject must have at least one category.
