With the deadline for submitting final grades approaching, we know that a lot of instructors are making sure that all of the I’s are dotted and T’s are crossed in their Springboard gradebooks. One issue that has come up a few times has to do with bonus grade items; namely, that bonus items are not calculating properly into the final grade.
Most often, this issue is caused by a category that containsonly bonus items. Without a non-bonus item in a category, these items will not calculate properly into the final grade. The easiest way to correct this issue is to perform the following steps –
- Select Grades.
- Select Manage Grades.
- Select the bonus grade item to edit.
- Select None from the Category dropdown menu.
- Select Save.
Once each bonus item has been removed from the category containing only bonus items, they should calculate as expected.
