Description: The passage contains a few tips and tricks for the focus gradebook, the author wants to add an assignment which is worth 10 assigning points, we might see other analyses about his assignment.
I’m going to show you a few tips and tricks for the focus gradebook, this first video covers our options for points and creating assignments, I’m going to add an assignment, I make it worth 10 points, I can also enter the number of questions which will be useful later.
When I make an assignment, worth 10 points, I can first grade by entering the number of points, hitting Enter, goes down in my grade book and focus will automatically grade, I’ll create a second assignment worth 20 points by doing this.
I make the second assignment worth double, I’m also going to enter the same number of questions to help me with grading and I can either grade this by typing in the number of points now at worth out of 20 or if I’m circling the questions incorrect on the homework.
I can enter 1 through 8 questions in correct and focus will convert this automatically to a number of points, so I don’t have to do that math, the next type of assignment that I can create is extra credit.
If I do this, I leave the points blank or I type in a 0 so notice, when you create an assignment, you always want to enter the points unless you want the assignment to be extra credit, by entering 0 points or by leaving the points blank.
Finally I can create an assignment, that’s worth nothing to the student at all, but it’s really for my own record-keeping by entering a slash in the points, entering a slash, makes the assignment, look like a checkbox that I can use for record-keeping notice, by checking this or unchecking it, it does not affect the student’s grade, this ends our lesson on points in our gradebook.
