Create a Category
New Categories are created using the Manage Categories page. The Manage Categories page displays the default Categories and any other Categories that have been created. Each Category displays the Grade Center columns associated with that particular Category.
To create a new Category, follow these steps:
- Access the Grade Center
- Expand the Manage menu (hover over Manage )
- Select Categories from the Manage menu
- Click Create Category
- Enter a Name for the Category.
- Enter a Description. The Description field can help differentiate Categories, and explain a Category’s purpose
- Click Submit
Columns associated with a Category are listed on the Manage Categories page. To associate a column with a Category, see Adding Grade Columns to the Grade Center.
Grade Center items that are not assigned a Category upon creation are automatically assigned to "No Category". To avoid this event, create Categories before creating Grade Center Items. Having Grade Center Items associated with Categories is helpful when creating Smart Views. For more on Smart Views, see About Smart Views.
