Create a Category

    Overview

    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:

    1. Access the Grade Center
    2. Expand the Manage menu (hover over Manage btn_manage.gif)
    3. Select Categories from the Manage menu

    5. Enter a Name for the Category.
    6. Enter a Description. The Description field can help differentiate Categories, and explain a Category’s purpose

    7. Click Submit Submit Button

    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.

    Tip

    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.
