At times, you may need to clear an assessment score from the gradebook. Perhaps the grade was entered in error or the assessment was graded too early. These scores can be easily removed directly from the assessments view of your gradebook.

❗️ Based on your district settings, your standards view may show on the left. In addition, not all districts choose to use the assessments view of the gradebook. In that case, you would only see the standards view.


Removing a Score from the Assessments View

  • Step 1: Navigate to your assessments gradebook.

  • Step 2: Double-click the score you'd like to remove.

  • Step 3: Press the Delete or Backspace key on your keyboard.

  • Step 4: Press Return or Enter key on your keyboard.

Success! You've now removed the score from the gradebook!

  • Completion statuses are reverted to the previous state. If an assessment showed Graded, it will be reverted to Turned In.

  • Submission statuses are reverted to the previous state as well. If an assessment was listed as On Time, the submission status will now be null.

  • Any work that was attached to a submitted assessment is saved, which means any attachments to rubrics or recorded answers and responses.

  • The standards linked to the assessment score are deleted. The attempt is also deleted, so the student who showed five attempts at the standard will now only show four attempts.

❗️If your assessment was assigned with an availability window and utilizes auto-grading, there will need to be an open or future availability window for this assessment before you are able to clear the score for any students who did not start the assessment. If all availability windows have ended, the assessment score will clear and then immediately show a 0 because of the auto-submit feature.
