Q:     When creating a new event in GradeBook, what are the 'Status' Options?
A: The Status Options allow you to specify the weight of the event. The event will always be set as default to "Normal." The other options are as follows: The event could be offered as "Extra Credit," where any scores entered will only add to the student's total average. A student with nothing entered will not be harmed. The "Can be dropped" setting allows the scores from the specific event to be dropped, once the box next to the score is checked and the "Update all" button is clicked. If the event will not be taken for a grade, the "Not for grade" setting is available. The last option available is "Event Multiplier." This setting allows the new event to be counted double or more in the final computation of grades in GradeBook. After choosing "Event Multiplier" you must then enter a number in the box entitled "multiplier" (to count double, enter 2 and so on).
