Q. How can I, as faculty, see the maximum points available for a given grade item and for the course as a whole? I see what I’ve assigned to students, and their totals, but not the original “points possible.”
A. You can see points possible for any item for which points are assigned in the Grade Center by clicking on the double arrow beside the column heading and selecting Quick Column Information. You can also see this information by clicking in any cell in a column and looking at the Grade Information Bar, located over the column headers in the spreadsheet: this row shows grade type, points possible, how the grade is displayed (score, percentage, etc.) and whether the grade is visible to students.
You can see points possible for the entire course by reviewing Quick Column Information for the Total column.
