FAQ Answer


Grade item shows 0%

Why does a grade item show points correctly, yet the percentage says 0%?


The problem occurs when you have a grade item with a weight of "0" in a weighted grade book. If the grade book is then changed to a points system, the grade item that had a weight of "0" will now show "0%" for all grades when set to display percentages. The workaround is to change the gradebook back to a weighted system and give the grade item in question a non-zero weight. The grade book can then be changed back to a points system. According to D2L, this issue will definitely be resolved by development in a future version of the D2L platform.
