  2. Next, tap to expand the unit title(s) to view the assignments, tests and quizzes.
  3. Finally, all exempt items will be noted with the word “Exempt” directly below the title.


  1. First, access your course and then tap the Grades option from the "Course Tools" tab option in the Navbar.
  2. Next, scroll down the Gradebook page to locate the item(s) that are exempt. These will be identified by the “-/-” in the Points column and the word “Exempt” in the Grade column.
