In the Brightspace Gradebook, instructors have the option to exempt students from certain assignments. When you exempt a student from an assignment, it is excluded from their final grade in the course. To exempt multiple students from the same assignment in the course, follow the steps below.
- First, from your Brightspace course, go to the Grades page.
- Next, scroll to the assignment you want to exempt students from, click the drop-down menu next to the assignment name and then choose Enter Grades.
- Then select the checkbox next to each student’s name that you want to exempt from the assignment and then click Exempt from the options above the table.
- Finally, click Save and Close to apply the changes.
Exemptions in the Gradebook: Assignments that have been exempt in the Brightspace grade book will show up in a students SLP Gradebook. However, they will not count towards a students score. For more information on how students can view exemptions, see View Exempt Grade.
