In a Multi-Outcome Scoring courses, teachers have the ability to selectively excuse students from individual scoring outcomes in an activity by entering an X in the score box for that outcome. Doing this excludes that outcome from impacting the activity's grade.
In this example, my student was absent and couldn't participate in the collaborative portion of this activity, so I wish to excuse that SWLO.
- Put an "X" in the box of the outcome you wish to excuse.
You may also excuse this outcome for multiple students while using the Batch Scoring Tool. Click on Tools (wrench icon) and then click on "batch update scores" in the dropdown.
Here, you also put an "X" in the box next to the outcome you wish to excuse.
