If you have the "Edit Assessment Types" permission, you can add or remove assessment types. This is done from the Configure page by clicking "Edit Assessment Types". This page displays a list of your current assessment types and has a button in the top right-hand corner which enables you to add a new assessment type. These assessment types will be available on the Add Assessment page and in Gradebook, and will be a breakout option for analysis reports.
To add a new assessment type, simply give it a name, choose whether or not it should be available to all schools in your network, and save.
New assessment types will instantly be available in appropriate drop-down menus. However, be aware that any type of assessment not included in a course’s grading methodology won’t count toward student grades. This means that, after adding a new type of assessment, it must be included in a course’s grading methodology for it to be factored into grades.
To remove an assessment type, click the gear icon and choose "Deactivate".
