Why is there a red line through my grade in Gradebook?

The red strike-through is there because the item is not being averaged into the course grade.

The reasons for a grade not being averaged into your course grade could be because:

  • your instructor is dropping a grade
  • your instructor has chosen not included the grade in the average
  • the item has been excused for you


This is a screenshot of a student's Gradebook that shows four exams with one exam being dropped. The dropped exam grade is red and struck through.
