  3. Choose a category, if desired. If category grades are weighted relative to one another, then the extra credit points assigned will be weighted according to the category settings.

    The extra credit entry will not have a set grading scheme or max points, but will simply allow teachers to add points, bumping up the student's average.

Here is a quick video without sound showing the process of adding an extra credit entry, inputting points for a student, and the resulting increase in grade average.
