You can use the characters M and X to indicate missing (M) and exempt (X) assignment grades in Gradebook grade entry.

  • Enter M (missing) as an assignment grade to indicate the assignment is missing. The M equals a zero assignment grade in calculations.
  • Enter X (exempt) or leave the grade blank as an assignment grade to indicate the assignment in exempt. The X is ignored and excluded from all calculations. X grades and blank grades do not equal zero. If you enter X as an assignment grade, the X cannot be considered a grade to drop.  If you enter M as an assignment grade, the M can be considered a grade to drop.
    • If a teacher enters 0 or X (exempt) for an assignment, the Missing Assignments Report does not consider the assignment missing.
