Add the Dropbox Folder to the Gradebook


This tutorial shows you how to associate an existing Dropbox with an existing grade item in your gradebook. When you create a Dropbox, the system automatically creates a corresponding grade item with the same name and value unless you edit the association in the “In Gradebook” area.

ATTENTION: If you create a NEW Dropbox in MyCourses, a grade item will automatically be created and associated with that Dropbox. If you created a new Dropbox and are now looking to link it to a grade item, check your gradebook FIRST.
