Customizing your Gradebook:

Teachers can customize their Gradebook by clicking on Edit Settings in the upper left corner. This will allow teachers to edit maximum point values for each assignment and remove assignments from showing up in your Gradebook.

Click edit Settings button to customize points and remove assignments

Configure your Gradebook: 

Click Configure on the Gradebook page and select what type of assignment you want to include in the gradebook, what you want to display in the grade book and if you want students to view report cards. 

Include in Gradebook: This setting controls what type of assignments are in the Gradebook. This will remove all unchecked assignment types from the Gradebook and the assignments will not be included in the computational grade.
Display Settings: These settings controls whether quizzes and exercises are displayed in the Gradebook. This does not remove them from the Gradebook, the assignment is hidden yet still included in the computational grade. You can also toggle the option to remove the flag on Late Assignments.
Student Permissions: This settings controls whether or not students can view their grade report.
Late Assignments: This setting controls whether all assignments automatically receive a zero after the due date. Checking this box will retroactively give all late unopened or not submitted assignments a zero. Teachers can choose the point penalty for assignments once they are submitted and teachers can choose whether the assignments are manually or automatically graded.
Grade Calculations: This setting controls how the final percentage grade is calculated
