# How do I drop the lowest grade(s) from a category?

If you are using a Non-weighted Categories gradebook or a Weighted Category gradebook, you can arrange for a number of the lowest grades in any category to be dropped from Course grade consideration.

## Case: Non-weighted (or weighted) Categories gradebook:

## Right-click the category name and select "Edit this Category".

## Enter the number of lowest category grades to be dropped, then click Save/Close.

This will drop the lowest grade(s) from the Course Grade calculation.

### Example 1:

### Example 2:

Notice that the lowest score in the category is displayed in red with a line drawn through it and that grade is not included in the Course Grade.
