A Custom Mark is an optional character you may use to remember why the assignment grade is what you assigned. For example you may have a zero for a child's grade, but you entered "ab" as a custom mark which tells you that the child was absent on the day the assignment was administered. You can assign a value to what the "ab" means. In this lesson you will learn how to setup and use Custom Marks.
Note: The mark X is automatically a custom mark in our system that means the assignment is missing and worth 0 (zero) points. Though it does not show on this page, it can be used whenever you are entering custom marks in assignments since it is built into our programming.
