Gradebook Assignment Extra Credit option
When gradebook assignments are designated to have 0 points, please disable extra credit as the default when 0 points are assigned. Students are getting confused thinking an assignment is zero points, and it's confusing teachers as well.
I strongly believe that any/every assignment given should have the option of 0 points possible. It shouldn't have to be in a specific category. I don't use categories as I grade solely on points. Being able to assign 0 points possible to any assignments would help out tremendously. (Then I wouldn't have to keep using an old, outdated grade book as my main grade book.

You can create a category that is "Ungraded". This will allow you to enter "0" points and the extra credit does not default,
