Categories and grading periods help you organize and weight score for different types of assignments and assessments (e.g. homework, quizzes, tests, etc.). Categories may be created here in manage class or from your grade book settings in your sections. Your sections should use the same categories and grading periods if you want to assign assessments and assignments to them at the same time instead of individually.
