You may on occasion discover that after you use the Batch Item Settings to set a gradebook category and then attempt to assign one of the individual items from the table of contents on the home page, the gradebook category will display as "uncategorized" rather than the category you set. This article will show you your options for revealing the category you chose, starting from the Assign button on the home page.
For more information on how to use the Batch Item Settings function in LaunchPad, refer to the help article How do I apply gradebook and other settings for all resources within a particular content type? (How do I use Batch Item Settings?).
Note the "Uncategorized" category
At this point you will expect to see the category you designated for the item in the Assign pop-up menu that appears. Instead, however, you see that the category is listed as "Uncategorized."
Choose your category to assign
At this point, there are three ways to see the category that you anticipated appearing when you clicked Assign.
If you remember the category you selected for the assignment when you used the Batch Item Settings function, click the Category Drop-down menu and select the category.
If you don't remember the category, proceed to Option 2.
Click the Edit option next to Manage Content Item. This will bring up a new edit menu in which you will be able to change your assignment settings.
When you click the assignment tab you will see that the category you selected using the Batch Item Settings feature is now available.
Click the More Options link to the right of your assignment when you go to assign your item. In this option you will bypass using the Assign link altogether.
As with Option 2, you will see that the category you selected when you used the Batch Item Settings feature is now available.
