13 Hiding Students from the Roster Students who are removed from the roster will also be hidden from most areas of your class such as the Roster, Gradebook, and Attendance features, the Inbox recipients list, and the Dropbox. Removed students should not receive Notifications from the class in which they are removed.Where did all of their data go? Why can't I just delete my removed students?In the interest of preventing the accidental loss of important student information, Haiku no longer allows Teachers or Administrators to completely delete users with data from the Roster of a class. Once a user is removed from the roster, it seems like their data has disappeared, but it has not been deleted. You can re-enable a removed student at any time by unchecking the "Hide disabled students" option. The student will reappear in your Gradebook, Inbox recipients list, etc. All of their data should be repopulated.Please note: In order to maintain the integrity of Wikiprojects and Discussions, student work submitted to those areas of a class will not be hidden when the student is removed from the Roster.
14 Publishing GradesBy default all grades are not visible to student until you publish it.You have to publish each entry and the subtotal to make them visible to student.If the published subtotal is different than the Subtotal, it means not all gradebook entries have been published.
15 Extra CreditSelect the checkbox "Make this an extra credit assignment"You can find this checkbox on any grade-able item (assignments, assessments, discussions and miscellaneous items)You can then specify a total number possible, but if the user gets zero points then there is no penalty. If they do get points those points get added to their total score for the category.
