# Missing Assignment Preferences

**PATH:** * System Administration > Grading & Standards > Missing Assignments*

The Missing Assignments tool allows districts to control how assignments flagged as Missing are calculated in the Grade Book. Assignments flagged as Missing can function as an indicator only, with no effect on calculations, or enter a percentage to calculate as that percent of Total Points.

*Determine how Missing assignments calculate*

# Missing Assignment Calculation Logic

If the **Auto-Calculate** checkbox is not marked, the Missing flag in the Grade Book becomes an indicator only. In this instance, teachers CAN score assignments flagged as Missing.

If this checkbox is marked, the **Missing Percentage** can be entered. Any assignments flagged as Missing in that school calculate as the entered percentage of **Total Points**. In this instance, teachers CANNOT score assignments flagged as Missing. Teachers can enter scores for missing assignments, but the missing flag must then be removed. For example, if the percentage is set at 25% and an assignment worth 20 points is flagged as missing, that assignment calculates as 5 points. By default, the Missing Percentage entered is 0.

- This logic only applies to assignments scored using Points and Marks, not Rubrics.
- Teachers cannot enter scores for assignments flagged as Missing.
- By default, Missing assignments calculate as 0 points.

Teachers can see the calculated score if applicable by hovering over the score field.
