Can I remove the grading portion altogether? I already have it accounted for on my course syllabus and don't want to confuse students.

UPDATE: The 'Graded' checkbox and the 'Points' for a given block on the Timeline are no longer features of the Wiki Education Dashboard. (They were little used, and not flexible enough for the people who did want to use the Dashboard to keep track of the grading breakdown.)

Selecting modules to be graded

Select the module's you'd like to remove, such as respond to peer review (sample below), and click the "Edit" button on the assignment block.

Then select or unselect the "graded" check box in order to adjust the available graded assignments at the bottom of your course page.

Click "Save" to save your changes. Repeat for other modules that you'd like to include or exclude from the graded values on the Timeline. (No matter which modules you select to be "graded" the Dashboard will still always track your students' work.)

Removing all graded modules

If you'd like there to be no graded assignments, unselect "graded" from all of the assignment modules. Once you have unselected all the assigned modules, the instructor will see "Grading (Total: 0%)" but the students will no longer be able to see the grading portion of the Timeline at all. (No matter which assignments you select to be "graded" their work will still always be tracked by the Dashboard.)

Adjusting the values assigned to each module

You can also adjust the graded values of each assignments you have selected to be graded.

To get to the grading section, you can use the "grading" jump link on the right side of your Timeline.

Once you've jumped or scrolled to the bottom of your Timeline, select "Edit" and adjust the values.

Make sure to click "Save" when you're done.

General tips

While the Dashboard does not automatically track things like "has my student completed the article evaluation" or "has my student turned in a complete draft" you can check in on your students' qualitative progress towards these goals by using the "Students" tab, the "Activity" tab and the "Articles" tab of your course page. See here for more details.
