I have a journal entry location in my grade book, however, it is a duplicate entry. How do I delete the assignment from the grade book.

    Hi @Angelique.S.880

    Welcome to the Brightspace Community.

    So, before deleting a grade item, you must verify whether it is associated with any activity in your course.

    In your course,

    • Go to Grades
    • Then, go to "Manage Grades"
    • Next, under the "Associations" column, click the interrogation mark (if the undesired grade item is indeed associated with an assignment, you will be able to confirm that here".
    • If there's no association, you'll only see a dash, in this case, select the undesired grade item.
    • Click "More Actions"
    • Finally, "Delete".

    If there is an assignment associated with the said grade item, you will have to access the activity it is linked to in order to undo its association:

    • Go to Assignments > Click the dropdown menu next to the assignment's name > Go to "Edit Assignment"
    1. Then Click "In GradeBook"
    2. Next, select "Not in Grade Book".
    • Don't forget to save.

    Now that you have undone the said association, you can go back to your course Gradebook tool and follow the first set of steps provided above.
