The results in the external grade column are shared with your institution as your students’/participants' grades for your course/organization. You decide which column is set as the external grade. In new courses/organizations, the default total column is the default external grade column, and the external grade icon ( ) appears in the column header. You cannot delete the default total column until you set another column as the external grade.
To set the external grade, access a column's contextual menu and click Set as External Grade. The check mark appears in the column header you chose, and no check mark appears in the default total column header.
If you copy or restore a course, the external grade column you chose remains as the external grade column.
