In your gradebook, it is possible to set a student's grade as EXEMPT for specific assignments. When you are reviewing grades, this helps you to keep track of students who still need to make up work or have earned zeroes by not submitting work.
This is also useful if you crosslist a course or want to manage group assignments without creating D2L groups.
