The Overall Grade panel shows you how items and categories are weighted. For example, based on your instructors' preferences, tests may count for more than homework or quizzes. The percentage listed with each entry shows how much it contributes to your overall grade calculation.

You may still see a grade here or a grade notation to indicate that your participation in the course is unique. Example grade notations include Exempt, Withdrawal, and Incomplete, but your instructor may decide to create custom ones.
