Making certain changes in BYU Learning Suite can invalidate calculated columns. Because of this, it is recommended that you create all calculated columns at the end of the semester. The following changes can invalidate calculated columns:
- Adding or removing assignments
- Adding or removing categories
- Changing how assignments are graded (i.e. grades assignments, ungraded assignments, extra credit)
If any of these changes are made in Learning Suite and you have calculated columns created, the next time you enter the final grades tab an Invalid Calculation Error message will appear. It will specify what calculated column was affected and what change caused the invalidation.
It is recommended that you delete the calculated column because it is no longer functional. You can do this by selecting Delete Now. If, however, you want to view the settings before the calculated column is deleted, select Delete Later. This would then require you to delete the column manually by clicking the drop down arrow next to the title and then selecting Delete Calculation.
