During the summer of 2017, we released a new Buzz UI and a cleaner, simpler user experience!

Until all users have switched to the new UI, our Help Center articles will include information for both. 

Click the header below that matches the Buzz UI version you are using (Old UI or New UI); if you don't know which version you are using, review the differences and/or contact the course's teacher.

Old UI

The What If screen allows you to enter the scores you might receive (or hope to receive) for individual assignments, and see how those Projected scores impact your overall grade.

To access this screen, open the Performance tool from the Main Menu and select the What If tab:

  1. In the Projected Score fields, you can enter the scores you think you might receive.
  2. Click No Credit to enter zeros into the fields of all ungraded activities.
  3. Click Full Credit to enter 100% into the fields of all ungraded activities.
  4. Click Recalculate after editing the Projected Score fields to see how the changes would impact your final score. The score is displayed in the Projected score line in the top left under your Actual score.  
  5. Click Reset to return all fields to their current state.

This feature doesn't work with multi-outcome scoring does it?
