What does it mean when I see in course Grades that a grade has been dropped?

Instructors have the option of dropping a number of grades in a specific category. If you see the words Dropped in place of a grade in your Grades list, do not worry. This means that your instructor is dropping one or more grades in that category.

An instructor may give 7 Projects and drop the lowest 2 as in the example below.
