In the Gradebook window, there are three panels.

Left panel

The left side is a list of the assignments associated to a class. The classes can be selected from the drop down menu at the top of the list. As seen from the screenshot above, the list is empty because assignments have not be created.

Also on this panel is the plus and minus signs at the bottom of the window. The plus sign is to add new assignments and the minus is to delete assignments.

When you click on the plus sign to add an assignment, the Document Administration window will open up.
