### Exemptions

If all non-exam items are weighted, then if a student has been marked as exempt from one or more assignments:
• His effective grade for the assignments from which he is exempt is the weighted average of all non-exam assignments for which he has a grade
Note: It is possible to include ungraded assignments in the weighted average. See Configuration options
• The special variables exempt and num_exempt can be used in the factory file. For example:
ex: ex1 == exempt ? ex2 : 0.5 * (ex1 + ex2)
final: ![ex1, ex2, ex3, ex4, ex5].avgmax(4 - num_exempt)
Note:
ex1 == exempt
evaluates to true also if he was not exempt from ex1 but his grade happened to be equal to his exempt grade
