      Description

      The fact that the category total settings are called "Grade Item" is very confusing to my faculty. The term "Grade Item" is used elsewhere to mean "an item to be graded," so when my faculty see "Grade Item" on the Category creation page, they think it is a shortcut to add a grade item inside of that category.

      Can we please call this "Category total" or something else that is more meaningful in this context? "Item name" should also be changed to "Category total name" or something similar.

      Alternatively, we could simply hide the entire "Grade Item" section of the Category settings page behind a Show Advanced button. This would avoid confusing most instructors, since in my experience most faculty do not want to change the name of the Category Total.
