Ability to provide textual information about the categories of different kinds of assignments or grades.
I want to be able to tell students something about that particular category of assignment or exam that is common to all assignments in that category. My work-around is to tell them on the first time they encounter an assignment from that category, but that seems less good because it is confusing about whether it applies to just that assignment or to all assignments in that particular category.

Absolutely. I have categories where the directions for each assignment is the same. I just want to give instructions for the category, not each individual assignment. My work around is to post the category assignment description in "grading policy", but this is also less effective.
