Today: CDM Brown Bag Workshop: Canvas Grades and the Gradebook

Grades can serve as a communication tool between students and instructors and allow instructors to track the progress of students. The Gradebook stores all information about student progress in the course, measuring both letter grades and course outcomes.

Upon completion of this workshop, participants will be able to:

  • Sort the gradebook by assignment due dates, student names, secondary id, total scores, or group scores
  • Download assignment submissions and grades
  • Create extra assignment columns for non-submission assignments in the Gradebook
  • Give extra credit
  • Assign zeros after deadline
  • Hide grades from students until they are published
  • Create custom weighting, curving, and grade ranges
  • Message students who haven’t submitted an assignment yet, or who scored more than X or less than Y on an assignment
  • Leave private grading notes/comments
  • Excuse an assignment, discussion, or quiz for a student

The last sessions of this workshop is today, Friday, September 23, from noon-12:50 p.m.
