Gradebook Menu


The main Gradebook allows you to see all students, assignments, and grades. In the Gradebook menu, you also switch between several options as available:

Learning Mastery [1] displays the Learning Mastery Gradebook, which assesses outcome standards being used in Canvas courses. This gradebook is a course-level feature option.

Individual View [2] allows you to assess one student and one assignment at a time and is fully accessible for screen readers. Individual View currently does not support settings and options from the New Gradebook.

Gradebook History [3] displays the Gradebook History page, which logs recent grade changes in the course according to student, grader, assignment, and date.

You can switch between gradebooks at any time.

Gradebook Viewing Options


The View menu allows you to filter and sort the Gradebook according to several viewing options:

Gradebook Actions Menu


The Actions menu allows you to sync grades to your institution’s student information system (SIS), if applicable.

To bulk manage student grades in the Gradebook, you can also import grades [2] and export grades [3].

Note: Currently the Gradebook Export CSV file data includes all Gradebook data regardless of filtered or sorting options.

Gradebook Settings


The Gradebook Settings allow you to apply late policies in your course [1].

The Missing Submission policy allows you to automatically apply a grade for submissions labeled as Missing [2]. A submission is labeled Missing when the due date has passed and the assignment has not been submitted.

The Late Submission policy allows you to automatically apply a defined penalty to submissions with a status of Late [3]. A submission is labeled Late when it is submitted past the due date. Additionally, you can define a threshold under which a student will not be scored, regardless of how late the submission is when submitted.

Enter Grades


When entering grades, the New Gradebook displays crosshairs and highlighting across the row and column for improved orientation.
To enter grades, type the grade as supported by assignment type directly in the Gradebook cell [1].

You can access SpeedGrader and also enter grades and change the submission status by clicking the Grade Detail Tray icon [2].
