Additional Gradebook Functions
Late Assignment Policy
You can set a blanket late policy for all assignments in Canvas. This option can be found by navigating to the global settings menu in Gradebook, through the settings icon on the right-hand side of the screen.
You can choose to apply an automatic grade for missing submissions (1) and set late submission parameters, including deduction percent for missing assignments (2), deduction percent for late assignments and the deduction interval (3), and the lowest possible grade for a submitted assignment (4).
Final Grade Override
There is an option to override the final grade in Gradebook. It can be found by navigating to the global settings menu in Gradebook, through the settings icon on the right-hand side of the screen. The option to add a Final Grade Override is found under the Advanced tab.
This allows you to adjust the final grade total and post it in Canvas Gradebook for your students.
Grade Detail Tray
Another helpful tool is the Grade Detail Tray.
This menu can be accessed by clicking in the cell with the student’s grade in a particular assignment (1). An arrow will appear (2), and when you click on it, the individual student menu will appear.
You can use the Grade Detail Tray to adjust grades (1), change the assignment status(2), or visit SpeedGrader (3) for a particular student. You can also navigate between assignments and/or students using the arrows (4).
