The Gradebook, inside of Canvas, helps instructors view and enter grades for their students. Depending on the Grade display type, grades for each assignment can be viewed as points, percentage, complete or incomplete, GPA scale, or letter grade. This session will explore the different tools within the Gradebook such as SpeedGrader, as well as highlight some of the limitations of grading students within Canvas. The session is ideal for faculty new to Canvas or faculty who would like to have a more in-depth understanding of the Gradebook and its functionality within Canvas.


At the end of this session participants will be able to:

  • Open and view the gradebook within Canvas.
  • Switch from class to individual view
  • Filter students
  • Change a variety of viewing settings based on preference
  • Explore the meanings of icons and colors that represent assignments and submission statuses within Canvas.
  • Evaluate both individual and group work
  • Enter and edit scores
  • Leave comments for your students
  • View total grades as a point value instead of a percentage (by default, total grades are shown as a percentage with two decimal places)
  • Excuse an assignment, discussion, or quiz for a student or multiple students
  • Exclude an assignment from the final grade
  • View assignment details
  • View the assignment in SpeedGrader
  • Send a message to your students
