Faculty using the Canvas Gradebook to record student grades do not need to export and submit grade justifications, as long as it contains ALL grades for the course.
Please send a brief email to your department secretary to inform them you have used Canvas to manage grades.
Final grades must still be reported in MyBC.
End of term Gradebook checks:
- Confirm all assignments are present
If you are recording grades in Canvas, all grades should be included in the Gradebook, including in-class activities.
- Confirm assignments have Due Dates.
Due dates are entered using the settings (Edit) for assignments, discussions and quizzes.
- Enter zeros for missing assignments.
Students are not graded for assignments with no score entered. Be sure to enter zeros for missing work!
- Excuse students from assignments.
You may mark an assignment as “exempt” for a student, if circumstances require it. The points will not be calculated into their final score.
- Ensure that the Final (Letter) Grade is enabled.
This is enabled by default, but faculty should confirm that the letter grade is present and accurate. The default grading scheme (70-80%, 80-90%, etc.) can be adjusted, if needed.
- Did you include the SLOs?
Associated outcomes should be indicated in individual assignment, quiz, or discussion titles.
