Include A Final Letter Grade In The Gradebook

GradesA final letter grade is automatically calculated and displayed in the Canvas gradebook for both students and instructors.

Grading Scheme is enabled to automatically generate a letter grade based on the student’s final grade percentage in the Canvas course gradebook.

NOTE:  The default grading scheme follows a standard 10% breakdown (e.g. 100-90%=A, 89-80%=B, etc.).  This can be adjusted by the instructor as needed.
