Friday, August 23, 2019 - 10:00am

If you would like to see what the new gradebook looks like without committing to using it for your course, you can set up a development site or contact TEL for help.  If you want to use the new gradebook, follow the steps below to get started.

If you decide to try out the gradebook, note that you cannot turn it off once you turn it on and it will retroactively affect your previous course gradebooks.  This means that all your old gradebooks will be "updated" to have the new gradebook, but it will not affect any of scores in the previous gradebooks.

Turning on the New Gradebook


  1. Start by going to "Settings" in course navigation of your course. 

    Canvas Course Navigation, "Settings" highlighted.
  2. Click on the "Feature Options" tab at the top.

    Canvas Settings Navigation Tabs

  3. Toggle the New Gradebook feature "On".

You have now successfully turned on the new gradebook feature!
