If you are teaching a seven week course that started at the beginning of the Fall 2019 semester, there are a few things you should be aware of as the seven week term winds down:
- Unmute assignments - Students will not see their grade calculated correctly if there are muted assignments. To prevent student confusion, make sure to unmute all assignments.
- Enter zeros in the gradebook for missing assignments - The gradebook does not automatically enter zeros for missing grades. By leaving a missing grade in the gradebook, the final grade for a student with a missing assignment will be calculated with that assignment removed from the grade calculation (ie a higher grade that is not accurately reflecting the student's actual grade). You can enter zeros in the gradebook manually, or you can use the Set Default Grade.
- Review grades in the total column - Make sure that Canvas is correctly calculating your grades and that the final grade matches the grade distribution in your syllabus.
- Send grades to PeopleSoft - Now you can send your final grades directly from Canvas to PeopleSoft by using the Canvas guide: Send Grades to PeopleSoft. You can still use the old way of uploading grades via MyU if you do not want to send grades from Canvas.
