Canvas: New Gradebook Settings (Late work policies and Grade Posting Policy)

This article includes instructions on where to set late policies and grade release policies for a Canvas course.

View Gradebook Settings


The Gradebook Settings page allows you to apply Late Policies, Grade Posting Policies, or a Final Grade Override in your course.

View Late Policies


The Late Policies tab allows you to apply late policies in your course.

The Missing Submission policy option allows you to automatically apply a grade for submissions labeled as Missing. A submission is labeled Missing when the due date has passed and the assignment has not been submitted.

The Late Submission policy option allows you to automatically apply a defined penalty to submissions with a status of Late. A submission is labeled Late when it is submitted past the due date. Additionally, you can define a threshold under which a student will not be scored, regardless of how late the submission is when submitted. 

View Grade Posting Policy


The Grade Posting Policy tab allows you to change grade posting policies for your course.

To automatically post grades and make them visible to students as soon as they are entered, select the Automatically Post Grades option, listed first under this tab. IMPORTANT: The posting policy is set to Automatically Post Grades by default.

To hide grades by default and manually choose when to post grades and make them visible to students, select the Manually Post Grades option, listed second.

Please note that grades for anonymous or moderated assignments must be manually posted. Moderated assignments grades cannot be unhidden until final grades have been posted.
