View Gradebook Menu

The main Gradebook allows you to see all students, assignments, and grades. In the Gradebook menu, you also switch between several options, listed below in descending order:

  1. Learning Mastery displays the Learning Mastery Gradebook, which assesses outcome standards being used in Canvas courses. This gradebook is a course-level feature option so you will not see this unless you have turned it on in settings.

  2. Individual View allows you to assess one student and one assignment at a time and is fully accessible for screen readers.

  3. Gradebook History displays the Gradebook History page, which logs recent grade changes in the course according to student, grader, assignment, and date.

You can switch between gradebooks at any time.

View Gradebook Viewing Options

The View menu allows you to filter and sort the Gradebook according to several viewing options:

  1. Arrange By arranges columns by default, assignment name, due date, points, or module
  2. Filters filters columns by type (assignment group, section, modules, student groups, if applicable)
  3. Statuses views and changes the color for a grading status (late, missing, resubmitted, dropped, and excused)
  4. Columns shows or hides the notes column and unpublished assignments columns

View Actions Menu

To bulk manage student grades in the Gradebook, hover over the Actions menu. Here, you can import grades and export grades. Please note the Gradebook Export CSV file data currently includes all Gradebook data regardless of filtered or sorting options.
