Comparing Instructor & Student Gradebook Views

This page provides views of the Gradebook for Instructors, and also shows what students see in their view of Grades.  Note that the student view is different, and it is helpful to remind them where to find the feedback you provide in SpeedGrader as well as the annotations made on their submissions.  For more information about Canvas Grades, check out the complete module on Canvas Grades.

Grader Predictor

The Student view of Grades will show progress towards the final grade and also provides an option for students to predict their final grade if they get certain grades.  When viewing their grades, if a student puts a checkmark in the box, Calculations are based only on Graded assignments, they get their grade if the course ended right then.  This can be very misleading if students missed any assignments and the instructor hasn't given them a 0 for that grade item.  (the grade is still a "-" in the gradebook) 

Students can also enter What-if scores for any future assignments and Canvas will calculate their grade based on those What-if scores.
