Creating the Grade Import File

  • In order to upload your grades to Banner/DuckWeb, your grade file must be formatted properly.  
  • The Canvas export file will include all the student information, assignments, assignment groups, and final grade calculations.  
  • Make sure the Current Grade and Final Grade match. This indicates that all assignments have been graded and are being calculated in the Final Grade results.  
  • Make sure the Unposted Current Grade and Unposted Final Grade match so you know all assignments are unmuted and students have received all their grades.  
  • When uploading grades to Duckweb, only the SIS ID (95 number) and a Final Grade column are needed -  all the other columns can be deleted from the file you create to import to DuckWeb.  
  • DuckWeb will ask you to indicate which columns contain the SIS ID (95 number) and Final Grade, so be sure to note those.
