Canvas Quick Tip: Grade Sorting for Students

In Canvas, when students view the Grades page, they can sort grades by Assignment Group, Due Date, Module, and Title. By default, sorting is by Due Date. If Modules or Assignment Groups aren’t used in the course, they won’t be included in the sorting options.

Canvas: Hide Score Total for Assessment Results (re: Rubrics)

I’ve been playing around in the “Rubrics” tool a lot lately. One button that really confused me was the “Hide Score Total for Assessment Results” button (see below).Rubric 1Rubric 1Well, I’ve been able to figure out what this tool does. It determines whether or not you see a “total score” for the rubric within the “SpeedGrader.”

Rubric 2Rubric 2

If enabled, it does not calculate the rubric score and translate that automatically to the grades area. So, if you use a rubric, and want to grade from AND want Canvas to take the rubric grade and auto place it into the grades area, keep this option unselected.

D2L: Navigation Bar is Back in the Gradebook !

For those of you who don’t know, we recently updated D2L from 10.1 SP4 to 10.1 SP5. With this upgrade comes the return of the navigation bar within the gradebook! Before this upgrade, the navigation bar disappeared when you were in “enter grades,” and there was no obvious way of getting out of the gradebook (see below).

Grades 2Above is the old version where the navigation bar disappeared. Below is the new and improved version !
