Canvas Grades


Canvas Grades is a Canvas tool for viewing, providing feedback on and grading student assessments. Instructors and students access Canvas Grades through the course menu.

How can I use Canvas Grades in teaching?

  • Keep your students up to date on how they are doing in the class by posting their grades for them to see.
  • Give students feedback on assessments via the SpeedGrader.

What is unique about Grades?

  • Assign final grades by using a point system or a weighted grade system.
  • Show scores as points, letter, percentage or complete/incomplete.
  • Hide grades from students until you are ready to share them with the Grade Posting Policy.
  • Apply a Late Policy to automatically deduct a partial grade to assessments that have been submitted late.

Technical requirements

Grades is a part of Canvas, so there is no software to install. Canvas Grades will run in your web browser and on almost any internet connection.
