Submitting Final Grades for Self-paced Canvas Courses

Self-paced courses require the Final Grade Override column in the Gradebook, see Figure 1.

Instructors teaching a self-paced course only enter an Override Grade in Canvas. A script will pick up the grades and load them into SIS.

Note: When a final grade override is entered as a letter grade, the percentage score for the assignment is the lower limit of the range assigned to that letter grade in the course grading scheme. For example, your course grading scheme may designate a range of 86% to 89% for a B+ letter grade. Entering a B+ for a final grade override assigns a percentage of 86%. To ensure students receive a specific percentage for their final grade, enter the grade override as a percentage in accordance with your grading scheme.

When a final grade is not entered into the override column on or before the date that a student's enrollment ends, a grade of NR will be automatically applied in PeopleSoft. In this event, the instructor may complete an electronic change-of-grade form to formally update the student grade.  If the window of time to complete the electronic form has elapsed, the instructor can contact the registrar directly for further assistance.
