Beginning on Tuesday, April 10, students will see a letter grade in the Grades tool in Canvas (calculated from the grades that have been provided to date) where they previously saw only a percentage.
This change is being made so that later this semester, OIT’s Canvas support team can release new functionality that will improve the experience you have when submitting final grades to the Registrar’s web grading system. This spring, you will be able to export your final grades from Canvas in a format ready for immediate upload into the web grading system.
The Registrar’s web grading system requires instructors to use letter grades when submitting final course grades. In order to prepare courses for the new functionality, we need to apply a letter-based grading scheme to all courses in Canvas.
We will be applying the grade scheme below on Tuesday, April 10.
|A||100% to 94%|
|A-||< 94% to 90%|
|B+||< 90% to 87%|
|B||< 87% to 83%|
|B-||< 83% to 80%|
|C+||< 80% to 77%|
|C||< 77% to 73%|
|C-||< 73% to 70%|
|D+||< 70% to 67%|
|D||< 67% to 63%|
|D-||< 63% to 60%|
|F||< 60% to 0%|
Once the scheme is applied to courses, a letter grade will appear after the numerical grade in the Total column in Canvas gradebooks as shown below.
How can Instructors prepare for this change?
Note that if you already have a custom grading scheme in your course, it will not be overwritten.
