Overview

If you are using the Web Grading Sync tool in Canvas to sync your students' final grades to the Registrar’s web grading system, you will need to make note of how you want ungraded items to be treated, to ensure that your student's final grades are sync correctly. Skip to step 4 for instructions for the New Gradebook (beta), and to Step 8 to find the Ungraded Items Setting.

Step

Grades Tool Instructions

The Grades tool is linked from the course navigation bar. To find the ungraded items setting, click Grades on the course navigation bar. 

Step

Click the cog wheel icon on the right hand side of the page. If the Treat Ungraded Item as 0 box is checked, this setting has been enabled. If there isn’t a check mark, then any ungraded items are being dropped.
