Transfer grades from Canvas to Ladok
The "KTH Transfer to Ladok" function helps you to transfer grades from published assignments in Canvas to Ladok modules. In order for the transfer to work, certain criteria for the assignment in Canvas must be met. Here you will find the information on how to use the function, both presented in text and in a short video.

Important to note
The application can transfer letter grades from a column in Canvas Gradebook to draft status for a Ladok module (i.e. not the final grade of the course).
Grading scheme must be used for the assignment
The assignment that corresponds to the column in Canvas Gradebook needs to be configured to use Letter grades and use a grading scheme. Which grading scheme that is to be used depends on which grades are used for the Ladok module. There are two ready-made suggestions that can be used, which have the names:
- "A-F grading scheme (including Fx)"
- "Pass/Fail grading scheme 80%",
Alternatively you can create your own grading scheme and make it work with KTH transfer to Ladok. Then use the same characters as in the already mentioned grading schemes, but enter your own percentage limits for the scheme.
If you want to use the tool transfer to Ladok but have a way of weighing grades that are not supported in Canvas, you should still choose Letter grades that match which grades are used for the Ladok module. You can then, through export and import to the Gradebook, make your own weighting of the assessments/grades and enter them in the Gradebook and then transfer them to Ladok. Here you can read more about weighing options for grades.
- Grades that have status "marked as ready" or "certified" in Ladok will not be transferred from Canvas. Please use Ladok if you want to update grades with that status.
- Transfer of examination points is currently not supported.
