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.

KTH Transfer to Ladok

The application KTH Transfer to Ladok enables a secure transfer of digital grades from Canvas to Ladok, and reduces the amount of manual grade administration. With KTH Transfer to Ladok you can transfer letter grades from a column in a Canvas grade book to the draft status of a Ladok module.

Important to note

The result for a course module has to be reported to Ladok within 15 working days after the examination date. 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.
