The Grades function in Canvas

Grades in Canvas are presented in an overview in the Gradebook for teachers and students. More detailed assessments are made in SpeedGrader for both assignments and quizzes, but in slightly different ways. It is also possible to automate the transfer of grades in Canvas to Ladok. On the following pages you can learn more.

You can navigate to the pages about "Grades" in the navigation menu or click on the links under each heading.

The Gradebook

In Canvas' navigation menu option "Grades", you can find the Gradebook, where the teacher and students get a visual overview of all assessments. In order for assessments in Canvas to work optimally, you sometimes need to set a "grading scheme" for an assignment or arrange "assignment groups" so that the grades are weighed together in the way you as a teacher want.
