The Grades function in Canvas
In "Grades", you are presented with an overview of the grades in the course, called the Gradebook. Both teachers and students can see the Gradebook but they have different views. Here you will find further links to more information about how you can work with grading.
The Gradebook in Canvas
The Gradebook provides teachers and students with a visual overview of assignments and grades. Teachers can also edit grades directly in the overview or proceed to SpeedGrader.
SpeedGrader in Canvas
With SpeedGrader you can grade students' submitted assignments and quizzes. Here it is explained how to find SpeedGrader and how to work in SpeedGrader, both for quizzes and uploaded or scanned documents. You can also read about how to give partial points and how to reassign an assignment.
- Assess documents in Canvas
- Assess results from New Quizzes in Canvas
- Manage results and partial score in Canvas
- Reassign an assignment, for completion
Post grades and quiz results
We recommend that students receive their grades when the grading process is complete for an assignment or quiz and that all students receive their grades at the same time. For assignments, this means that you manually post grades, and for quizzes, you also have to restrict the student result view.
How to assess anonymously in Canvas
KTH recommends anonymous assessment when possible and appropriate, in order to give students an equivalent and legally secure assessment. In Canvas, there are two simple methods for assessing both assignments and quizzes anonymously. This page explains how to set up anonymous assessment, how to carry out the assessment and how to de-anonymise assignments.
Letter grades and grading schemes
To assess an assignment in Canvas with the usual grading scales at KTH, you need to use letter grades. This facilitates the transfer of grades to Ladok. Letter grades require management of grading schemes. It is possible to use preset grading schemes and/or create your own, as well as set one for the entire course.
Three methods of weighing results
You can use three different methods in Canvas to combine a grade from several assignments. You can use outcomes, export and work in an external program or use assignment groups. These methods are described on this page.
