Canvas Grading Best Practices

  • Before using GradeSync, it is best to grade all assignments for all students and post all grades. There should be no blank or empty spaces in your gradebook. If you see an eye with a slash icon, you have not posted all grades. See How do I use the icons and colors in the Gradebook?
  • The letter grade that the instructor sees in the Canvas Grades Total column is what will be sent to REGIS. If the Total column has an eye icon with a slash, the student may see a different letter grade than the instructor. This occurs if there are still unposted grades in the gradebook. Posting all grades ensures there is no confusion for the student.
  • Instructors may prefer to hide totals in students’ grade summaries and hide grade distribution scoring details from students.
  • Instructors may choose to override a student’s final letter grade.
  • Communicate with co-instructors as to who will be sending grades to REGIS. There will be no indicator that grades have been sent to REGIS by another instructor.
