Many Canvas institutions offer programs governed by state or accreditation board requirements for high-stakes testing. Requirements for such programs often include the need to grade students with precision to the second decimal place.



User goals

As an instructor:

  • I see two decimal places in the calculated totals column in my course gradebooks
  • I see data related to any grading scheme I might have implemented in the totals column, too, and the addition of the second decimal place doesn't cause this information to appear squished or too small to read
  • When I download a gradebook .csv from one of my courses, the totals column in the .csv also includes two decimal places


This feature is currently in QA. We anticipate it will be ready for the production release on 6/6/15.
