Some institutions would like to set up courses in Canvas that run across multiple academic grading periods. They need the Canvas gradebook to calculate grades for each academic grading period and/or an overall grade for the course.
User goals

As an instructor:

  • I can use grading periods created by my admin or define grading periods within a given course
  • I can assign quizzes and assignments / assignment groups to a grading period by giving them a due date
  • I can see a given student's grade for a given grading period and/or the entire course


This feature is currently in Beta. We're planning to make this available in production Canvas in late May 2015.
