Instructors, particularly K12 instructors, sometimes need to omit an individual assignment from a given student or students' calculated total score. Instructors would like to be able to customize the value they enter in a gradebook cell to excuse an assignment (e.g. "EX" or "NA" or something similar).
We will build this feature in two phases:
- Phase 1: Instructors can “excuse an assignment” for a given student by entering a standard (uniform, Canvas-wide) value (e.g. "EX") in the corresponding gradebook cell.
- Phase 2: Instructors will be able to choose a "status" to assign the excused assignment. The goal is that instructors have the opportunity to excuse an assignment or give the assignment a score AND give the assignment a status like: "late", "missing", "absent", etc.
As an Instructor:
- I can enter a standard value (example: “EX”) to indicate that a given assignment should not be included in the calculation for a given student's the final grade.
|We plan to deliver Phase 1 before Fall semester '15 begins.|
