The Android Teacher App updated the other day. The Grades tab seems to be gone. I cannot enter grades. Is there a magical incantation I need? Where did it go?
Hi Lois Hertz,
As Eric was describing earlier, there is no specific grading tab in the Canvas teacher app. This is because there is no direct grade book access in the app. You can access assignments that you need to grade (or have already graded) through the assignment itself.
How do I grade an assignment submission in the Teacher app on my Android device?
One potential shortcut -- If the assignment hasn't been graded yet, you can find all assignments that need to be graded through the To Do section of the app as well.
How do I view the To Do list in the Teacher app on my Android device?
The To Do feature was added to make it easier for teachers to find assignments that needed to be graded. Hope this helps!
Hello Lois. I use iOS but just checked and there is no grades tab in the teacher app either, unlike the student app. I can't remember if there was a tab before, but have always graded by going into each assignment and inputting a grade there. I found this document about the Android app and the screenshots don't show a grades tab, How do I grade an assignment submission in the Teacher app on my Android device? . Can you still grade assignments through a each assignment as shown here?
All the best!
I can do this on my computer, but I can't find grades on my tablet. I used
to be able to enter grades on my tablet.
Hi Lois. Just to clarify, if you are on your tablet and click on an individual assignment, do you see a figure listing how many assignments need to be graded? By clicking on this you should see a list of individuals who have submissions to grade. If you click on a student name here, there should be a "+" sign that you can select and enter a grade. Does this process not work on your tablet?
Thanks for the additional information!
I gave a test on paper on Thursday. I graded them and wanted to enter the
grades. Since there is nothing on Canvas to grade, I used to click on
Grades and enter them. Now, I don't have the grades option, so I have no
way to enter the grades. If I go to my computer, Grades is there and I
enter them. I was trying to figure out where Grades went on the app.
Hi Lois. I thought that I would let you know that I tested out creating an assignment on the computer, and if I indicate that the submission is "on paper" at least with the iOS app I can use my mobile device to enter grades for this assignment. However, one cannot create an assignment with the mobile app (iOS or Android). So if you create the assignment ahead of time you should be able to grade with the app but otherwise it may be simpler to just make the assignment and enter the grades at the same time on your laptop/desktop. If you create an assignment on your computer but cannot find it with the mobile app, it would be something worth reporting to Canvas support to see if they have any suggestion on what may be happening.
All the best and if you find out what is happening, please let us know in case it arises anywhere else as well!
I will try. Thanks
These are tests that I have graded on paper. I just want to record the
grades. There are no Canvas submissions to grade. Perhaps I am not
remembering correctly, but I really remember a Grades tab. I still have it
on my computer. I'll just go there. Thanks
