I have several assignments that students have completed (I watched them complete it) and its not graded or even showing them as completed. Is there something I need to do to make this happen?
Angela, welcome to the Canvas Community! If the students submitted something to an assignment then the Instructor would need to go in and assign a grade in order for the grade to show up - this is normally done in Speedgrader, but can also be done from the Grades area of Canvas.
Here are a couple of guides that help explain how to do this:
As for them being marked as completed. It depends on whether you're talking about the To Do list or on the Module that they aren't showing up as completed. Could you provide a bit more information on what is happening?
I set up assignments and discussions for each of the chapters I cover. Discussions I know have to be manually headed but that's not the issue. Chapter 1 was an external tool link and graded it automatically. Chapter 2 and 3 assignments (also external took links) did not automatically grade. This is the confusion. Students did the assignments (I watched) yet there is no grade or any verification that they attempted the assignment.

Are you having trouble viewing these grades when you access the gradebook? I had an instructor with this problem yesterday where she would go to the gradebook and it would take a long time to load and not all of the grades showed up. We submitted a support ticket and found out this behavior is happening for users of Internet Explorer and they are working to fix this bug. If you are using IE I would suggest using Chrome or Firefox and not for just this issue since Canvas runs much better through them in general.
