My students went on an optional field trip for which they received extra credit points. How do I add in the extra credit points to their grade in Canvas without affecting the points of the students who did not attend the field trip?
Hi Ronda Anderson , and Welcome to the Canvas community!
Easy peasy! Effortless,, simple, smooth, uncomplicated, facile, no bother, no problemo, piece of cake - okay, that's enough of that. Obviously I have too much time on my hands!
Anyways you can create a grading column in the gradebook for this purpose by creating a "No submission" assignment worth zero points. Then, in the instructions you identify the assignment as extra-credit worth 5,287 points (or whatever you wish). Then after students return from the field trip, you use SpeedGrader to give them the appropriate amount of points.

And this guide details what I just told you plus a bit more............. How do I give extra credit in a course?
I do this all the time!
You are fabulous Kelley! Thanks for sharing. I'm impressed with the quick reply to my question.
I figured I could add extra credit points to an existing assignment, but I really didn't want to do it this way and keep the extra credit separate since all the students will not participate in doing the extra credit.
Garsh! Now I'm blushing!
You are most welcome, Ronda !
Just wanted to let you know.....I did it! You were right Kelly, it was easy to do.
Thank You again!
