Can somebody explain to me the benefit of the Grade Override Feature? These override grades are not factored into the Overall Grading scheme, making it generally useless for our school.
Brian, you can find an extensive conversation around this feature at Override final grade.
This past weekend's Canvas release has updates that might make the Grade Override feature more useful for your school. Please see https://community.canvaslms.com/docs/DOC-16250-canvas-release-notes-2019-03-30#jive_content_id_New_Gradebook.
Brian P. Calnan, we would like to use the final grade override to allow faculty to report incomplete grades. The drawback is that it has to be added to the grading scheme to make this work. Unfortunately, how do you assign a percentage to set as an incomplete without running the risk of a student achieving that percentage but not really qualifying for an incomplete?
We would like to be able to set a release date for the final grade to be available to students. Is there an option to mute the Override grade until a certain date?
