As a new Canvas instructor, I am wondering if it is possible to show % averages for individual weighted groups, as well as an overall course average based to those group averages. Thank you.
Students can see the average of their weighted gradebooks at the end of the gradebook. Also if you are looking for more specific options there is an analytics beta option under settings for the course.that will give you the basics for each student. Also in the Home page right corner you can access the course analytics which will give you all the information you need. I'm not sure if this will help but let me know if you have other questions.
Hi Sev and welcome to the Canvas Community!
Are you looking for an overall class average for each assignment group and an overall average for all students in the course? If so, I don't see anything in the UI of the old gradebook and not sure what is in the new gradebook. I did a quick export of grades to an Excel file and could quickly generate averages for each assignment group and the course total.
Hi Randy, and thanks for the reply. The averages are those for students to view in the gradebook. I do keep my own grades in Excel, but after recently migrating from Blackboard to Canvas, calculated averages for each graded category was a really useful feature in Bb. I’m wondering is anyone else used that feature in Bb and found a way to somehow emulate it is Canvas. Thank you again,
I totally understand where you are coming from Sev. I don't see anything in the student interface that shows class averages in assignment groups or a course average. You might create an idea and see if you can get enough votes to have the dev team take a look at this sometime in the future. I did a quick search and didn't see anything like this out there at present. Fill out the form at: https://community.canvaslms.com/community/create-idea!input.jspa?containerID=2020&containerType=14 to submit a new idea if you want to see this added to Canvas.
Thanks again, Randy. I appreciate the follow-up and suggestion!
Thank you, Pablo. By the time I built and launched my Canvas course, that was revealed. Nonetheless, I appreciate the follow-up!
Hello! We have recently implemented the new grade book and I've looked at the new course analytics tool but I'm still not seeing an overall course average for all students and all grades in the course. Is this available in the new gradebook and I'm just not finding it? Thank you!
Cathy under Home you can select Course analytics and then scroll down to see their current score. If you hover the assignments you can also see the median and more info. as for averages, you would have to activate the analytics beta under settings and navigation and that provides more information on that. I hope this helps.
