Can I add grade points from tests that are not on canvas to my canvas grade book so that it can hold all of my grades (points) and students can see their grades assembled? If so how?
Hi Deanna Horjus-Lang Welcome to the Canvas Community. Thanks for posting your question. Yes, you should be able to do this. If I am interpreting your question correctly, you would like to basically create a column in your Gradebook to act as a placeholder for a test that was not in Canvas. You can do this by creating a regular assignment via your "Assignments" index page. How do I use the Assignments Index Page? You can set the details however, you want...including the number of points possible. How do I add or edit details in an assignment? Your "Submission Type" could either be set to "No Submission" or "On Paper" depending on your preference. This will then create a column for your assignment in your Gradebook so that you can give your students grades for that assignment. Does this help?
Thanks for your quick response! I was thinking of doing that, but didn't want the students to think that there was another test. I even went as far as making one but not publishing it and of course it did not work as publishing is necessary.
I did it with an explanation.
