Automated Deduction of Points for Late Work

I know that there is not a native feature in Canvas that automatically deducts points for late work, but does anyone know of an API script that can generate this automation?

 @DonLourcey , if you switch to the new gradebook then it does have the functionality to automatically adjust grades for being late. 

If this doesn’t help then you might want to check out the Canvas Developers‌ group. They are the ones that really did in and do stuff with the Canvas API. 

Hope this helps! Kona

Hi Don Lourcey,

To follow up with  @kona 's advice, the new gradebook is definitely the way to go. But instead of deducting points, it deducts a percentage of the total points. This difference may have implications if you want to do a standard 5-point penalty on late assignments regardless of total points possible on different assignments, but it makes it really easy to do a 50% deduction on assignments.

Good luck,
