Display Letter Grade/Grading Scheme Letter on Student Grades Page?
We are using the View All Grades script created by @James so that our homeroom teachers and support staff can get a better picture of student performance across all courses in Canvas. This has been an extremely helpful tool for us! This year however, our high school has been moving to a mastery-based grading approach (ie. 4, 3, 2, 1 rubrics for every assignment).
This is difficult to communicate through Canvas, primarily because the standard 90 = A, 80 = B, etc., grading scales may no longer apply. For example, our range for B- through B+ actually scales from ~62% to ~87%. We are doing our best to manage this with Grading Schemes, and that works fine at the course level because that new scale shows on the Student View of Grades and in the course Gradebook (see below):
The issue arises when a student, parent, teacher, or support staff looks at the course-wide grades page. Grading schemes do not appear in this page! So, if a user is not aware of the Grading Scheme applied to the course, they could assume the student is actually doing worse than they are (it looks like they have a C, when actually they have a B - see Math 1A below).
Thanks for any help or insight you might have on this!
