Differences in Send To... / Copy To...

Community Member

I recently had to support a staff member to share an assignment portal to 12 other Canvas course sites that featured a unique Letter Grade Grading Scheme.

We used the Send To.. option to share it. Once it was shared and Imported into the other units, the Grading Scheme was lost and wasn't available to be selected in the unit.

We used the Copy To.. option to share it. This time, the Grading Scheme for the assignment portal was preserved.

Are there any reasons for this difference in behaviour?

I only discovered this through testing, because we didn't want to have to explain to 12 other staff members how to build a custom Grading Scheme to ensure results reflected correctly to 12 classes of students.
