Entering a Quiz Grade Value for an in class quiz

Jump to solution

Hello,

I am piloting canvas this fall for our college. The class is not a distance learning class but I will have the class take one exam outside the classroom to see how well they do with the technology.

I gave quiz/exam 1 in class out of 50 points. I created a Quiz 1 place holder in the assignments and quiz folder but I am not able to enter a value for the quiz is worth. Entering their grades manually, they all read 45/0 rather than 45/50. How can I include a grade value for a quiz they take in class with paper and pencil or is that not possible?

Thanks

 @williams_1887 , for any quizzes not given online in Canvas you need to create the assignment as an "Assignment" (type) rather than a quiz (type). This means you would need to delete the current quiz/exam 1 and recreate it as an Assignment (but with the same name - quiz/exam 1). You will then be able to enter the total number of points the quiz is worth and enter your grades correctly in the gradebook.

Hope this helps!
