How can I make Canvas show assignment averages to students?

Jump to solution

When I used Blackboard, there was a feature where students could see their grade on a specific assignment but also see the overall average for that particular assignment. Is this possible on Canvas?

 @amyers8 , greetings! Yes, you can do this in Canvas. Go to the course, click on Settings, scroll down and click "More Options," then make sure the box next to "Hide grade distribution graphs from students" is NOT checked. What this does is allow students to view their grade on an assignment, as well as the grade distribution for the assignment from their Grades page. Side note, I think the default is that this information is visible to students.

If you want to make sure students know how to view this information, you could provide them the following guide - How do I view my grades in a current course?. The specific information for this is under the "View Scoring Details" heading.

Hope this helps! Kona
