How do I manually enter a grade on an assignment with multiple submissions?

Jump to solution

I have a student who made two submissions for a quiz and I want to conflate both into one grade. I have assigned her a grade, but the grade book will not reflect the grade I assigned her. In fact it has the "not graded" image where the grade should be. I just want to give her the grade I assigned her, but Canvas will not allow me to even manually enter the grade. Any solutions?

Hi, Eric. I found the answer! The grade in both submissions have to be identical to show up in the grade column. I entered the same grade for both, updated the score and the grade book took the grade. Thanks for your help!

Hi  @jparker20  and welcome to the Community!  Just for clarification, have you tried going to the Grades tab and typing in the grade you wish the student to have in the correct cell?  If so, when doing this the grade will not save and changes back to ungraded?  Typing directly into the grade book should overwrite any automatically given score so it would be strange if this didn't work correctly.

Thanks for the additional information!

I tried typing the grade directly into the grade book spot, but it does not seem to work. The icon of a page and an exclamation appears in the place of where the grade should be.

No problem  @jparker20   Thanks for the update!  It is good to know what you found that works in this situation in case anyone else runs into a similar issue.  

Best wishes!
