Jump to solution

Does Canvas calculate the percentage of a class that achieves a grade of C or better for an assignment?

@lpscranton I am not 100% sure what you are asking.  A "C" is determined by whatever grading scheme you are using which may or may not even include a C (the class can be set however you want so I have faculty that do not include a C range).  

Basically Canvas is just doing the math to calculate a percentage based on the points.  For example 9 out of 10 points is a 90%.  It can then apply a letter grade based on that percent which is determined by how you setup your grading scheme.  I feel like most commonly a 90% = A- but I have seen all kinds of different letter grade setup.  

Here are some guides on grading schemes that might be helpful.

If this does not help answer your question, can you please provide a little more detail on what you are trying to accomplish?

Hope this helps!
