Problem with Grading Schema

Jump to solution

Screen Shot 2021-04-21 at 12.49.38 pm.pngScreen Shot 2021-04-21 at 12.56.42 pm.pngHi 

I have a staff member who wants to set a grading schema like this:

Competent - 100% to 99%

Not Yet Competent - < 99% to 0%

This sets up fine but when it comes to use the schema it displays as:

Competent < 94% to 93%

Not Yet Competent < 93% to 0%

Now I'm trying to persuade the faculty member that there better ways of trying to achieve what she wants to achieve. Nevertheless I'm curious as to why Canvas is behaving like this.

Apparently this approach used to work fine.

Any ideas?

Many Tx

Mark

@marksmithers  I know it's been a while since you posted your question, but were you ever able to resolve this? I just created this grading scheme without issue so I'm hopeful that whatever you encountered was a transitory glitch.

Hello, 
you seem to know what you're doing and I need some help!  

I have some students in my course that do not get number grades so...

 I changed my grading scheme to show EXC, VG, G etc.  It is saved and remembers it next time I return.

BUT when they submit assignments I grade with numbers and they get number grades.

CAN I...
a.  have students see EXC, VG etc but still have numbers on my grade book?

What am I doing wrong that the grading scheme isn't actually active??

Hi @TheresaPeters,

For the student view, you likely just need to edit your assignment(s) to use letter grades and select the grading scheme you created.  The guide I linked there should guide you through all of the steps you need to take, just repeat them for each of your assignments.  The students would see both the points and the letter equivalent in their view of the gradebook.  For your view, you could choose to see points, percentage, or letter grade by changing the "enter grades as" selection from the three dots menu next to the assignment name in the gradebook.

I am seeing a similar issue with the Grading Scheme in our courses. Here is what I am seeing:

I edit my Grade Scheme

After clicking save it displays the following:

grade_scheme_02.png

Since this isn't what was set, if I tried to edit to fix it I get this screen which doesn't allow me to edit the high end of the range.

But if I click on Save, click "Done" and "Update Course Details" and the page refreshes it will display properly.

I have a link to a video showing the issue.

https://mediaspace.uab.edu/media/Grading+Scheme/1_snr5tp8b 

I have placed this in as a support call and am awaiting a ticket number for reference.
