Removing late penalties in an entire gradebook

Jump to solution

I copied a course from last year that had a late penalty of 10% per day down to 60% policy.  This year I chose not to use the policy, so I unchecked it.  This morning, I had a concerned student approach me because he got notified (sometime Sunday night after our tech folks did their maintenance day) that several of his assignments now had this late penalty.

I went in the gradebook, and the late policy had been turned on, so I turned it back off,  (Which was janky - like I had to try a few things to be able to "Apply" the changes) but now there are hundreds of late penalties that won't go away - basically any quiz that Canvas graded that was late, now has this penalty.  I have read in this forum that deleting a late policy doesn't get rid of old late penalties (Why???) so the question is:

What is a quick way to get rid of all of these late penalties that I didn't assign?  (I know you can click in the gradebook at the little arrow after each score, which brings up a sidebar, in which you need to check that the status is "None") - but we are talking about hundreds of scores - not 10 or 20?

My Colleague came up with a solution:

Click the gear in the gradebook, and on the "Late Policies" tab, change the amount deducted per day to 0%, and check the box next to "Automatically apply deduction to late submissions"  This goes through the gradebook, and retroactively changes the penalty to zero.

Yikes, you can remove each "late" by going into Speedgrader and clicking on the little pencil icon for each assignment, but what a pain.
