I would like my students to be able to see their total calculated grade as they go throughout the semester. Currently where their grade should be posted there is a comment that says "Calculation of totals has been disabled." I went into settings, then into more options, and unchecked the box "hide totals in student grades summary." This should have solved the problem.. However, me and my students are still unable to see their calculated grades. How can I get this resolved?
What you describe should have fixed the issue. Are you sure you clicked the Update Course Details button after making that change? It's also weird that you would not be able to see them. That check box should only affect what the students see. You might want to check with your local Canvas admin as well to see if they did some sort of custom setting to hide this information.
