Standards Based Grading in Canvas

Quick Question regarding Standards Based Grading in Canvas, our ITF mentioned that the update for Canvas brings in a 1-4 scale for grading.  For my high school class I use a 1-10 scale.  Is there any way to change the scale in Canvas as there is a BIG difference between a 3/4 and and a 9/10.  Thanks all!

If anyone has any other recommendations to bring assessments to Canvas for SBG I'd love to hear it.  My present method uses a mix of Google Forms and hand grading short answers and a boat ton of spreadsheets.

 @dacia_harris ,

First, I want to apologize for your question sitting in the community for so long without a response.


Second, it looks like you have stumped the Canvas Community.  Were you able to find an answer to your question? I am going to go ahead and mark this question as answered because there hasn't been any more activity in a while so I assume that you have the information that you need. If you still have a question about this or if you have information that you would like to share with the community, by all means, please do come back and leave a comment.



I have read a number of messages now about Standards based grading and the need for it on the Canvas platform. In every instance some coach from Canvas eventually posts "oh it looks like this question has been open for a while, so we are going to mark it answered". There are a LOT of people who are looking for this solution and when you close the question WITHOUT a solution you are basically saying "your needs are not important". I like this platform and am happy to use it, but it is somewhat disheartening that you close these questions without working toward an answer for your customers.
