Students viewing grades

Jump to solution

Can students automatically see their grades in gradebook, or do I need to publish/grant permission?

Hi  @chris21  and welcome to the Canvas Community!  By default students would be able to see grades that you post in Canvas.  In my testing, if the Grades tab is hidden from students then they would not see this tab and accessing their grades may be difficult, but the default is that this tab is visible.  This document explains editing the course navigation tabs, https://community.canvaslms.com/docs/DOC-12933 .  You would also want to be sure that the assignment is not muted (see How do I mute or unmute an assignment in the Gradebook?).  While an assignment is muted students cannot see their score.

I hope this helps and best wishes!
