"Missing/Late" Labels in Gradebook Woes

Jump to solution

Each of the following questions could lead to teacher efficiencies, as well as less likelihood of improper labeling in regards to grade posting:

  1. It would be great if when a grade is entered in a gradebook that the "missing" label of pink (default color) would automatically be removed once something is inputted into the cell instead of the instructor needing to do 4 more clicks to remove the label. Is this possible through some setting? (We do see the benefit of using the labels for our students)
  2. It would be awesome if a teacher could manually type in a code (M=Missing or E=Excused) and choose the label for Late if an assignment is turned in and a grade needs to be recorded. This would remove the 4 extra steps when manually entering these designations in the gradebook. Is this a possibility?

Hi Julie!  I like your ideas!  I am sure this would be considered a feature request and you would have to formally create that to get it moving into the voting process.  Here is a document that shows you how to do that!  https://community.canvaslms.com/docs/DOC-14904

Hi julieddavis...

In addition to the helpful information that  @BStutzman  provided, I wanted to share a link to a "Canvancement" (Canvas Enhancement) created by  @James ‌ that may be of interest to you: Removing Missing and Late Labels.  This is something that is not part of the "Core" Canvas product, but you can read through James' documentation to see how it works and how you can use it in your own courses right now...if you want.  I hope this extra resource will be of help to you, Julie!

Thanks Chris, I did see this link but we see the benefit in using the

missing and late because we also use AspireEDU dropout detective with

Canvas and these labels give us valuable feedback when looking for patterns

with struggling students. I appreciate you pointing it out though!
