"Send To" feature: Imports grade policies from another instructor

Jump to solution

We've come across an interesting issue for teachers who are sending content to each other. Our science department has gotten into the practice of sending content (assignments, quizzes) to each other. They've found that when they import the content they've been sent by a colleague, that colleague's grading policies come with it, overriding their current grading policies! 

EX: The sending colleague has a late policy that deducts 40% per day until 60%. When the receiving colleague imported one quiz that she sent him, it modified his grade book to adopt her late work policy. He only found out because his students started emailing him asking why their grades had changed.

Has anyone else seen this? Is there a remedy? 

We will most likely recommend that the department set up shell courses for their subjects so that they can all import content directly from those, but wondered if anyone else had seen this specific problem.

If this is something that is not working correctly, please encourage others to work with Support. That will be the best way for Instructure to create a better understanding of what needs to be addressed.

@AshleyWeaver and @SusanNiemeyer - I heard that this was recently identified and addressed. Do you have a sandbox to verify?

Hi @erin_dickey - I can see this being confusing for everyone involved in the collaborative process. Have you collaborated with Canvas Support? I wonder if this behaving as designed/intended. Once you hear back, it would be awesome to hear what you learned.

How do I get help with Canvas as an instructor?

This is a glitch in Canvas. I'm a member of the :FB group "Teachers Using :Canvas," and other instructors have reported this problem.

I really wish that the Canvas developers would just fix known errors like this one.

Hi,

Do you know if the grading policies carry over for everything? For example, we see grading policies carry over for modules - what if a teacher only shares an assignment with another teacher - does the grading policy carry over as well?

Thanks all.

@AshleyWeaver - we definitely have seen this with the assignment level... ☹️
