How do I check my What-if Grades in the Student app on my Android device?

Find your school's Canvas URL

To find your school or institution's Canvas URL, begin typing the name of your school/institution. Results will appear after you type at least 3 characters. For best results be as specific as possible. If you can't find your school, try using any part of your school's name or searching for your school district or state. You may also need to search for the school using the acronym or full name, for example "USU" and "Utah State University".

How do I check my What-if Grades in the Student app on my Android device?

You can view your grades based on What-If scores so that you know how grades will be affected by upcoming or resubmitted assignments.

The images in this lesson are shown for a phone display, but unless otherwise noted, tablet displays mirror the same steps.

Note: What-if grading is only available when a course does not use weighted grading periods. Additionally, what-if scores are not saved in the Canvas Student app.
