How do I view my grades in a current subject?

This lesson applies to users at institutions that have enabled the Canvas for Elementary user interface.

The Grades page in a course displays all current grades for all course assignments. You can also view scoring details, comments, and rubrics. If your institution has enabled grading periods, you can also filter grades by grading period.

If you have any courses that have concluded and are able to access their content, you can view those grades from any active course. You can also view concluded course grades from the Global Navigation Menu.

Note: Some details in the Grades page, such as scoring details and the total grade, may be restricted in your course.

If your institution has enabled grading periods, you can view your grades according to grading period. By default the Grades page displays the current grading period [1]. If an assignment does not include a due date, it will display as a part of the last grading period.

If your course includes weighted assignment groups, assignment groups may vary depending on which grading period you are viewing. An assignment group displays if the group has at least one assignment due in the selected grading period.

When grading periods are weighted and you select the All Grading Periods option [2], the weights of each grading period display.

View Assignment Groups

View Assignment Groups

Note: Assignment group percentages may be restricted by your instructor.
