New HS enrollees transferring from other schools mid-semester usually arrive with transfer credits. Aeries can automatically apply proportional scores to all previous assignments in order to incorporate transfer credit, but in Canvas the teacher of the course must manually calculate each score and entered it into each equivalent assignment. This is incredibly tedious for a process that could be easily automated.
For example: John Smith is a new student arriving from another school who earned a 72.6% up to this point in Geometry at his previous school. He needs to be issued credit for all of *my* previous assignments to reflect this credit earned. I must enter 7.26 for each 10 point assignment, 10.89 for each 15 point assignment, 36.3 for each 50 point assignment, and so on, and a comment added on each assignment that the score is earned due to transfer credit.
