Exported Grade Format Not Consistent With Displayed Canvas Gradebook Grade Format

Exported Grade Format Not Consistent With Displayed Canvas Gradebook Grade Format

0 Kudos

Using "Enter Grades as" I deliberately specified that Gradebook scores be displayed as percentages. But exported Excel csv file has the grades in their original raw data format. My grading process requires that the exported Excel cvs file and the Canvas Gradebook use the same format. For example if a homework assignment was out of a raw score of 45 and a student got a score of 33 (= 73.33%) then Canvas Gradebook shows 73.33% but exported Excel cvs file shows 33. I would like the Excel csv file to also show 73.33%.

I deliberately want Canvas Grades to be in percents because students may be disoriented that they got a score of 73.33% on their Pearson's MyMathLab homework but their Canvas displayed score is 33 which may be misinterpreted as 33%.

Yes an email at the beginning of the semester telling the students that their Canvas Gradebook scores are in raw data format could resolve student grade concerns but past experience shows that some students either do not read their email or after a few weeks forget what they read.
