Our previous LMS would tell students where they ranked compared to all students in the course, and I would like to do this in Canvas. I'm not looking to share scores, simply a number, so students understand where they stand either overall or on a particular assignment. This is beneficial in circumstances where students claim "everyone failed" when they underperformed on an exam, for example. I had a way to show students not everyone is failing without sharing any other student information and show them they were struggling with the material more than most if they have a rank, that is, say 86/90. This is especially helpful when explaining they should visit office hours for more help, attend tutoring offered, spend more time studying the materials, etc.
I realize this may not be everyone's cup of tea, so having it be an option for us to "turn on" if we would like to use it would be nice.
