"Set a Default Grade For Students Who..."

"Set a Default Grade For Students Who..."

(20)
This idea has been developed and deployed to Canvas

I would like to add an option to the "Set Default Grade" feature to differentiate between those that have submitted an assignment vs. those that have not submitted the assignment. Similar to how I can "Message Students Who...", I would like to add the option to "Set a Default Grade For Students Who..."

 

My choices might be:

  • "Haven't Submitted Yet"
  • "Have Submitted"
  • "All Students"
  • "Haven't Been Graded Yet"

 

As it stands, I typically use the "Set Default Grade" function for 0's, but what that means is that I have to grade all the submissions before I can apply the 0to the students that have not completed the assignment. I would like to be able to more efficiently apply the 0's to spur action from the students that have not submitted the assignment.

Perhaps another choice could be "Submitted the assignment late"

Hey All! We have designs that solve this problem in the future. I'm not sure exactly when this new work will make it into production, so I'm moving it into Under Consideration.

This idea was moved from Under Consideration stage (no longer in use) to the Product Radar stage.  

This change was made as part of a feature idea process evolution.  Find more information, and contribute insights, by joining Focus Group: DRAFT Feature Idea Space

Would love this feature to ALSO include set default grade AND set grade comment for students who...   This would enable you to update grade comments for a subset of students on simple assignments without having to update them one at a time.

I would like the ability to have a comment field so you can set the default grade and enter a default comment that the instructor can create/edit. For example, I might want to include something like "did not submit assignment, please submit within 36 hours to earn a grade for this assignment" or anything I choose up to a x amount of characters say 500

What is the ETA on this feature?

How can we be added as a power user/test user/ focus group user?

The Radar idea stage has been removed from the Feature Idea Process.  You can read more about why in the blog post Adaptation: Feature Idea Process Changes.

 

This change will only impact the stage sort of this idea and will not change how it is voted on or how it is considered during prioritization activities.  This change will streamline the list of ideas 'open for voting', making it easier for you to see the true top voted ideas in one sort, here.

So...I take it those designs didn't work out, seeing as it's over 2 years later?

That is correct.  Sorry, sometimes things aren't as easy as we hope they are.

We are badly in need of this feature. We have one person grading 5,000 students weekly. It seems crazy that this is not a feature. How can we help make this happen?!?!?!?

The amount of time we spend on the grades in canvas is unreal.  This feature would be tremendously helpful to us and I hope it will be seriously considered.

Is this feature still in process? If not, please reconsider it as a priority. It's a feature our instructional team is still greatly in need of ...

I agree. This would make life much easier for large courses - the amount of time this would save is staggering.

I'll add another voice to the mix on this one. I have assignments for an anatomy lab that I've built in New Quizzes that I'd prefer to grade as all-or-none. If the student submits the assignment, even if they get some questions wrong, I want Canvas to award full points. Changing the quiz setting to "complete/incomplete" isn't a viable workaround, as any submissions that are complete but contain incorrect answers are just marked as "ungraded" in the gradebook, so we'd still need to go in and award credit.

So far, the only way I can see to do this is to set a default grade, overwrite all scores with full points, and then go back in and replace the scores for students who didn't submit with zeroes. It's not great and just makes more work for me and the other instructors. Giving an option to set an all-or-none score for those students who submitted on time would be huge.

I would like to see Canvas add a feature in the gradebook that allows for teachers to give students a specific grade/point value based on where they are at in having submitted the assignment. Currently, the Canvas gradebook only allows for teachers to give all students a "default grade," but does not differentiate whether a student has submitted an assignment or not. Canvas Quizziz works okay for this same purpose, but I would like to see this featured broadened.
