Canvas white logo

This change is noted in  Canvas Deploy Notes (2020-08-12)

Description

 

When using weighted assignment groups in a course, deleting an assignment group and moving assignments into another group upon deletion can cause stale grades in the enrollments API, gradebook exports, and Grade Export report.

 

Expected Behavior

 

Grades should update when assignments are moved into another assignment group upon assignment group deletion.

 

Steps to Reproduce

 

  1. In a course, create multiple weighted assignment groups and add assignments to each group
  2. Grade all assignments for a student
  3. On the assignments page, select the option to delete one of the assignment groups
  4. Select to move assignments in that group to another assignment group
  5. Navigate to the gradebook. Notice that the total score has updated
  6. Access the enrollments API. Notice that the current score does not match the gradebook total
