Absent Grade Status

Jump to solution

Currently, we cannot add or change the Statuses available. With that said, I could really use an Absent Status being added. 

Students who are absent would still need to complete their work and it could count as a 0 until submitted, per teachers discretion of course, but they should not have a penalty like those who just submit Late.

Late is late ...they neglected to submit on time.

Absent is you were not present for the lesson and might need extra time to work on the assignment.

Can Absent be added with the option of how to treat the status? I know our students have 3 days to submit the work per our Student Handbook even though teachers are more generous with the 3 days.

Hi @TampaNative 

While Canvas does not currently have that capability, I do note that there is an Idea Conversation in this community that appears to be just what you are asking for. View it at Absent Status. Check it out, and rate as you deem appropriate.

Good luck,

Kelley
