Hi, jim.lambert@mvc.edu Welcome to the Canvas Community!

Does an instructor need to add zeros in the gradebook to accurately reflect missing assignments?

Yes. The quickest way to do this is by using the Set Default Grade feature. Depending on which gradebook you're currently using, here are the instructions:

How do I set a default grade for an assignment?

If you've already graded all of the submissions, make sure not to enable the Overwrite already-entered grades checkbox during this process.

Hi

I also like to use a Missing Submission Policy to catch the missing assignments after the due date.I set it to 0% and let Canvas take care of the rest.

Hope this guide is helpful,

I do what ishar-uw‌ does. Just be aware this doesn't work on external LTI assignments like New Quizzes. I think it also doesn't work for "On Paper" or "No submission" assignments. It's pretty easy to check if it worked--just scan the gradebook and look for dashes. If there's a dash, Canvas won't count that for or against the student's grade, and it'll need to manually be changed to a 0.
