I have recently graded an assignment using Speedgrader. As usual, the grades appear in the gradebook when I look at it in my browser. However, when I export the gradebook as a .csv file, the column for that assignment is blank. Other previously graded assignments appear normally. Only the grades for the latest assignment are missing.
I believe my past assignments assigned to only one or a few students exported just fine. However, complete/incomplete always exports as an empty column. Did you assign a specific grade, or was this marked complete/incomplete?
They were assigned actual grades.
But the following day, the gradebook exported just fine. I guess it took 24h for the system to realise that grades had been entered. This is somewhat disconcerting.
If anything, this is a reminder to always keep a personal record of grades that were entered and NEVER trust Canvas to do anything properly.
I'm glad it resolved itself. I generally only need exported grades as a last step at the end of the semester, but there is an option to download a previous export. Is it possible that you had a gradebook export in progress (or already complete) when you entered the grades?
I had exported grades at least two times before. At the time when I noticed this problem, I had no other exports in progress and hadn't exported grades in days. Previous exports had long since been completed.
That is odd. I can't think of a reason why the gradebook would need time to recognize it was displaying grades before it could export them. If it happens again, I would contact canvas support so they can document the source of the delay.
