Hide number grade/percentage in grading?

Jump to solution

Dear,

We have some questions on grading. When selecting the option to provide letter grades to students, on all levels percentages and number grades keep showing up:

- in the gradebook (how can we hide the percentage and number grades in the all columns? Only letter grades should be visible)

- in the rubric (how can we hide the pts in the ratings?)

Thanks for your feedback!

Kind Regards,

Luc

 @spowell , you're right, as of now there's not a way to accomplish what you're seeking. The good news is that there is a page elsewhere in the Canvas Community -- within Canvas Studio‌, which houses feature ideas -- which points toward possible future interest in having the Canvas gradebook do what many institutions need:

 @luc_vancauwenbe ‌, from previous experience (and I just tested it again) there is no way to just have a letter grade show up, at least not on the front end of Canvas. There might be a way to use some custom global javascript to hide the numbers, but that would need to be done on the back end of Canvas.

For rubrics, the only way to hide the points from students is to not use points (so make each criterion worth zero points).

Sorry that these aren't the answers you're looking for, but I hope it helps.

This has been a big frustration for me too. I used instructor-created columns in D2L to get around this, and have just given up in Canvas. But I put up a text field request here... just kind of hoping. 🙂

Please consider adding your vote and comments to a related idea, currently in Product Radar, about the ability to configure how a grade is displayed to students:

While the title of that idea seems narrow (might not apply to a specific assignment), the Product manager for grading mentions a fit between it and a potential project to improve grading schemes generally. I believe that giving instructors a choice of how grades are displayed to students will ultimately promote more use of the gradebook and Speedgrader in Canvas.

Thank you,  @RobDitto ‌ ... I find it so hard to keep track of the feature requests (it's pretty chaotic), but grade schemes, while not exactly the solution I am looking for, would be a step forward anyway. I voted on that; thanks so much for pointing it out.

Please don't consider this question answered. So far as I can see, it is still not possible for any grade in the grade book to display as a letter only. There are still numerical and percentage displays that I can't eliminate regardless of the applied schema.

Just because you don't like the answer doesn't mean that it isn't the answer.
