I've assigned dates to all my assignments but only two of them are showing in the grade book. What am I doing wrong?
Celia, first, make sure that all of the assignments are of the graded type and have been published (see How do I use the Gradebook? and How do I use Draft State in Assignments? ). Second, make sure that none of the assignments reside in unpublished modules, because the module status will override the item status.
Check those things, and please come back to let us know the result.
Thanks for the response!
All of my assignments show a green checked cloud (published), and all my modules show published as well. In addition each assignment has point value listed next to it showing what the assignment is worth.
What am I doing wrong?
Sorry to be a bother.....
If you need to look at my acct I can send you the log-in so you can see what is going on.
Celia, the users here in the Canvas Community don't have access to schools' accounts, so if you want someone to look directly at the assignments and Gradebook in your course, your next step will be to open a support case (click on the Help icon that appears at the lower left of your Canvas screen, then select Report a Problem from the list of options). Without being able to look at your course, the only other remedy I can think of is that perhaps you're using weighted assignment groups to calculate the course grade..in which case you should double-check your grading scheme (by navigating to the Assignments tab) to make sure that all of the assignments have been dragged and dropped into their appropriate groups. I don't think that should matter, though, and I think you'll have better luck at this point working on the case directly with Canvas Support.
Which of your two course are you referring to? If it is the one you have been working in most recently, only two of the assignments are currently published:
It's the Latin IV class and yes, only two assignments are showing although I have given dates to all the assignments for my summer session and made sure that they are published. any ideas?
Do you see how in the screenshot the two assignments have green clouds with checks and the rest have gray clouds with Xs? The gray cloudy ones are not published. Check on the cloud to change the state. I did the Underworld assignment for you as an example.
You are being so incredibly nice and helpful....I really appreciate it.
I am unable to see the screenshot that you are talking about and when I look at my screen all of my assignments show green clouds with checks....this view I speak of is from the module tab.
Should I access the assignments from elsewhere?
No problem at all. We'll get there! If you look at your modules, everything in them is published, which is all fine and good. But if you click on the Assignments tab you will see that there are several assignments in the "Imported Assignments" assignment group. Most of them are not published but the three that are are the items currently displaying in your gradebook. If you look in modules or in the Quizzes tab you can see that you have a host of quizzes and that they are published. However, the type of your quizzes is currently set to "Practice Quiz" which is why they are not currently displaying in the gradebook. If you go to Quizzes and then edit each quiz you can set them to be something gradable such as "Graded Quiz."
Scott Dennis.....YOU ARE THE BEST!!!!!!!!! Thanks and have a great weekend I will be working on changing my quizzes to "graded"
