May I eliminate the TOTAL GRADE and disply just the  COMPLETED average?

           In my first semester using Canvas,  I've found that the TOTAL GRADE calculation offers nothing but confusion for students.  Once Assignments are published, they are automatically graded as a %0, reducing the student's TOTAL GRADE before they have even submitted their work.


       I'm very please that the COMPLETED GRADE average has been implemented so the displayed average is a student's CURRENT average.    Is there any means of eliminating the TOTAL GRADE altogether and displaying just the COMPLETED GRADE average?    I do not wish to prevent displaying final grades altogether,   but I hope to ONLY present the COMPLETED grade - the current grade for the student's work thus far.


          Thanks very much,
