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,
