Accessing the current user's grades

Hi fellow developers!


I'm new to the canvas platform, but excited to get started. I am awaiting a response from the admins about getting an API token, and in the meantime have been poking around in the console while logged in (I'm a student, so I am running these commands while signed into my student account where I have active classes).


I'm interested in getting the current student's grade on a particular assignment. I tried this command:


$.getJSON("/api/v1/courses/<course id>/assignments/<assignmend id>/submissions", function(data) { console.log(data); });


But I got a 401 unauthorized return status. Do I need to have an API token to run this, or am I missing something else? I can fetch my classes and assignments just fine through the console.
