Having to grade the Test Student every week bugs me. Can I remove him from the course or at least get him out of the grade book? I tried "reset student view" but that didn't do it.
Hi David VanDenburgh...
I'm not sure if you'll be able to do this as an instructor...so if you can't, please reach out to an admin at your school who works with Canvas on a daily basis. In order to remove the "Test Student" from the Gradebook, go to Settings, and then click on the Sections tab. Next, click on the section number that is listed under the Course Sections heading. Under the Current Enrollments heading, you should see Student, Test with a really long string of characters (numbers and letters). This is the "Test Student" that you will want to remove. Move your mouse over this account, and there should be a red "X" for you to click on to remove it. (Again, if you don't see this, speak to an admin at your school.) Be aware, though, that if you ever use the Student View button (via Settings) again, this will show back up, and you'd have to remove it if you don't want to see it any more.
Hope this helps, David!
Stefanie, that worked. Thank you.
Do we need to put this into the Canvas Guide? (I searched everyone and couldn’t find a way to do it, but maybe everyone else already knows.)

David, it's written up here: How do I view a course using a test student?
