Does the "Score Details" box calculations include the grades from the students that did not complete the assignment? In other words are the 0s calculated into the mean?
If you have given zero's to students who have not submitted assignments, then yes, the score details will include the zeros in the mean. Canvas doesn't know that the zeros are because the student didn't complete the assignment. I've actually given students a score of zero on assignments they've turned in, so in that case I would want the zero to count in the mean.
Is there anyway to remove the "Score Details" scale so that the student's cannot see where they fall within the scoring? Thanks!
Yes, that's an option under course Settings. See the following guide for directions - How do I hide the box and whisker plot (grade distribution) graphs from students?
