I just took a quiz in my humanities class on Canvas and after I received my grade of 90% it blurred it out and said the assignment has been dropped? Why did my grade get dropped?
Hello Courtney McMurtry Welcome to the worldwide Canvas Community! You posted this question to the Canvas Community, so we do not have the ability to see your course site. Your question is probably best directed to your instructor (Help>>Ask Your Instructor a Question), but I think I may be able to give you the most likely reason why this occurred. Your instructor can create "rules" for assignment groups in Canvas, and this will happen (immediately, as you saw!) if the instructor has created a rule to drop the lowest score from an assignment group. In fact, an instructor can choose to drop as many scores as s/he likes within an Assignment group.
To see this, click on the Assignments menu item (assuming your instructor has it enabled), and then, in the upper-right corner of the screen, click on the button labeled Type, as shown below:
That will arrange the assignments by the type of assignment rather than the default arrangement of date. Furthermore, you may see--as the screen capture above shows--that there is a "rule." If you hover your mouse over that icon, it will tell you what the instructor-created rule is for that assignment type.
So, my hunch is that you did better than 90% on a different assignment that is in whichever group that quiz happens to be a member of.
I hope this helps a bit, Courtney!
