When I use the speed grader and the assignment is worth 5 points, if I type in 4 as the answer, it changes this to a percentage of 100. So instead of receiving 4/5 or 80%, typing in 4 gives the student a 4% or 0.2/5. Help.
Hi Chris Hellums Welcome to the worldwide Canvas Community! I was just helping one of my own faculty members with this very issue late last week. This is caused by the assignment itself not being set to points but rather having the Display grade as drop-down menu set to percentage. The solution is to head back to the original assignment on the ASSIGNMENTS menu page and see what Display grade as is set to. I'm about 99% certain you will see that it is set to percentage. Change it to POINTS and that should solve the immediate issue. However, your NEXT step might be that you will have to change the grades yet again to the proper point value if Canvas changes what used to be a percentage to 0.2 points. (Which it may!) You may want to mute the assignment before doing this so that students don't get even more confused until you are finished fixing the grades and then unmute it once you are satisfied with the final grade.
Hope this helps a bit!
