I have some questions about dual credit and grades. Are there any other higher education institutions that offer dual credit courses to high schools? Are they using your instance of Canvas?
Hi Shandy Beck
We have a strong Running Start program (complete HS and AS) on our campus, along with two high schools; all of which off dual-credit and use Canvas.
Kelley L. Meeusen, I have a dual credit instructor that has been putting the student grades in Canvas, and in their SIS (Tyler). Tyler is averaging the first and the second semester grades to return the overall grade, while Canvas is running the student grade over the entire year. At the end, the instructor says there is a discrepancy for some students. I wondering if we need to look more into the grading period. Have you run into this? Do you use the grading period feature?
I am not sure how much help I can give you, as our system works differently.
Shandy, we do Dual Credit and they use Canvas and also enter in the grades into their SIS. We've been doing this for almost six years and haven't run into the issue you're describing. Sorry to not be more help.
Thanks, Kona! Do your courses run the entire K12 academic year?
Some do, but some don't. Just depends on the type of course.
