How do I add and change the grade book
Hi Joelynn Marconi Welcome to the worldwide Canvas Community and thanks for your question. Your question is a bit broad in nature because there is lot of information to cover on using the Gradebook. Additionally, there is both an "old"/current gradebook and--depending on whether your institution enabled it or made it an option--a new gradebook!
The main thing to realize is that there is no need to create one; it is automatically part of every Canvas course via the Grades menu item. The second thing to realize is that the gradebook gets "populated" with columns automatically based on your assignments, graded discussions, and graded online quizzes. One cannot add a column in the gradebook on one's own, other than a notes column.
I first suggest you start with this page--assuming you are using the current/traditional gradebook: How do I use the Gradebook? and simply advance on to the next lesson following the prompts at the bottom of the page. If you prefer videos, instead, there is an excellent video overview here: Gradebook Overview (Instructors) .
I hope this provides a start, Joelynn. If you have more specific questions, ask away.
