Is there a way to add a total points available column?
Hi Erin and welcome to the community.
As far as I know there is no built in way in Canvas to have a total points available column show in the teacher gradebook. You can turn on the total so it shows up as points by using the little drop down arrow in the header of the total column but it doesn't show the total points, only shows the total so far. You can read about this at: How do I view my students' total grades as a point value instead of a percentage in the Gradebook?
Now on the student side, if you have points turned on, they do appear to see the points out of the total. It looks like you will just have to add up all the individual points to make sure it is 1000 or take a look at the student gradebook. I am sure if there is another way to do this, one of our other community members will give us a hand.
Thank you! I wanted to make sure it was not user error on my part. I appreciate your help. I found out I can also download the CSV and highlight all the points in order to find the total sum to make sure I have the correct number of points assigned.
