The course I am teaching has multiple sections. How do I merge them all together so all the students are on the same page in gradebook?
NANCY, greetings! The only way to merge all of your sections together so they are on the same page in the gradebook would be to literally combine all of your sections into one course in Canvas. If you are ok with this, then see the following directions - How do I cross-list a section in a course as an instructor? If you aren't able to do this, then it's possible that the Canvas Admins at your school will need to do this for you.
Hope this helps!
Hello, Unfortunately the "How do I cross-list a section..." information is either out of date or we don't have this method available to our college in Canvas. Two colleagues asked me to help them with this at the beginning of the semester this year, since I figured it out last year for all of us. I wrote up a simple step-by-step guide for them and they suggested I share it with the community. I will do that below. First I would like to comment I have found that combining all my sections in Canvas is perfectly fine, since I can look at one section at a time in the gradebook when I want to enter information or view it for one section only. If I don't require students in one section to complete some assignment(s), I enter EX (excused) in the grade box so it will not count for them in the final point total.
Here is the step-by-step:
