How to add extra credit points? Getting errors in my grade audit for July/Aug term.
Hello there, Marcia McLane Thank You for posting your question. Please take a look at the following Guide to see if it might help answer some of your questions: How do I give extra credit in a course?
Wouldn't most of these cause the same problem in the grade audit as when I used the first option, as I always have in the past. The grade audit would not allow me to submit or sync until I made sure the points the student received was not over the 0 points set for the assignment.
I ended up adding extra points to students' other assignments, but I don't like to do it that way.
By chance, are you using a 3rd-party tool of some kind to sync grades? If this is the case, it sounds like you may need to contact that product vendor as this may not be a Canvas issue or something we could help with. This was recommended to me by my friend, Kelley L. Meeusen.
It’s possible that DeVry University’s grade audit is a 3rd party tool. Thank you.
Unfortunately, if one follows the first option on the guide (assigning 0 points possible for the assignment and then adding your extra credit points for the grade) is not allowable according to the grade audit tool when when submitting or syncing our grades. I got error messages that there were 12 people with points over 0 for the assignment. Following the guide's instructions for 0 points possible and then adding points to the grade actually does work for the final grade, however, it is not permitted in the grade audit. You cannot sync your grades without correcting the "error."
