How do I curve grades in the Gradebook? 

 

I have found the curve grades features in my gradebook and I was interested in knowing how it works. I read the documentation in the link above but I have just one question; can students see that their grades have been curved by a certain percentage or # of points? Or, do they just see the final outcome? I allow canvas to show the students what they've missed on assignments so I'm wondering if they'll be able to detect the change in score. I ask because, I want to know if I curve grades by a different amount in one class vs another, there will be complaints and I want to avoid complaints!

 

Thank you!

I hope this makes sense.
