I'm new to Canvas. Why are the final grade percentages over 100%?
Thanks in advance
Hi Kathleen Shannon , and Welcome to the Canvas Community!
Without seeing your gradebook, this can be hard to diagnose, but the likely causes could be..........
There really can be many causes. My partner and I recently spent about an hour with a faculty member with a similar problem. The way to approach this is to find a student with 100%+, then go to their individual grade view and scroll down that page looking for inconsistencies. Eliminate the inconsistencies, and you will eliminate the problem.
If you are still having trouble, provide a screenshot of an individual grade report (blank out the student name), and we can take a look and see what we find.
That can happen if you have an assignment scored out of 0 points with a non-zero score entered. Go through your gradebook or assignments to double check.
The other cause could be Assignment Group weights totaling more than 100%. Check your assignment list and make sure your group weights sum correctly.
