How do I create individual columns in the "Grades" section for separate totals for exams, discussions, assignments, and a grand total?
Hi Walter Stevens , and Welcome to the Canvas Community!
I suspect you are an awesome teacher, seeing as how you are investigating your new LMS on Independence Day; and I hope that, beyond working, you had a great 4th!
What you are asking about can be done by using Assignment Groups. Create an Assignment Group for each of the categories you listed (and more), and then place the appropriate graded activities in their appropriate groups. Canvas will then place a subtotal column in the gradebook for each group. You can eve apply weights to each group and other options.
