How can I allow my students to enter "what if" grades? Or see what their grade would be like after the lowest quiz grade is dropped?
Hi Carelys Kenney Welcome to the Canvas Community. Good news....no setup required! Students can do this automatically via the Grades menu item on their own. There are instructions here from the student's perspective: How do I approximate my assignment scores using the What-If Grades feature in the New Gradebook? (And even if you are not using the New Gradebook yet at your institution, it works in the current/"old" gradebook, as well.)
There is one thing you will have to do, however....and that's setup whichever assignment grouping your quizzes are in so that the lowest grade IS, in fact, dropped. There are instructions for doing this here: How do I create rules for an assignment group?
I hope this helps, Carelys!
