Is there a way to insert deductions in the final grade?
In the class I am teaching each unexcused absence must deduct a percentage of the final grade. I would like to make this process automatic through Canvas.
I thought of that, but I am not sure it would work.
The class has several groups of assignments and exams, with different weights; so weighting this negative grades would be confusing.
The calculations from Roll Call are also different from the ones we need at this class.
Maybe there is not a way to do that, so we will insert the deductions only in the last moment, when giving the final grades to the University System.
Thanks for your help.
You could create an assignment worth 0 points, and give them negative points on that assignment for their absences. Or if you're using Roll Call to track attendance, you could account for it that way.
