If I add each homework assignment under the HOMEWORK section under ASSIGNMENTS will I be able to grade the assignment in that section? It doesn't show a "to be graded" function.
Amanda, just to make sure I'm understanding, you've got an Assignment Group named "Homework" on your Assignments page? You would like to add assignments under that Assignment Group (Homework) and be able to grade it? If this is correct, then you would want to make sure that when you create your assignments you set the "Display Grade as" to something other than "not graded," so for example "points." You would also want to make sure you set the number of points and submission type as needed for your assignment. See the following guide for more information and directions on this - How do I add or edit details in an assignment?
When you go to actually enter grades you would either go to the Grades link on the left in your course (this would be for assignments/work done in class on paper) or to the specific assignment and click on the Speedgrader option (this is normally used for assignments that the student submitted in Canvas). Here are two guides that should help better explain this as well - How do I use the Gradebook? & What is SpeedGrader?
Hope this helps, but if not let me know and provide some more details about what you're trying to do and I'll be happy to provide more assistance!
