Multiple Grading Schemes


Many of our courses allow a student to take the course as a letter grade or P/F.  Currently, we have no way to account for this in the Canvas gradebook since every letter requires a percentage attached to it.  Likewise, we would like a way to override a student's grade with an Incomplete without assigning it to a percentage.

Canvas needs a way to layer in multiple grading schemes and then teachers can specify which grading scheme each student gets.

This is essential for high school students with special education/ 504 accommodations.

We need a pass/fail option! 

Multiple grading schemes would be GREAT!

In K-12, the ability to apply multiple grading schemes allows us to accommodate required modified grading for a student in a classroom. Our SIS, Synergy, provides this option through "Final Score Config" which can be set at the student level. A similar option in Canvas is a must. I hope this need gets some attention.

This is an essential feature that we need to appropriately serve our students with special services or 504 accommodations.  Currently, to override the grade per their IEP/504, it forces the percentage change as well, so we are not as accurately sharing grade data with students and families.

Yes.  Currently a student with a P shows at 0.15%?  This is not fair to them and does not directly display their true level of achievement.  

We should have the ability to enter a P and still have their true percentage show.
