About the new Canvas Gradebook

On this page:


Overview

In fall 2017, Instructure introduced a redesigned Gradebook for Canvas with many new features. The new Gradebook is now the default in all Canvas course sites at Indiana University, and the legacy Canvas Gradebook has been permanently disabled.

Changes in the new Gradebook

Almost all of the features available in the current Canvas Gradebook are available in the new Gradebook, but some have been moved to new locations within the Gradebook interface. For detailed information on the new user interface and all of the features available in the new Gradebook, see New Gradebook Guide.

New features

The new Canvas Gradebook includes many features designed to improve the grading experience, especially in classes with large numbers of students and/or assignments. In the new Gradebook, you can:

  • Sort assignment columns by their order in modules
  • Filter assignments by assignment group and/or by module.
    Note:
    Filters remain in effect until the filters are reset to All Assignment Groups and/or All Modules.
  • Set custom colors for specific submission and grading statuses, including: late, missing, resubmitted, dropped (via assignment group rules), and excused
  • Sort the data in any gradebook column by missing or late status
  • Toggle between entering and viewing grades as points or as percentage values
  • View or hide unpublished assignments
  • Automatically apply grading rules to late and missing submissions
  • Manually adjust submission status to none, late, missing, or excused
  • Override the calculated final grade; see Override the final course grade in Canvas
