Sheri Prupis
47:33
we will create an FAQ after this session to address your questions. let Johnna go through our agenda
Durham, Page E.
48:41
Many of you are already using the New Gradebook.
Casey Sato
48:54
FYI, several of your institutions are already using the New Gradebook.
Robert Konikoff
50:13
mINE IS forced on, too
Karan Deengar
50:19
Does the new gradebook kick in even after you have cloned your old Canvas shell?
Durham, Page E.
50:29
Yes, Robert that may the case.
Terri Milroy
50:33
Many of your LMS admins have New Gradebook forced on because of the upcoming change over
Durham, Page E.
50:50
Yes, Karan it will be the default for all courses starting in January.
Robert Konikoff
51:00
If there is a different behavior, it would have been nice to get advanced notice.
Robert Konikoff
51:29
Of course, I may not be using the features to make a difference. Good question for my EdTech team (they're GREAT, by the way!)
Terri Milroy
51:37
Robert, we just found out recently. That’s why we wanted to offer this training
Durham, Page E.
52:05
Robert, if you already have it turned on, you will not see a change.
Casey Sato
52:31
If you are using the old gradebook, there is currently an announcement/warning notifying you of the permeant change to the new gradebook when you are in your course gradebook.
Pengfei on computer
53:28
How are grades predicted in the middle of the semester using weighted grading. if a group has not been submitted, does it count as zeros?
Terri Milroy
54:03
If there are no grades, the total is averaged without that category
Durham, Page E.
54:46
Pengfei, they are not counted as zeros until you assign them a grade or use a Grading policy.
Pengfei on computer
55:43
got it, thank you!
Vance, Jason A
56:03
Thanks Page and Terri. Pengfei, basically the gradebook is a running total.
Pengfei on computer
56:05
so until the end of the semester, the grade is not weighted.
Casey Sato
56:20
https://community.canvaslms.com/docs/DOC-10059-415267002
Robert Konikoff
56:20
If we use default grades of 0 for all assignments, will that include the missing assignments in the grade calculation? That gives a more accurate overall grade for the semester as opposed to the current grade in progress.
Casey Sato
56:36
This guide is a helpful resource regarding weighted grades.
Terri Milroy
57:20
Pengfei, if the final is it’s own category or you have much outstanding til the end, you are correct
Casey Sato
57:48
Yes, Robert is correct.
Casey Sato
58:30
Johnna will be going over policies that can also assist with this.
Robert Konikoff
58:42
Thanks, Casey
AbuZayda, Ihab A.
59:52
If I have multiple sections of the same course in Canvas, how can I manage them? Can I create one Canvas course instead of multiple?
Terri Milroy
01:00:23
Yes, your admin can collapse sections of the same course so you work in one shell only
AbuZayda, Ihab A.
01:00:41
Ok, thanks.
Janelle Marshall
01:00:57
That's great to know, Terri!
Terri Milroy
01:01:37
Yes, Janelle, you just need to have your admin do it. Best before the semester starts, so send a request if you want that done.
Martray
01:01:44
What is impact if you change weights and/or questions on a quiz after some students have already completed it?
brpaneh
01:01:47
In the above question, can I arrange students in gradebook based on class sections and not in alphabetic order?
Janelle Marshall
01:01:53
Will do!
Karan Deengar
01:02:29
Has the new gradebook by chance already kicked in for some instructors or institutions or is it redesign that doesn't roll out till January?
Terri Milroy
01:02:35
Martray, we aren’t really covering quizzes today. But you cannot change a quiz composition after some students have completed, I believe
Terri Milroy
01:03:04
Brpaneh you can go to individual view and look at students by section there
Robert Konikoff
01:03:15
If we manage multiple sections in one course, can we make adjustments to schedules of assignments etc independently by section?
Durham, Page E.
01:03:21
Karan what institution are you affiliated with?
Terri Milroy
01:03:22
Karan, many colleges have had new grade book on.
Martray
01:03:32
Understand that. What if you change weights of HWK, Quizzes, etc. in grade book?
Ann Clark
01:03:33
Can students also filter grade book
Vance, Jason A
01:03:36
Mortuary, you can change the weight, but not the total point possible. The system is not forgive on the latter part.
Terri Milroy
01:03:41
Robert, yes, you can change due dates and even assignments by section
Casey Sato
01:03:46
Robert, yes you can assign assignments by section
Terri Milroy
01:04:12
Martray, you can change weights at any point.
Casey Sato
01:04:32
Here is a guide Robert on how to do this: https://community.canvaslms.com/docs/DOC-10434-4152669141
Lisa
01:04:45
So, if you mark it drop, will it not calculate the grade?
Durham, Page E.
01:05:02
Yes, Lisa that is correct.
Lisa
01:05:15
Thank you
Martray
01:05:52
Drop vs OMIT?
Terri Milroy
01:06:23
Excused is OMIT
Robert Konikoff
01:06:31
Casey: That is perfect! Do we get to select manage multiple sections in Canvas or is that something we have to do with the administrator?
G. Wright
01:06:39
How doe we reset assignments?
Casey Sato
01:06:52
You will need to work with your administrator
Durham, Page E.
01:06:59
G, Wright. Are you talking about removing submissions?
G. Wright
01:07:20
Yes
Durham, Page E.
01:07:36
In Canvas, students can submit assignments as many times up until the due date. However, quizzes are different.
Pengfei on computer
01:07:45
I don't have the advanced button
G. Wright
01:08:02
How do you reset a quiz/test?
Terri Milroy
01:08:04
No one has the advanced button in VCCS
Janelle Marshall
01:08:10
Is there an option for an automatic comment as well for late submissions.
Vance, Jason A
01:08:13
Pengfei, are you in Google Chrome?
Pengfei on computer
01:08:22
yes, google chrome
Diane Wolff
01:08:47
I have been told that there is no way to reset a quiz/est
Terri Milroy
01:08:48
G. Wright you can moderate to give another submission attempt.
Janelle Marshall
01:08:48
Sorry...meant to say for missing submissions
Terri Milroy
01:09:09
Janelle, you will see some options.
Durham, Page E.
01:09:18
G. Wright. see this document https://community.canvaslms.com/docs/DOC-10038-4152101240
Diane Wolff
01:09:18
Can give more attempts but cannot clear old ones
Janelle Marshall
01:09:45
Great! Thanks, Terri!
G. Wright
01:10:02
Thanks
Durham, Page E.
01:10:24
Moderate Quiz information can be found here. https://community.canvaslms.com/docs/DOC-12711-4152276730
Durham, Page E.
01:10:50
G Wright Moderate quiz is also an option for quizzes.
Terri Milroy
01:10:57
Diane, you can always take highest score of multiple quiz attempts
Diane Wolff
01:11:27
Got it...but I want to totally remove previous submission when they want to put in a second one.
Casey Sato
01:13:36
Diane, unfortunately that is not a feature that is available.
Durham, Page E.
01:13:43
Diane. See this document https://community.canvaslms.com/docs/DOC-10152-415241475
Casey Sato
01:14:17
Diane, at least to remove an assignment submission
Bill McNamara
01:14:56
The overide feature is available, you have to turn it on in settings. I am currently using it. However I would like a means to add a comment in the override to explain why. Have not found a way to do it.
Diane Wolff
01:15:01
Thanks
Durham, Page E.
01:15:50
Bill. See if this is what you are wanting. https://community.canvaslms.com/docs/DOC-12746-415255023
Martray
01:16:58
best way to leverage Student Test in grade book?
evansa
01:17:06
I would like to combine two columns (e.g., lab photo 1+ lab quiz 1 = lab 1 total. How can I do this?
Durham, Page E.
01:17:30
Martray, I am not sure what you are asking.
Bill McNamara
01:17:38
I can add comments in individual assignments/test but cannot in the final grade column or override column. I will loook at this further after the webinar.
Gannon Nordberg - LFCC
01:17:42
@Evansa you might need to create a new assignment group in order to calculate that
Casey Sato
01:18:07
@bill, unfortunately this is not a feature that is available. I’ll share this idea with our product team.
Martray
01:18:20
Last row in Grade Book is student TEST. How do we use it?
evansa
01:18:44
Thanks! Just to clarify.. I want to be able to do this for each lab.
Casey Sato
01:18:44
@Evansa, agreed with Gannon, this is how you can best do this.
Durham, Page E.
01:19:28
Martray, That is a "Test Student" so that when you enter the course in student view you can complete your own quizzes as a student.
Jennifer @ DCC
01:19:33
The Test Student is a way to see the course how the students would see it.
brpaneh
01:19:36
can I get a mean grade, highest, and lowest grades in a class section? and the statistics of how many As, Bs, Cs..?
Casey Sato
01:19:45
@martray, this is the student/user in the course when the teacher uses the
evansa
01:19:47
Thanks, all.
Martray
01:19:51
Can we Delete a score on a specific quiz or Assignment?
Casey Sato
01:19:57
the student view in the course settings.
Casey Sato
01:20:15
@martray, this is the student/user in the course when the teacher uses the student view in the course settings.
Bill McNamara
01:20:16
Blackboard had an option to add a text field where we could have a column in which we could add comments or remarks. This would be nice to have.
Terri Milroy
01:20:50
There is a notes column, Bill. It’s only for you, not for students, however
Robert Konikoff
01:20:55
If I set default scores to 0 for external content, when that site (Cengage MindTap) synchs, will it override the 0?
Casey Sato
01:20:55
@bill Do you want that note to be visible to the student? or just to yourself/admins
AbuZayda, Ihab A.
01:20:56
how does excused affect the weighted assignments?
Bill McNamara
01:21:34
If I can makew the note box available to students that would serve the same purpose. How do I do it?
Casey Sato
01:21:55
@abuzayda, Johnna just answered that question.
Martray
01:21:55
Can we still delete and/or omit selected grades?
Terri Milroy
01:21:57
Bill, the note column is for instructors only at this time
Terri Milroy
01:22:18
Martray, you can excuse selected grades
Bill McNamara
01:22:34
thats is what I read in the video's. Hopefully they can make the note avail to students.
Casey Sato
01:22:48
@bill, I’ll share this idea with our product team.
evansa
01:28:15
Is there a way to drop the lowest score in a given category?
Vance, Jason A
01:28:45
@evansa..yes under Assignments.
Robert Konikoff
01:29:02
Is there a special indicator if I graded a submission and a student submits a second attempt?
Durham, Page E.
01:29:03
Evansa, Here you go. https://community.canvaslms.com/docs/DOC-9880-4152232976
evansa
01:29:28
Thanks!
Terri Milroy
01:29:55
Robert, you will just see the same page icon in the gradebook
Martray
01:30:12
I dropped lowest 2 grades in a class. One student who had a LOW grade went back & resubmitted to GET 100%. But it still dropped that grade?
Robert Konikoff
01:30:19
Will there be a dot or check by the name in the drop down?
Terri Milroy
01:30:58
She just answered, Robert
Robert Konikoff
01:31:26
So if there is a second submission, I'll get a dot back to indicate a new submission to be graded.
Beyer, Joressia A
01:31:34
Note. If you use a rubric and only grade part of the rubric, it will still be marked as graded.
Terri Milroy
01:31:40
Martray, it dropped another grade, or dropped the lowest two grades still?
Terri Milroy
01:31:51
Robert, yes
Robert Konikoff
01:31:59
Thanks, Terri!
Bill McNamara
01:32:15
In my syllabus I have a requirement that students must have a passing lab average and a passing test average to pass the class.In a spreadsheet I created a function to have the final grade display an “F” is either the labs or test have a failing average regardless of the final class average, which could be a passing grade if either one of the labs or tests items is high enough to overcome the failing item.The override feature allows me to now override the letter grade but no way to comment on why the override.
Beyer, Joressia A
01:32:22
Note: If you allow more than one attempt, if you grade the latest attempt, then Canvas will mark as graded and not inform you that previous attempts need graded.
Casey Sato
01:32:29
@robert here is a helpful guide: https://community.canvaslms.com/docs/DOC-13088-415255024
Gannon Nordberg - LFCC
01:32:42
Video & audio feedback is GREAT!
Martray
01:33:01
sTUDENT HAD 40% ON QUIZ, WHICH WAS DROPPED. hE WENT BACK & RETOOK TO IMPROVE TO 100% ON same quiz. His 100% grade was still dropped
Terri Milroy
01:33:12
Joressia, you are correct. If the latest submission is graded, you will not be notified about earlier submissions
Terri Milroy
01:34:02
Martray, I’m assuming the rule had already been set? You might want to show your LMS admin if that’s not the behavior you want in the gradebook
Martray
01:34:17
OK
Robert Konikoff
01:34:24
Terri: Is there a way to see the previously submitted assignment?
Casey Sato
01:34:26
Martey, you may want to reach out to Canvas support as well,
Durham, Page E.
01:34:32
Here is a Canvas Guide for adding annotations. https://community.canvaslms.com/docs/DOC-15081-4152719763
Terri Milroy
01:34:45
Robert, yes. In speed-reader, there is a drop down menu to see each submission
Casey Sato
01:34:57
Robert: In Speedgrader there is a dropdown. See the guide I sent you.
Terri Milroy
01:34:59
Speed grader
Robert Konikoff
01:35:06
Perfect - thanks, Terri - I've saved that link
Robert Konikoff
01:35:14
oops - Casey!
dbieszczad
01:35:15
I give all my exam in resondus. Is there a way to grade, for example, essay #1 of all students the grade essay 2 of all students in speed grader?
Durham, Page E.
01:36:39
There is not a way to currently grade a single question for all students at one time.
Gannon Nordberg - LFCC
01:37:50
How do I leave feedback comments for student submissions in SpeedGrader? https://community.canvaslms.com/docs/DOC-12746-415255023
Casey Sato
01:38:10
Speedgrader is currently being researched and reviewed by product, this is one of the enhancements that is being considered @dbeiszczad and @page
dbieszczad
01:38:29
Using Respondus what is the best way to allow students to view there graded tested in a SECURE protected way?
Beyer, Joressia A
01:38:54
It would be great to have the annotation tool on quizzes with file upload questions.
Casey Sato
01:39:31
@joresssia, I’ll share this feedback with product.
Terri Milroy
01:39:32
Toggling between submissions allows you to have students submit rough drafts and final drafts to the same place, and you can easily compare changes
Bill McNamara
01:39:32
I have to leave to give a final exam at 1:30pm. I want to say this was a great presentation and having access to the chats was helpful but could not keep up with both so I will save them and read them later. Thanks everyone for your questions and feedback. Bill McNamara TCC Virginia Beach
Angela Dickenson
01:40:07
Is there a easy way to get to speed grader from New quizzes?
Beyer, Joressia A
01:40:36
The Canvas APP works really well on Ipads. Especially the annotation tools.
Victoria
01:40:38
Thank you for a great presentation
Terri Milroy
01:40:40
Angela, you can click on the assignment on your Dashboard to go directly to speedgrader
Sheri Prupis
01:40:42
download teacher app. and you cans use speed grader from your iPad and phone
Beyer, Joressia A

Tracy McAfee
01:41:29
On various grades for students, what does the colored flags do? What do they represent?
gbritt
01:41:29
I would like a way to offer late grades per assignment rather than just a blanket policy
Michelle Manfred
01:41:56
I would like to arrange columns in the gradebook by chapter. How?
Tracy McAfee
01:42:01
On various grades for students, what does the colored flags do? What do they represent? They appear in the grading column.
Terri Milroy
01:42:03
Tracey, you might want to watch the recording, Johnna explained that
Terri Milroy
01:42:14
Or are you talking about Turnitin?
Tracy McAfee
01:42:16
Will do... thanks...
