Here are just a few of the changes that happened over the weekend.
Learning Mastery Gradebook
The Learning Mastery Gradebook helps instructors assess the outcomes that are being used in Canvas courses. Located as part of the regular Gradebook, the Learning Mastery Gradebook provides an overview of student learning based on standards rather than grades. Instructors can also use the gradebook for feedback about curriculum and teaching methods.
Grades: Points in Student Total Grade
If an instructor grades by points in the Gradebook, students will also view their total grade in points. This option only applies if an instructor changes the grading option within the Gradebook total column from percent to points.
Reminder: Instructors can only grade by points if they are not using weighted assignment groups.
Gradebook: CSV File Assignment Group Columns
Assignment group columns are part of the CSV download from the Gradebook. This feature allows instructors to examine the overall performance of their course related to each assignment group and student scores. Each assignment group in the CSV file displays current points, final points, current score, and final score. Assignment group columns are read-only columns calculated by rules or percentages set in Canvas, and changes made to these columns within the CSV file will not be recognized if the CSV is uploaded to the Gradebook.
Course Imports: Content Selection Redesign
The Select Migration Content process has been redesigned within Course Imports. When admins or instructors copy or import courses and choose to select course content, Canvas will no longer select all content by default.
The import screen is grouped by content type. Content types that include more than one item are placed within a group that indicates the total number of content items. To expand the group, click the drop-down arrow next to the content type.
