Some question types in quizzes are automatically graded by Canvas when a quiz is submitted:

  • Multiple Choice
  • True/False
  • Fill in the Blank
  • Fill in Multiple Blanks
  • Multiple Answers
  • Multiple Dropdowns
  • Matching
  • Numerical Answer
  • Formula Question

Other question types, such as Essay and File Upload, will need to be manually graded by the instructor. The instructor can also overwrite an automatic grade if needed.

Please see the CTLD's tutorials on Quizzes/Tests for information about creating quizzes, or the Canvas knowledgebase for information about grading quiz questions using SpeedGrader or grading quiz questions one at a time.

Instructions can be found on the Canvas knowledgebase.

You can create a column with no attached assignment in the Canvas gradebook by creating a "non-submission assignment". Please see the Canvas knowledgebase to learn more.

The Canvas gradebook does not include the option to create calculated columns. Please see the CTLD's self-help tutorials or the Canvas knowledgebase for more information and tutorials about using the Canvas gradebook.

You can leave feedback on student submissions using text, an attached file, or an audio/video clip. Please see the Canvas knowledgebase for more information.

You can hide grades from students either through the gradebook or in SpeedGrader. You can post grades whenever you are ready for students to see them.

The final grade submission process has not changed with the transition to Canvas; final grades will still be submitted through the Self-Service Banner option on the Faculty and Staff Hub, and the process still follows the steps on the Registrar's Grade Submission page.
