The Final Grade Tool is used to finalise the students’ grades for your course at the end of the teaching term. Until now, grades for all assignments had to be unmuted to import the grades from the Canvas gradebook to the Final Grade Tool. With the 15 August 2018 release, grades will only need to be unmuted at the final stage, prior to submitting the grades to SSO.
In this Canvas release (August 4), students can manage to-do items for all their courses using a List View Dashboard option. In DocViewer, comment replies are stacked together and can be expanded to view the entire comment thread. Scheduler interface has improved functionality, allowing teachers and students to more intuitively view and manage appointment groups created for a course.
Until recently, the only way to check students’ assignments for plagiarism was to create a Turnitin (LTI) assignment. You now have the option of creating a Canvas online assignment with the Turnitin plagiarism framework enabled. Find out the advantages of using the plagiarism framework feature in Canvas.
If you have a Teacher or Teaching Support role in your course, you can now click a student’s name anywhere in Canvas and view a quick summary of the student’s progress in the course
You can now communicate to specific sections in your Canvas course using announcements.
You may have recently noticed the new version of the gradebook being available as an option in your Canvas course. This has now been switched off temporarily.
