Grading Exams: Excusing students from in-person exams

by | Nov 10, 2020 | Canvas updates

Canvas assignments and quizzes can be assigned to everyone, sections, or individual students. If you have in-person exam assigned to everyone, and online exams assigned to sections, e.g. offshore Online section OO, or individual students, you need to excuse the students who took the online exam from the in-person exam. For example, as shown in the screenshot below, an online exam and a in-person exam, named “Final Exam” , are created in an assignment group. The students have been assigned the online exam need to be excused from the “Final Exam”.

In Canvas Grades, you can excuse an assignment by typing ‘EX’ in the assignment cell, then press the Enter button on keyboard to save it as ‘Excused’.
