New gradebook (effective August 2019)

This article covers some of the updated features of Canvas's new gradebook, which became effective August 2019.

Before You Start 

You'll need a Canvas course site that contains graded assignments and has the new gradebook enabled.  

The new gradebook gives instructors new capabilities to hide/post (formerly mute/unmute) grades for a course, set a late policy for a course, arrange and filter elements in new ways, and more. This change is now active across all of the Penn Canvas instances (except for the Law School, which doesn't use the Gradebook).

Posting grades

With New Gradebook, you can automatically hide or post (formerly mute or unmute) all feedback and grades. 

Changing the posting policy for a course

If you would prefer that your grades and feedback appear automatically, as they did previously, you can change the posting policy.

Exporting and importing

The ability to export and import the new gradebook is now found under a new "Actions" menu. 

Setting a late policy

You can now apply automatic grading rules to missing and late submissions.

Arranging, sorting, and filtering

You now have the ability to arrange, sort, and filter your gradebook in new ways. Power users will appreciate the new ways to filter rows and columns, such as by team or group.
