How do I view grading period dates in a course?

The Multiple Grading Periods feature allows you to use grading periods in your course created by your Canvas admin. Grading periods consist of a specific date range that define the grading period, including the close date when you are no longer allowed to edit grades in the grading period. However, the dates of each grading period can only be viewed as part of the Grading Schemes page. You may need to view the grading period dates to view how your admin has defined the grading periods.

You can only edit grades in a current or future grading period. Once the close date for a grading period has passed, you cannot edit grades for the prior grading period. The close date may be the same date as the end date, or may extend past the end date.

Note: Multiple Grading Periods is currently a course opt-in feature. To enable this feature, learn how to manage feature options in the course features lesson.
