How do I publish grades to Banner?
If your institution is using Banner as a Student Information System (SIS), you can use the Gradebook to pass final grades back to Banner. Banner must be preconfigured for your account to use this feature. Additionally, course grading scheme must be enabled to publish letter grades. Verify you have an enabled course grading scheme.
When grades are sent, Canvas will immediately initiate the grades transfer, but you may need to wait a few minutes before data appears in Banner.
Grades can be re-published with new grade values to Banner until the grades are rolled.
Note: If the Publish Grades to SIS option is not available to you, please contact your Canvas administrator.
Ensure letter grades are correct in the Gradebook Total column by reviewing all assignments and grades in the Gradebook before exporting.
- Canvas will publish the Final Grade to Banner, meaning any ungraded assignments with a point value will be calculated as zero. The Gradebook does not display a Final Grade column.
- Muted assignments will not be included in the grades passed to Banner. Verify all assignments are unmuted before publishing the Final Grade.
