How do I approximate my assignment scores using the What-If Grades feature?

Canvas recently introduced a new page design called the New Canvas User Interface (UI). Depending on your Canvas view, your page design may vary from the images shown in this lesson. However, the functionality and location of the components remain the same.

As a student, you can view your grades based on What-If scores so that you know how grades will be affected by upcoming or resubmitted assignments.
