How do I view my Grades?

Canvas recently introduced a new page design called the New Canvas User Interface (UI). This lesson may include two images for specific steps to show the difference between the two designs. Unless otherwise indicated, the functionality and location of the components remain the same. The view available to you is determined by your institution.

You can find your current grades in Global Navigation, or you can view them in the Course Navigation.

View Grades

Grades are sorted chronologically by assignment due date, followed by assignments with no due dates.

You can view the name of the assignment [1], the assignment due date [2], the score you earned [3], the total point value of the assignment [4], and icons for any assignment details [5].

You may also see an icon in the score column [6] indicating the type of assignment you submitted. Once your instructor has graded your assignment, the icon will be replaced by your score. You can click any score field (including ungraded assignments) and approximate your grade using what-if scores.

Assignment groups will always display as a percentage. For percentages, you can hover over the percentage to see a breakdown in the points you've earned vs the total points possible.

Your total grade can be displayed in points or percentage, depending on the preference of your instructor. However, if your course uses weighted assignment groups, your total grade will always show as a percent.

To print your grades, click the Print Grades button [7].

Click the Check Mark icon to view scoring details [1]. A box and whisker plot will show your score along with the mean, high, and low scores from the class [2]. In the box and whisker plot, the thin horizontal "whisker" extends from the lowest score for any student in the course to the highest score. The thicker, white box extends from the 25th percentile to the 75th percentile, with the median marked inside the white box by a gray line. Your score appears as a blue box on this plot.

You will only see scoring details if more than 5 other students have submitted that assignment in the course. If you do not see the scoring details, then fewer than 5 students have submitted the assignment.
