How do I view total scores in the Gradebook as if all ungraded assignments were given zero grades?

If enabled by your institution, you can temporarily change the Gradebook view so that grades display as if all ungraded assignments were given a score of zero. This setting is a visual change only and does not affect grades for students or other users of the Gradebook.

When this setting is enabled, Canvas will not populate zeros in the Gradebook for student submissions within individual assignments. Only the assignment groups and total columns will visually factor scores of zero into the overall percentages for each student. Actual student grades are not affected.

Notes:

  • If the View Ungraded as 0 option does not display in your Gradebook, this option has not been enabled by your institution.
  • The View Ungraded as 0 option also applies to CSV exports. The CSV file displays columns for the Current and Final scores: the Current score reflects the total while ignoring unsubmitted assignments and the Final score counts unsubmitted assignments as zero.
