How do I add or edit points for an assignment?

You can add or edit the amount of points on a given assignment.

Notes:

  • When an assignment is set as a moderated assignment, only the moderator or a Canvas admin can edit the assignment after it is published.
  • Points possible must be set to a number greater than zero for assignments with percentage, points, letter grade, or GPA grading types.
