The New Gradebook will be available for all Queen’s University staff with permitting access, from Friday 16th August. This change is providing enhanced functionality and flexibility to improve the grading experience. All the existing Gradebook functionality will remain.

What’s NEW?

1. SAVE TIME AND INCREASE EFFICIENCY

The Grade Detail Tray allows you to easily click through all assignments for a student and view or change grade, status, and comments.
For detailed information on the grade detail tray, please see the Canvas guides:
Grade Detail Tray

2. SET GRADING RULES WITH LATE AND MISSING SUBMISSION

This will allow you to automatically deduct points or set a detail grade with the Late Submissions Policy.
For detailed information on setting a late submission policy, please see the Canvas guides:
How do I apply a Late Submission policy in the New Gradebook?

3. CONTROL GRADE VISIBILITY

Staff are able to set a Grade Posting Policy for either the whole module or per-assignment in terms of having the grades ‘hidden’ or ‘posted’ to students by default. ‘Hidden’ and ‘Posted’ replace the previous ‘Mute’ and ‘Unmute’ terminology . The posting policies can be set to automatic or manual.
For detailed information on setting a grade posting policy, please see the Canvas guides:
How do I select a grade posting policy for an assignment in the New Gradebook?

4. LEVERAGE VISUAL INDICATORS

For easier course grading through custom colour status, icons and assignment filters used to provide information about assignments and submissions. 

The following workshops will provide detailed training on the New Gradebook:
Grader Expectations
Turnitin Essentials

Further information and support will be provided over the coming weeks.
