  • You can export scores from the Gradebook and download them to your computer as a CSV file. At the time of export, the CSV file data matches the current filter(s) and settings shown in the Gradebook.

    Notes about CSV files:

    • Some columns that appear in the CSV file are read-only columns calculated by rules or percentages set in Canvas. Any changes made to these columns will be ignored when you re-upload the file to your course.
    • For assignment group columns, changes made to assignment scores will automatically be included in the assignment group calculation in the Gradebook.
    • CSV downloads honor multiple grading periods. The Gradebook exports the grading period being viewed in the Gradebook. For All Grading Periods, if the option to view total grades is not enabled, Total Score columns and assignment group totals are not included in the download.
    • The Total Score displayed in the Gradebook reflects each student's score at the time of viewing, taking into account whether the instructor has chosen to have ungraded assignments treated as zero, muted assignments, assignment due dates, etc. Therefore, the CSV download includes read-only columns for current and final score. Current score reflects the total while ignoring unsubmitted assignments, and the final score counts unsubmitted assignments as zero.
    • If a student has submitted an assignment multiple times, the CSV file only accounts for the most recent submission.
    • The notes column is not included in the Gradebook CSV export file.
    • Concluded and inactive enrollments are not included in the CSV file unless their respective option, Show Concluded Enrollments or Show Inactive Enrollments, is enabled in the Gradebook Settings menu.
    • Complete/incomplete assignments are shown as full or no credit (e.g. for a 10-point assignment, 10 or 0).
  • You can add a file to your course by uploading a file. You can also import files using the course import tool in Course Settings.

    As an instructor, you can drag and drop files from your personal files into course files.

    Note: Video and audio uploads to Canvas through the media tool can be up to 500 MB in size.

  • The Calendar is a great way to view everything you have to do for all your courses in one place. You can view calendar events by day, week, month, or agenda list. The calendar also includes access to the Scheduler, which is an optional scheduling tool in Canvas.

  • In addition to setting a due date for an assignment, instructors can specify a specific date range when students can submit the assignment. These dates are called availability dates. These dates are optional and can be set depending how you want to manage the assignment.

    In Quizzes, availability dates may affect student submissions. For more details, view the Quiz availability dates lesson.

    Notes:

    • Beneath the Due Date and Availability date fields, Canvas will display the time zone date and time according to context. If you manage courses in a time zone other than your local time zone and create or edit a due date for an assignment, the course and local times will be displayed for reference.
    • When Multiple Grading Periods are enabled in a course, only due dates are validated against closed grading periods. Availability dates do not apply.
  • If you do not already have a Canvas account, you need to create an account before you can log in to Canvas.

    If you are using Canvas through your institution, you will most likely already have an account and need to accept a course invitation. Your institution will email your login information. If you do not yet have an account, you can create an account when you accept the course invitation. If your institution is using Canvas and you are having trouble with your account, contact your administrator for assistance.

    If your institution is not using Canvas, you can create your own account, also known as a free-for-teacher account, to create your own courses.

    Note: Free-for-Teacher accounts are always free. However, they do not contain all features available to institutional users of Canvas. Learn more in the Canvas Account Comparison PDF.

  • Your instructors may want to create groups within a course but still allow you to form your own group. Joining students groups are easy in Canvas.

  • If you do not already have a Canvas account, you need to create an account before you can log in to Canvas.

    If you are using Canvas through your institution, you will most likely already have an account and need to accept a course invitation. Your institution will email your login information. If you do not yet have an account, you can create an account when you accept the course invitation.

    If you are not using Canvas through your institution, you can create your own account. Your instructor will provide you with a join code to link you directly to the course. This code will be sent to you separately from the Canvas email that invites you to join the course. If you need to create an account in Canvas but have not received your join code via email, please contact your instructor or institution for help with logging in.

  • You can upload files to both user and group files. Files can be used for assignments, discussion replies, and conversation attachments. Additionally, files in your user or group files can always be embedded in Canvas using the Rich Content Editor.

    Learn how to locate your user files and group files.

    Notes:

    • For assignment submissions, you can upload a file from your computer or select a file that has been previously uploaded to your user files. If you select a previously uploaded file, you can delete the file after it has been submitted and free up extra storage in your user files.
    • If your group file requires you to set a usage right, you must specify the file information before the file can be published. If your group does not require usage rights, group files are automatically published.

  • The Calendar is a great way to view everything you have to do for all your courses in one place. You can view calendar events by day, week, month, or agenda list. The calendar also includes access to the Scheduler, which is an optional scheduling tool in Canvas.

    Manual Student guide
  • If your institution has enabled the Scheduler tool, you can sign up for any appointments that are created for your course using the Scheduler page. Appointments can include office hours, group presentation time slots, and lunch with an alumnus.

    Scheduler is an optional feature that may not be available to you in the Calendar.

    Note: Currently, Scheduler has two options for viewing appointments. This lesson is for users with the Scheduler button as a calendar view. If your calendar does not display the Scheduler button, you can only sign up for appointments in the calendar sidebar.
