You can now use the Gradebook to excuse a student from an assignment, discussion, or quiz as needed. You can also excuse a student from a group assignment. Excused assignments are not calculated as part of a student’s total grade. When an assignment is excused, the assignment page and the student grade page will show the student that he or she has been excused from the assignment. Students cannot submit excused assignments.
To excuse a student you simply locate the student and the assignment you want to excuse in the Gradebook, click on that cell, type EX, then press the Enter key. You can refer to this Canvas Instructor Guide for illustrated directions.
