Instructors have two choices for submitting grades. They can be submitted electronically either via Canvas and CourseTools, or via Banner Self Service. Banner Self Service is the simpler of the two systems. Instructors can simply type their grades directly into BanWeb, click submit, and be finished!
Grade submission through Canvas requires a couple more steps. It is often most beneficial for larger classes, and for courses where grades are already entered in Canvas or another spreadsheet program. Grades need to be entered or uploaded in Canvas first, and then extracted from Canvas and submitted to Banner using the Grade Wizard on “Coursetools.” Those who have the correct letter grades for their students in their Canvas Total column can choose that column in the first step of the Grade Wizard, so there’s no longer any need to copy scores out of the Total column, unless you want to “tweak” them.
Information and instructions can be accessed on eLearning’s Electronic Grade Submission Information & Resources page. Instructors and instructional staff can also attend one of the two grade submission workshops, and as always, can contact support, get online help, and utilize our eLearning Walk-In Hours for Canvas help, all available on Canvas One Stop.
