The “Un-Canvas” Tip of the Week
Instructors don’t have to use Canvas to submit grades. Mid-Term and Final grades can be submitted electronically either via Canvas, OR via Banner Self Service. Banner Self Service is the simpler of the two systems; instructors can enter grades directly, click submit, and be finished! You can access a both short text only and a more detailed illustrated guide, and a Power Point version, at Guide to Submitting Grades via Banner Self-Service, and watch the eLearning screencast Submitting Grades via Banner Self-Service for a video demonstration.
Electronic grade submission through Canvas will be covered in next week’s Canvas Tip of the Week. Since the process requires more steps, it’s most beneficial for larger classes where grades have been totaled in Canvas or another spreadsheet program. Grades will need to be entered or uploaded into the “Final” column in Canvas first, and then extracted from Canvas and submitted to Banner using “Coursetools.”
Those who want even more details about the grade submission process can sign up for grade submission workshops to be held during week 14 and early Finals week, or stop by eLearning’s Walk-in hours for help and consultation.
