Overview

This tutorial will show you how to send your grades from Canvas to Banner and then publish your grades in Banner. Before sending your grades, you will need to check three things: the grading scheme, muted assignments, and ungraded assignments (dashes) in the gradebook.

Sending your grades to Banner will not actually submit your grades. You must go to Banner and hit Submit.

Step 1

Log in to Canvas and open the course for which you want to publish grades. Next, select the Grades tool in the pane on the left.

Step 2

Scroll through the entire gradebook and look for any cells with dashes in them. Before you send the grades, all of the dashes must be replaced with a score: either a zero or some other value. If you skip this step, your students' grades will be different in Banner than they are in Canvas.

Look for muted assignments. Muted assignments have the potential to make Canvas grades inconsistent with Banner grades, so we recommend either unmuting the assignment before sending grades to Banner or deleting the assignment.

Step 3

Once all of the dashes have been replaced and the muted assignments are taken care of, select the menu button in the top left corner and then select the Settings tool at the bottom of the pane on the left.

Step 4

Scroll down to the Grading Scheme option. Make sure the box next to Enable course grading scheme is checked. Then select view grading scheme to make sure the grading scheme matches the actual grading scheme for your course.

Step 5

Review the values in the existing grading scheme. If they match your grading scheme, close the window and proceed to step 8. If the grading scheme does not match, select the pencil icon in the top right corner.
