Grade Data in Canvas is "pushed" to The Granite Gradebook" continuously but may take up to 24-36 hours to appear. Remember there are a lot of schools - not just ours. If there are points in the Canvas Grades app it will eventually make it to the Granite Gradebook for calculation. Patience is key. But if does not show up talk to your teacher who can talk to me...
Students and Parents should use Canvas and its tools for CONTENT ONLY. Grades are calculated in the Granite Gradebook.
Canvas also has no Grade scale function - which means there are no letter grades only percentages or scores. Letter Grades are calculated in Granite Gradebook.
What is the difference? (In an over-simplified answer)
- Canvas is an interactive Learning Management Tool where teachers can create webpages, assignments, (discussion, self graded quizzes...), groups, peer reviews, add links or other resources, store files, communicate. Anything with a date is added to the students' calendar. Parents who have signed up can observe all this too.
- Gradebook - Stores and calculates numbers to display a letter grades. It HAS to be used to take attendance, and post Mid-Terms and end of quarter grades. Assignment scores can be posted in Gradebook or in Canvas
