At CSU, Canvas academic courses are set to start with the “Basic Letter Grade 90/80/70/60 Scheme” with these values:
|A+ ||100% ||to 96.67%
|A ||< 96.67% ||to 93.33%
|A- ||< 93.33% ||to 90%
|B+ ||< 90% ||to 86.67%
|B ||< 86.67% ||to 83.33%
|B- ||< 83.33% ||to 80%
|C+ ||< 80% ||to 76.67%
|C ||< 76.67% ||to 70%
|D ||< 70% ||to 60%
|F ||< 60% ||to 0%
- The Grading Scheme that is set on each Course’s “Settings” page is only used to convert the numeric % value of the “Total score” into a “Total letter grade”.
- CSU allows these Final Grades: A+, A, A-, B+, B, B-, C+, C, D, F.
- CSU does not provide, nor recommend, any numeric grade ranges or values; instructors are free to choose the grading values for each of their classes.
- How to create a grading scheme in Canvas and add it to a course (Canvas Guide)
- Note: After creating a grading scheme at the course level, to make it active, it must be selected in the “View/Edit Grading Scheme” screen, then saved on the Course Details page.
- Best practice: If instructors choose to display assignments or gradable discussions as “Letter Grade” display, instructors should also choose a Grading Scheme for that assignment/discussion that does not use C-, D+, D-.
- Turn OFF Grading Scheme: On left menu click Settings. Uncheck Enable course grading scheme. Click Update Course Details.
- Hide Student Grade Totals.
