July 18: Canvas Gradebook & Library Online Course Reserves with Ian Linkletter & Jenny Zhu

We will take an in-depth look at the gradebook and the & Library Online Course Reserves. By the end of the session, you will be able to:

  • Set assignment grade as points, percentage, complete/incomplete, or not graded.
  • Set up weighted assignment groups. For example: 5 reflection posts counts as 40% of the final mark, 2 presentations counts as 35% of the final mark, etc.
  • Use rubrics
  • Use Speedgrader to give a grade and provide feedback (by text, audio, or video) for assignments, discussions, and quizzes
  • Temporarily hide grades and feedback from student view until you finish grading all the submissions

Date: July 18, 12:00 p.m.-1:30 p.m.
Location: Neville Scarfe 1008

Both sessions are limited to 10 people, so sign up quickly before it fills up!
