How to Sort Names in Grades

Purpose: In the current, default Canvas gradebook, student names are automatically sorted in order by last name. However, the names are displayed by first name, last name. As this can be confusing for instructors, this video will demonstrate how to change the name display to match the current sorting method.

**These steps DO NOT apply to the New Gradebook.**

How to Use What if Grades

Purpose: “What-if” grades allow students to self-predict final score outcomes for a class. They may enter possible points received to create a mock result of a passing grade, alleviating the need for instructors to provide these calculations. Instructors are advised to clarify a course’s passing grade structure before advising students to use the “What-if” feature.
