How to Create Extra Credit with a Weighted Grade System

Purpose: For instructors who grade by weighted grades, an additional Assignment Group can be created in a Canvas course to allot a percentage cap of extra credit to students’ total grades. Regular assignments with point values must be created and placed into this group, then scored accordingly to correctly allot the extra credit. However, please be sure to put in the extra credit last so the final grade distributes correctly.

**With this option, students will see an “Extra Credit” Assignment Group in their grade link with the percentage and average score. Currently, there is no way to hide this.
