How to Set Grades as Zero in the New Gradebook

Purpose: When students are late submitting assignments, missing an assignment, or do not have a grade entered into their grade box, Canvas provides methods for instructors to quickly, and automatically enter grades, particularly for reduced scores. The “Late Policies” and “ Set Default Grade” are available options that can be used in the Canvas New Gradebook to set desired grades for assignments with these situations.

**See the Quick Tip video “How to Set Assignment Late Policies in New Gradebook” for more information on the “Late Policies” feature**
