The Final Grade Override allows you to enter a final grade for students that is different from the grade automatically calculated by Canvas.
You can enter a letter grade or a percentage. A letter grade results in the lower bound of the grading scheme. A percentage is retained as the override score.
Students can view the overridden grade in their Grades page. However, students will not know the score has been overridden.
