Final Grade Override Option in New Gradebook

General Information:

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.

    • Final Grade Override is currently a course opt-in feature. To enable the final grade override, learn how to manage course features. You must turn this feature on in your course before you can complete the instructions given below.
    • The override column is included in Gradebook exports. However, overridden grades cannot be changed through a Gradebook import.
