Creating a "manual column" in the Canvas Gradebook

Modified on: Wed, Oct 26, 2016 at 4:48 PM

For the most part, columns in the Canvas Gradebook are controlled by Assignment settings. The columns are generated whenever an Assignment, Quiz, or Discussion is added.

If you wish to create a column in the Gradebook for an activity that is not submitted online (e.g., attendance), you will need to create an Assignment for that activity and then set the Submission Type to No Submission.
