SBG in Canvas

Weighted Assignment Groups

Most teachers utilizing standards-based grading in Canvas set up weighted assignment categories (called GROUPS in Canvas).  Typically, all practice work and rubric assignments are stored in categories worth 0% of overall student grades.  Only scores from the Learning Mastery Gradebook are used for student grades.  These placeholder assignments are typically stored in an assignment group worth 100% of the overall grade.
