Canvas is working to build a new Gradebook that allows for more flexible grading, is more intuitive, and elevates the Gradebook user experience.


Instructors can enable the new Gradebook in their ICON courses now even while Canvas continues to add functionality changes over the next few months. To turn on the new Gradebook, navigate to the Settings page of your ICON course, then click on the Feature Options tab, then click the switch next to “New Gradebook”. At this time, instructors can switch back and forth between the old version of Gradebook and the new one, and the information they input will transfer between the two.


Note that if an instructor enables the new Gradebook and sets up a late policy (marks an assignment as late/missing/excused), they will not be able to switch back to the current Gradebook. Please visit https://community.canvaslms.com/docs/DOC-13884-late-policies-faq for more information on late policies in Canvas.
