Canvas LMS Update (November 5, 2020)
With final grade reporting complete as of November 2nd, we will be enabling the grading period option within the Canvas grades to allow teachers and students to view assignments by grading periods. This system-wide update will occur between 5:00pm – 9:00pm tomorrow, November 5th. Once the update is complete, teachers and students will be able to filter and view the Canvas grades feature by all grading periods or by a specific grading period.
Following this communication, communications will be shared with Canvas POCs, Focus POCs, and BTCs with an accompanying information sheet on how to utilize this Canvas grades feature. Additionally, teachers will be notified of this update via a global announcement in Canvas.
The Canvas grades feature is a record-keeping tool in Canvas; Focus is the CCPS official gradebook of record.
Today's students are no longer the people our educational system was designed to teach.
Instruction through Digital Innovation or IDI is our district initiative to purposefully integrate technology in our classrooms, so that ultimately, we will transform our teaching and learning practices to better prepare students for college and career readiness. As we strive to transform our learning spaces, we are focused on using technology to; extend the learning environment, capture instruction, promote collaboration, differentiate instruction and assessment as well as increase student engagement.
