Exporting Grades From Canvas
Frequently, campus facilitators and other officials will need to "pull" grades from Canvas for the students they are responsible for monitoring and tracking throughout the year. Whether it's Progress Reports, Report Cards, or any other occasion, grades can be exported from Canvas to .CSV file format in just a few short steps.
Open any Canvas Course.
Click on the Grades Tab, click the drop-down arrow next to Actions, and then click Export.
This file will take a few seconds to generate and will give you a confirmation message that it is processing.
The downloaded file will deposit into your browser's Download Folder. If you are not familiar with where to retrieve this file, please see the following links for directions depending on what browser or device you are using.
When you open that report, it'll be important to know how to interpret the grades. Each grade given during that grading period will be recorded here. Some grades may be in raw number form like 7 out of 9 correct or it may be in the more common percentage (%) display. Either way, the gradebook will calculate the final values as a percentage (%).
If each assignment has been graded and posted by the teacher, then the last 4 columns will display the same values and will represent the Final Average for that Grading Period. That will be the score you record for the students' averages for that grading period.
*Note- the column label of the Final Average (AS, AT, AU, etc) will change depending on the number of total assignments given during the grading period.
