Changes often force us to adapt in ways we’ve never experienced, which can be a major driver of personal (and even professional) growth and development.

Canvas Grading Schemes

You can enable an existing grading scheme for your course by editing your Course Settings. If you need to change your course grading scheme at any time, you can manage the grading schemes, find a new scheme, or create your own scheme.

Faculty are in charge of their own grading schemes. You can choose one that is in the system or create your own. 

 Grading Scheme Setup

Make sure your course has the Grade Scheme enabled, so the letter grade is transferred to PeopleSoft. 

Grade Scheme

Please see the Canvas Guide: How do I enable/edit/create a grading scheme for a course?

The Default Grade Scheme option

When you enable course grading scheme, this is the default scheme that is chosen for your course.

You can also choose the other options...

Cal Poly Scheme

A Worth 95
