Prepare Your ELMS-Canvas Gradebook to Upload Scores to UMEG


Part one of the three-step process for submitting mid-term and final grades from ELMS-Canvas to UMEG includes managing the ELMS-Canvas gradebook.

  1. Log into ELMS-Canvas and access the gradebook for your course
  2. Post Grades for hidden grades. Any assignment with hidden grades is indicated by the Visibility icon (eyeball-with-a-slash). If scores are left hidden, they will NOT be factored into final scores in the EMT.
    • If you want hidden assignment scores to be factored into final scores, you need to release grades to your students by hovering over the assignment column header and then clicking the 3 stacked dots.
    • Select Post grades from the drop-down menu. (All students are automatically notified of their new/edited grade.)Post Grades for hidden grades.
