Have you ever taken the time to calculate what grade you need to get on the final exam to pass a class? With Canvas, it is easy to figure out where you stand in the course and how well you need to do to get a certain grade at the end of the term.
Go to “Grades” and click on the course. You will see a screen like this:
Click on a dash or current grade in the score column and you will get a text box where you can insert a “What If” score.
Enter a score and then click the “Return” or “Enter” key and you will see what your final grade would be if you scored that amount for that particular assignment. If your instructor has set-up a grading scheme, you will see a numeric grade (percentage) as well as a letter grade.
This hypothetical score will not be seen by your instructor. You can revert to the actual scores by clicking on the “Revert to Actual Score” button in the top-right hand corner.
