Using Any Grading Scenario in Canvas
This page will help you create a gradebook as a CSV file to import into Excel to help calculate a custom final grade column.
Click Assignments in the Course Navigation menu
Create at least two assignment groups by clicking + Group
Then, give the new group a name and click Save. (You don't have to worry about the "% of total grade" field. We will cover that in the next step).
Navigate to the Assignment Groups Weight in the assignment settings dropdown
Enable the "Weight final grade based on assignment groups" option and set one of your newly created groups to 0% and another to 100%
Then click Save.
Place all of your standard assignments in the group that is weighted at 0%
Create a no-submission assignment for the custom final grade in the group weighted at 100%
Click on the + of the assignment group
Select More Options
Give the assignment a name (For example: "Custom Final Grade")
Make sure the submission type is set as No Submission
Click Save & Publish
Navigate to Grades, click Actions, then select Export
Once the CSV file downloads, use Excel to calculate your own unique grading scenario
The final grade will appear in a column that will match with the Custom Final Grade column you created in Canvas.
Save the CSV file to an accessible location on your computer
Import the spreadsheet to Canvas by navigating to Grades, clicking Actions, then selecting Import
