Assigning Formative & Summative Assessments in Canvas


When your course is set up, all the assignments are weighted at 0%. This allows YOU to decide which of your assignments are FORMATIVE or SUMMATIVE. Formative assignments are worth 25% and summative assignments are worth 75%.


If you do not move the assignments, students will not receive credit for them. To do, simply drag the assignment to the appropriate category. 


- Select 'Assignments' from the navigation menu. 



- Drag assignments to the appropriate category. 

NOTE: You should not have ANY assignments left in the category 'Move These to the Appropriate Category!'
