CTAL’s syllabus template has been updated to include important information about Canvas’s default grading scheme. While UD does not have a required grading scale, Canvas uses a default grading scheme and the syllabus template has now been modified to feature that default scale. Some important things you should know:

  • The default Canvas grading scale does not round up; it truncates, cutting off anything after the decimal point. 
  • Canvas grading scale can be modified. Consult with your colleagues to see if your program, department, or college has a standardized scale and visit the Registrar’s website to see all of the university’s official grading options for final grades.
