This article walks faculty members through the process of determining the last date of attendance for a student who has withdrawn from a Brightspace course. If you need the last date of attendance for a student who has withdrawn from a Canvas course, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
To determine the last date of attendance for a user in Brightspace you will:
Access the course in question and select Roster from the blue navigation bar
Once in the resulting Classlist page, select the Enrollment Statistics button near the top of the page
Scroll to the bottom of the page to find the Withdrawals section
Locate the student in question.
Look to the right to see the last date of course access.
Use the context menu, to the right of a learner's name, to view grades and attendance data (if applicable)
Hide the Final Calculated Grade in Brightspace— Hiding the Final Calculated Grade can be helpful if Instructors want to prevent students from seeing their (final) grade at any point during the term and if an Instructor wishes to prevent students from receiving email notifications when a grade has been entered/updated (since the Final Calculated Grade, by default, will also be updated each time a grade is entered which causes email notifications to be sent to students).
Hide a Single Grade Item or Grade Category from Students— When grading student work, instructors might want to decide to keep grades and feedback hidden from learners until all work has been graded, for example. For grades and feedback to be fully hidden from students, both a) the grade item and/or its category and b) the graded activity itself need to be made invisible.
Dismiss Activities from QuickEval— When you dismiss an activity, it is hidden from the Quick Eval list, but won't affect the activity. A dismissed activity is still available for evaluation from its own tool (Assignments, Quizzes, Discussions).
Entering all grades for a specific Grade Item— There are many ways to enter grades into Brightspace. Typically you might enter grades within the Assignment or Quizzes tool. However there are times when you may not be using those tools, but have another activity that requires a grade. One of the simplest and most straightforward is to use the Enter Grades function within the Gradebook. This method allows you to input all the grades for a specific activity in one place, without having to use the assignment or quiz tools.
