If you choose to manually import this information into Canvas, you will need to do the following:

  1. Download and unzip your output files from Scanning Services.
  2. In your Canvas course, in Grades, select "Import" > "Browse."
  3. Select the .csv file you received from Scanning Services. Click Upload Data.
  4. Canvas will prompt you to either select an existing column in Grades or create a new one. If you're entering a new one, it will ask the points possible for the item. When done, click Continue.
  5. Canvas will present a list of students and their scores for the teacher to check. Any problem rows will display here for troubleshooting. If it all looks good, click Save Changes.

If you encounter any issues with this process or need assistance, please contact e-Learning Support at 352-392-4357 option 3 or use the "Message Us" button at elearning.ufl.edu.
