2018-2019 Grading Guidelines

Canvas Learning Management System

Lago Vista High School uses Canvas for delivering assignment information and communicating with our students. LVHS will be using the gradebook function in Canvas to communicate grades with parents and students.

A weekly average only will be posted in TxConnect and parents can use Canvas to see the posted assignments that make up that current grade.

A few of the benefits of using the Canvas gradebook:

  • Integration with the Assignments and Quiz functions within Canvas (auto grading, streamlined feedback, peer editing).
  • Instant and improved communication with students on their assignment grades.
  • Observer view (Parent view) allows for the parent to see grades and have access to the content as well as teacher comments.
  • Uniformity of Canvas gradebook use across campus.
  • Parents can still use TxConnect for a “big picture” look at a student’s grade and use Canvas for a detailed contextual look at student’s grades.
  • In many cases, parents can access the actual assignment turned in by their student. This eliminates student responses of “I turned it in.” and “I’m not sure why I got a bad grade.”  
Creating a Parent AccountFollow instructions here to create a parent account in Canvas
You must create a parent account using a web browser on a laptop or desktop.

Log into txConnectBy acquiring a txConnect account, you will be able to view your child(ren)'s weekly grade average and attendance. To set up an account, you will need your child's portal ID which you can get from your campus secretary.
