When your semester grading is complete, please consult these resources that cover how to upload your grades from Canvas to LionPATH.
Creating a Compatible Penn State Grading Scheme
In order for LionPATH to successfully pull your grades from Canvas, you first need to create a grading scheme in Canvas with these same letter grades. Then you must activate that grading scheme. If you use the default grading scheme in Canvas or any other letters (e.g., C-) in a scheme, LionPATH will not successfully pull grades from your course. Penn State has created a learning path to walk you through that process.
Preparing Your Final Grades for LionPath
Using LionPATH to import your grades from Canvas is a multi-step process that requires that your Canvas Gradebook is complete and accurate. First, prepare your grades in Canvas. Then verify the accuracy of your grades using a .csv export file. Once you have completed those steps, you have two methods for entering our final grades in to LionPATH.
Penn State has created a Knowledge Base article that describes these steps in detail.
