9. When you have selected an assessment you will see a message that gives you some helpful information regarding your exam: 

  1. First, take note of the max points of your exam. You need to manually insert this into the "Points" field on the Canvas assignment in order for the student's score to be sent to your Canvas grade book after you've finished grading. 
  2. Second, it's recommended that you do not set a start and end time in your Canvas LMS. Students will not be able to see their results after the end time. 

Once you have taken note of this information select the green Confirm button (figure 9).
