Canvas: View grade information and Last Date of Activity (LDA) for students who have withdrawn from a course


Canvas is Oregon State University's Learning Management System.

To view grades and assignments for students who have withdrawn from your course (inactive enrollments):

  1. Open Grades in your Canvas course
  2. Hover the mouse cursor over the Student Name column header
  3. Click the vertical ellipsis (three dots) that appear in the column header
  4. Click Inactive enrollments from the drop-down menu that appears
  5. These students will now display in the grade book and will have an 'inactive' label next to their name

To view the Last Date of Activity for these students:

  1. Click the People menu link in your course menu on the left.
  2. The Last Activity column is fifth column on the page.  You can use the search fields to narrow your search.
  3. Students with an inactive enrollment will have an 'inactive' label next to their name.
  4. Students with no Last Activity date listed did not view or participate in the Canvas course.

Inactive students also appear (without an 'inactive' label) in any Canvas course groups to which they were previously assigned, and on Canvas quiz moderation pages.

You can find more information on inactive enrollments in the Canvas Community
