Assignment Planning

View your progress & upcoming assignments & set goals

your progress and upcoming assignments and goals

The Assignment Planning page shows two different assignment visualizations:

Minimum Goal and Grade Progress: At the top of the page you can set a minimum course goal and view a bar showing your current grade, maximum possible grade, and minimum goal grade.

Assignments by Due Date: View upcoming and past assignments by week. For each assignment, you can see when it's due, how much it figures into your final grade, and your grade (for graded assignments).

NOTE: Only assignments that show up in your Canvas course appear in the visualizations.

Minimum Goal

Using My Minimum Goal (%)

My minimum goal

  • Set a minimum course goal as a percentage by typing in a number or using the up/down arrows in the text box. When you do this, you’ll see your goal show up on the Grade Progress bar. MyLA will also calculate the grades you need to get on all ungraded assignments to meet that goal.
  • Use the Clear button to remove the course goal and all assignment goals.

Grade Progress

Using the Grade Progress Bar

  • Current: The blue line and blue bar show your current grade in the course based on Canvas data.
  • Max Possible: The dark gray line shows the maximum possible grade you can earn in the course based on your assignments so far.
  • Goal: The green line shows the minimum course goal, if you have set that goal.

NOTE: The grades on the progress bar are based on data from your Canvas course. Always consult the syllabus and your instructor for information about how grading works in the course.
