Viewing Grades and Feedback

Quercus (Canvas) is a tool that instructors may use to communicate grades to students. Your instructor may post marks for your assignments in your Quercus (Canvas) course. The instructor may also return graded work, either through Quercus (Canvas) or through an alternative method.

Please contact your instructor if you have any questions or concerns regarding your grades.


  • ACORN is the official repository for grades.
  • To properly view grades and feedback it is recommended that you use a laptop or desktop computer and not a mobile device.
