What happens to a student's data when they change classes?

Student assignment data in Savvas Realize is associated with the class the student resides in at the time the assignment is completed. If a student moves to another class in the school or district, the data does not follow the student.

Administrators can still access that data via a school or district-level report in Savvas Realize Reporting Services, but the teacher of the new class cannot see the student's assignment data from the previous class.


Within Canvas, student grades have never automatically transferred from one course to another.   The only instance that this can occur is if the student was switched from one section to another with the same teacher AND the teacher already had the sections cross-listed in Canvas.

 Teachers must do the following to manually transfer a student's grades: 

Have the previous teacher export grades (1), then the new teacher would import grades (2).  However, the new teacher would need to do a 1-to-1 match for each Assignment grade into their own assignments by following these directions.
