So, as an instructor sometimes you need to create a grade column (like for in-class participation in a hybrid course) in Canvas. The only way to make another grading column is by creating a graded assignment of some sort. Here is how to do it:

1. Add your assignment (I prefer to do this from the module view)

1b-add-assignment

2. Create a new assignment – in this example called “Midterm Participation Grade”

2b-add-item

3. Set the points and set it to percentage (if you wish) and click on the submission type “No Submission”

3b-setup-item

4. Now it will show up in the gradebook and you wil be able to give a manual grade to the students.
