When downloading grade information for record retention it is not a good idea to keep that information on your desktop. Iowa State University uses CyBox for online file storage. CyBox meets all university standards for security and privacy including HIPAA and FERPA. Therefore, securely storing Canvas grades in CyBox is important for academic record-keeping. View the University Records Retention website for more information.

If you made changes to the Gradebook after exporting a file and want to export a new file, click the Export link again.
Note: Gradebook export files include the date and time of the download to differentiate between multiple exports. The export filename format is YYYY-MM-DDTHHMM, followed by the course name.
