I am an 8th grade Humanities teacher in Washington State.  My state is currently using the Smarter Balance Assessment (SBA) to assess students at the end of the school year.  I know that many other states have SBA testing as well.  One of the portions of the SBA at the middle school level is the completion of a Performance Task.  I am curious if… (Show more)

This is our first school year using Canvas on a pretty small scale. We started the year with only 16 teachers at the high school and have grown to a little over 30. We offered some development sessions throughout the year, for example, we just held a Just One Unit session. The idea was to help those who are just starting to dabble a bit with… (Show more)

Comments do not transfer from Canvas to PTP with the sync, so teachers are going into PTP and adding comments for some students. The next time the teacher uses the sync for a different assignment, the… (Show more)

We would like to be able to make Global Announcements appear in the Course Announcements, and especially in the course 'Recent Announcements' when instructors select that option. Further refinements would include limiting to active courses and by sub-account.   Reasoning:  school portals and bookmarks allow students and instructors to directly… (Show more)

I was trying to chase down some information for this question, and found that (at least for us) because we use AD/LDAP that the only SAML2 logins were used for SSO to Jive. Which gave me a quick look at our users who have logged into and joined the Canvas Community.   Use Cases Identify faculty looking for more help or collaboration, identify… (Show more)

At my school, we're really struggling with how to track attendance in our online courses in a way that meets with our state virtual schools attendance requirements. Our state's requirements are bi-weekly back and forth between the student and teacher, and to monitor that the student is making progress.    Most of our teachers have about 200… (Show more)
