How do I view context cards in the Teacher app on my Android device?

Find your school's Canvas URL

To find your school or institution's Canvas URL, begin typing the name of your school/institution. Results will appear after you type at least 3 characters. For best results be as specific as possible. If you can't find your school, try using any part of your school's name or searching for your school district or state. You may also need to search for the school using the acronym or full name, for example "USU" and "Utah State University".

How do I view context cards in the Teacher app on my Android device?

In Canvas Teacher, you can open context cards to view information specific to students and other users in a course. Context cards can be opened by tapping a user's name from the People page, Submissions list, SpeedGrader, SpeedGrader comments, inbox messages, announcement replies, and discussion replies. This lesson explains how to open context cards from the People page.

The images in this lesson are shown for a phone display, but unless otherwise noted, tablet displays mirror the same steps.

The context card for a student includes their contact information [1], date/time of last activity [2], and course section [3].  

The Grades section displays the total grade before all grades are posted [4] and the total grade after all hidden grades are posted. The grade before posting removes any grades that are currently hidden or muted and matches the grade displayed to the student. The grade after posting includes any grades that are currently hidden or muted. If a final grade override has been applied for the student, the override grade will also display in the Grades section.

The Submissions section displays the number of submitted assignments [5], the number of late assignments [6], and the number of missing assignments [7].

Note: The grade before posting and grade after posting displays for all courses and applies to courses that use post policies in the New Gradebook and courses that use muting grades in the Gradebook.
