Pass Outcome Results from New Quizzes to Canvas

Pass Outcome Results from New Quizzes to Canvas

Standards based graded (a.k.a. Outcomes) is becoming more and more prevalent in education.  We use formative and summative assessments to determine whether outcomes (standards) are met.  Quizzes.next is the PERFECT tool to assess outcomes.  However, Canvas is our grade system and if we are grading based on outcomes, the outcome information from Quizzes.Next MUST be passed back to Canvas.  At this point we have to check outcomes that are aligned with assignments and those that are aligned with Quizzes.Next separately.  That just is counterintuitive when Quizzes.Next will soon be the Quiz tool in Canvas.  Please, please vote this up so it can be done soon!!!  The capability is there!  It just needs to make the priority list.

Here are some pictures describing the request/problem.  We just need the outcomes that are in Quizzes.Next to also show up in the Mastery Gradebook since that is where we are checking the Outcomes.  At the present time, they are not passed back to Canvas and cannot be viewed as being "met" in Canvas.

See below...

Here are the outcomes for the quiz:

And outcomes in a specific quiz question:

And the outcomes analysis in Quizzes.Next

And the outcomes report for the student outside of Quizzes.Next

And Mastery Gradebook shows the same picture that is above.

When students take a quiz in quizzes.next, their outcome results are not handed back to canvas. So when I go to the mastery gradebook, they are not present.

As we move to standards-based grading, this is huge. I put in a helpdesk ticket and this community post is the result.

Here is some more info on my request with pictures. Should I update my

post to include all of this info? What was confusing about what I am

asking for? I just want to fix it so that everyone understands the

request. The outcomes go from Canvas to Quizzes.Next, but not the reverse

for the students after they take the quiz. That is all. See below...

Here are the outcomes for the quiz:

And outcomes in a specific quiz question:

And the outcomes analysis in Quizzes.Next

And the outcomes report for the student outside of Quizzes.Next

And Mastery Gradebook shows the same that is above.

Does this make better sense with the screenshots. The outcomes mastered in

Quizzes.Next are not being sent to the Mastery Gradebook or the "other"

canvas part - outside of Quizzes.Next.

Thanks!

And for what it is worth -- the description that was linked does not match

what I am hoping to have Canvas do.

Thank you for confirming that, stacie.gomm@ccsdut.org‌. We're looking forward to seeing the screenshots. The links in the attachments are broken.

I fixed them! They are now posted in the original post.

Thank you, stacie.gomm@ccsdut.org‌! We appreciate how much time and care you've devoted to developing and presenting this idea. It is open for voting.

I would assume it's the same/similar issue, in that Quizzes.next is not able to pass account-level Outcomes assessments back to Canvas for the Outcomes account-level report.  We agree that the ability to align outcomes per question in Quizzes.next is a great feature, instead of aligned with question banks, but it won't be used if the information doesn't pass back to Canvas for reporting purposes.  Outcomes reports available within Quizzes.next will not be enough.
