View Assignment History


Hi, Everyone!

I was wondering if there is anyway as an admin to view an assignment history (I'm looking for a tool akin to the "view page history"). For example, if a grader made a change to an assignment deadline for a specific student, can we trace it back to the grader? I see that I can view grade change history, but I'm not seeing anything pertaining to assignment details.

Thanks so much!

Best,

Kathleen

Pretty quick - normally the same day.

Thanks Kona, this is great.

No problem, it's definitely been a big help with you have 3 (or more) teachers going back and forth about who did what. Smiley Wink

Adding a comment to say we'd love to have access to this data ourselves -- who changed which setting, when? For quizzes, assignments, grades, pages, etc.  Also, for adding people to a course.  Asking Support for the data is OK, but we'd rather have access ourselves, on our own timeline.

I totally agree! I'd rather be able to look stuff up (have access to the data) myself. Have you considered creating a Canvas Feature Idea​ for this?

For people who are API inclined there is a Course Audit Log in the API which may have the data you are looking for. It needs audit logging enabled so check with your CSM if you are not getting any data back from the API calls.

There is also a Grad change History API as well that can show the history of changes to users grade, when and by who.

Deactivated user​ this is great info.

Somehow I have overlooked this part of the API, will definitely investigate.

Thanks for pointing this out.

 @firewuff - Does this provide any information that's not available from the UI Admin Tools How do I view course activity for an account? ? Because that is limited to a handful of events, changes in course state, resetting, copying... and I would love to have deeper details regarding changes to individual assignments, pages, etc.

Reading the API doc it looks to be very similar data.  At a guess it may be the same data source
