How do I align an outcome to an assessment question in New Quizzes?

You can align course-level and account-level outcomes to an assessment question in New Quizzes. Aligning an outcome allows you to measure student assessment performance using rating scales and mastery levels.

You can also align outcomes to an assessment.

  • If you cannot see outcomes in New Quizzes, they have not been configured for your course. Contact your Canvas administrator for assistance.
  • Outcomes scores from New Quizzes can only be viewed in the Outcomes Analysis report in New Quizzes. Outcomes scores cannot be viewed in the Learning Mastery Gradebook.

"Outcomes scores from New Quizzes can only be viewed in the Outcomes Analysis report in New Quizzes. Outcomes scores cannot be viewed in the Learning Mastery Gradebook."

 

Does this mean that their scores are not recorded for mastery? What's the point of aligning an outcome for mastery if it will not show in the Mastery Gradebook?

@Marisa_Rickel as far as I am aware because they don't appear in the Learning Mastery Gradebook they aren't recorded for mastery using that method. Currently they only appear in the Outcomes Analysis report as noted. However, this blog post from March mentions that the team working on New Quizzes is looking into passing New Quizzes outcomes data into the Learning Mastery Gradebook: https://community.canvaslms.com/t5/The-Canvas-tl-dr/New-Quizzes-to-replace-Classic-Quizzes-July-2021.... Let us know if you have any other questions.

 

Thanks,
