How do I deliver a linked Mastery Connect assessment via Canvas LTI as an external tool?

Learning Tools Interoperability (LTI) allows you to integrate Mastery Connect with Canvas. In order to link a mastery tracker to your Canvas course, your Instructure Customer Success Manager (CSM) must first set up an LTI connection between your instances of Canvas and Mastery Connect. If you do not see the Mastery Tracker link in your Canvas Course Navigation, contact your CSM.

Assessments linked via LTI may experience the following limitations:

  • Mastery Connect rubric and raw score assessments cannot be linked to a Canvas assignment.
  • Grade pass back does not work for Mastery Connect assessments that contain any rubric-scored items, even if the assessment can be linked to a Canvas assignment.

Note: These limitations do not apply to accounts that have upgraded their Mastery Connect and Canvas LTI Integration. For more information about the new upgraded integration, contact your account administrator or CSM.
