How do I link to an existing tracker in a Canvas course?

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 link to an existing tracker in a Canvas course?

If your institution uses Canvas LMS, you can link an existing mastery tracker to a Canvas course. Once this connection is made you will have access to your mastery tracker in a Canvas course, which includes mastery data, assessments built with third-party item banks, and tools to support competency-based learning.

Notes:

  • 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.
  • To link to an existing tracker from Canvas, your Canvas and Mastery Connect accounts must be synced via a Student Information System (SIS).
  • To link correctly to a Canvas course, your existing tracker must be assigned to a classroom section in Mastery Connect.
  • If you edit your Mastery Tracker or your Canvas course, your tracker and course will automatically sync overnight. If your tracker and course need to sync immediately, you can sync them manually.
  • If needed, you can unlink a tracker or move a linked tracker to another course.
