What is a tracker?

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".

What is a tracker?

Mastery Connect trackers provide a visual overview of student standard mastery. You can use the customizable tracker interface to assess student mastery of core standards and monitor student performance. With trackers, you can also share student mastery data with other teachers, administrators, students, and parents. As a teacher, you will generally have one tracker per subject or per class.

You can create trackers directly by adding standards and assessments, or you can create trackers from a curriculum map of standards and assessments. You can create a tracker from your curriculum map, a shared curriculum map, or another staff member's curriculum map.

You can add students to trackers manually, individually from a SIS or you can import them from a CSV file. If Mastery Connect is integrated with your district's Student Information System (SIS),  you can create a tracker from a SIS section.

From a tracker, you can also manage assessments, generate reports, and communicate with parents.
