How do I use SpeedGrader in a MasteryConnect assessment in a Canvas course?

If your institution uses Canvas LMS, you can connect a Mastery Tracker to your Canvas course. After connecting the tracker to Canvas, you can access mastery data, third-party item bank assessments, and competency-based learning tools.

When you create a MasteryConnect assessment from your Mastery Tracker in Canvas, a linked assignment is created in Canvas, which you can administer to students. Once a student completes the linked Canvas assignment, you can use SpeedGrader to grade the linked assignment.

Open Canvas Course

Open Canvas Course

Log in to your Canvas account.

In Global Navigation menu, click the Courses link [1]. Then click the name of the course [2].

Note: In order to administer a Mastery Tracker assessment through Canvas, you must first link a Mastery Tracker to your course and add a Mastery Tracker assessment.

View Canvas Assignments

In the Course Navigation, click the Assignments link [1] to view your linked Mastery Tracker assignments. Canvas assignments created from raw score Mastery Tracker assessments will import as published assignments [2]. All other MasteryConnect assessments will import as an unpublished canvas assignment [3].

To grade or view further details for a linked Mastery Tracker assignment, click a published assignment title [4].

Open SpeedGrader

To grade submitted assignments in Cavas via SpeedGrader, click the SpeedGrader button.

View SpeedGrader

SpeedGrader includes several areas to help you locate and view student submissions, grade submissions, and add comments to submissions.

Note: Learn more about SpeedGrader for Canvas.

View Assignment Details

The center of the menu bar includes assignment information and overall grading information. Assignment information includes the name of the assignment [1], assignment due date [2], and the name of the course [3].

To view the assignment details, click the name of the assignment.

Grading information includes assignment statistics, such as the number of assignments that have been graded out of the total number of students in the course [4]. You can use this information to keep track of your grading progress. Grading information also includes the class average score and percentage [5].

View Student Submission

Once you have selected a student, the student's submission displays in SpeedGrader. To grade the assessment, use the Performance Grader within the MasteryConnect preview window [1]. To switch between questions, use the question navigation pane [2].

When you are done grading, click the Save Changes button within the MasteryConnect Performance Grader window [3].

To return to the Canvas Gradebook, click the Gradebook icon [4].

Notes:

  • You must click the Save Changes button in the MasteryConnect Performance Grader window in order for the assessment score to be passed back to the Gradebook.
  • Do not use the SpeedGrader buttons or text fields to update the assessment score. Use the MasteryConnect Performance Grader window to grade and save the assessments.
  • If you update the assessment score using the SpeedGrader buttons or text fields, the score will not be saved in the Canvas Gradebook. The Canvas Gradebook will only be updated after you save the assessment scores using the Mastery Connect Performance Grader.
