Can I see all grades for an Outcome?


As I understand it, the Learning Mastery report in the Gradebook shows me each student's performance according to the rules set up for that outcome (e.g., decaying average, most recent, etc.) I would really like to get a report that shows all of the instances of that outcome for all assignments in a course so I can do my own data analysis. So instead of seeing the decaying average, I would like to see that Student A scored 3, 6, 4, 5, and 1 the five times they did assessments with Outcome Q on the rubric. 

Is there an easy way to do this? Canvas reports would be great, but Tableau reporting would also be in our wheelhouse.

This is a really old question, sorry no one has replied yet!

In short, there is no great outcome reporting yet. The best method I've found (without resorting to custom API calls) is to go through the Outcomes menu to get a list of assignments and then I pull those assignment stats. Click on the Outcome title in the navigator to get the list:



It is very less than ideal.

The other option is to get in touch with your IT department and ask them for an Outcome Report from the Admin console. This dumps a CSV that can be sorted by course ID or student ID. It lists all attempts, the assignment score, and the Outcome score. It just requires an admin account pull those numbers.

I keep hoping that Canvas devs will show Outcomes some love in the near future...I'm still waiting 🙂

None of the answers suggested here were what we needed. I've pretty much quit using Outcomes because of their limited applicability and lack of reporting.
