If you are a district administrator using both the Mastery Connect (AMS) and Canvas (LMS) applications, you already have the tools for a successful year. You can easily deliver learning activities through Canvas and visualize student levels of understanding using the power of Mastery Connect from any Canvas Course.
As you get ready for another year, here are a few best practices to help administrators and teachers quickly set up Mastery Connect courses, so they can focus on what matters most: the students!
Here at Canvas, we remain committed to diversity, inclusion, and belonging and to serving all members of the Instructure family. We have updated the icon for item banks and resources within Canvas LMS and Mastery Connect to a file folder to acknowledge and respect cultural differences. One small effort like this, can make a difference for students and instructors in our global community to feel seen and heard.
What do you do if your school or district changes courses at the end of the semester, but your MasteryConnect Tracker is set up to measure student progress for the entire school year? We have a solution, link that Tracker to a different course.
Managing content at a district level is a huge job, and content is always changing. Check out three tools that will help you get your most up-to-date content into Teacher’s Trackers to help inform instruction.
Welcome back for the 2021-2022 school year! It is time for fresh crayons, blank notebooks, and a new MasteryConnect integration with Canvas. Since teachers are busy getting ready for the return of students I wanted to share six of my favorite time saving features in the new integration.
Districts want to help their educators ensure standard mastery, and then correlate those formative results with benchmark and summative data to predict progress - as well as to analyze disparities and trends by school, cohort, student subpopulation, and more.
Thank you to those of you who were able to attend the MasteryConnect Updates: More to Love for Back to School ‘21 webinar! We had a great time showing off the awesome new features that are on the way.
If you were unable to attend, it’s not too late to get a sneak preview into what is being released for Back to School (Spoiler alert: improved workflows, enhanced Tracker experiences, and deeper Canvas integration!).
Using MasteryConnect and Canvas just got better! Soon Trackers will be connected to Canvas Courses, making it even easier to access the power of the MasteryConnect directly from your Canvas Course. Now you’ll have more time for teaching, assessing, and planning instruction.
For back to school 2021, MasteryConnect has redesigned the Tracker header and made navigation within the Tracker a LOT easier to use. Our team wants teachers to have access to the features that they need on a daily basis and not waste valuable time searching for them.
In the classroom, with a paper copy of a text, students can use highlighters, sticky notes, and all kinds of colorful pens and pencils to help them annotate the text and read for understanding. Active reading while taking online assessments can be more challenging. We have all encountered students who read through a passage quickly, click through the test, and submit without demonstrating an understanding of the subject.
