Knoxd, I am definitely jealous! I voted for Savvas for the ELA adoption and so did all the other ELA high school instructors I spoke with, but the district says HMH got an overwhelming number of votes, so here we are. I will keep playing around with it and if I can get it to play nice I will write down the steps of how I did it. Diana

I had that same problem. I had to have them leave HMH, go back into it and then go to their dashboard in HMH ED and hit the start button. Their answers were still saved there and then the blue submit button would show up at the top of the screen. If they use the link in Canvas to go to the assignment, they bypass the start button and then they will not have a submit button. It was frustrating. The fewer steps they have to do the better to lesson confusion. I just put in Canvas instructions to go to HMH Ed and go to their dashboard and do the assignment there, so the integration is pretty worthless without proper training on how to get it to include a submit button through a link from Canvas. Also, I can't figure out when giving an assessment in Ed that is auto-graded, how to get that to show up in my Canvas as well. I pretty much have to go to HMH go to each class, write down student grades and transfer them to Canvas, so it is making more work instead of less for teachers. I would think there is a way to do it, but all the training we have had on it has been, "Look, here is where you find the readings and assignments and leave that area to come over here to writeable" and nothing on how to actually seamlessly integrate the activities into Canvas without students having to jump through hoops.
