Program Assessment- Gathering Evidence

Hello Canvas Community!


We're looking for a way for an anonymous panel of faculty to do program-level assessment using the data generated by outcomes/rubrics and assignment submissions in Canvas. Here are some of our criteria (so far):


  • Canvas integration. We would like to be able to take assignments submitted into normal Canvas assignments. We don't want students to have to submit into an external system. (LTI integration seems to mean different things to different people.
  • Take a sampling of work (assignment submissions) and course-level assessment results (data from rubrics/outcomes) from Canvas, and have an anonymous panel perform a secondary assessment.
  • Includes an ePortfolio that will allow students to display a variety of evidence (images, sound, video) that will follow the students through their school career, and ideally allow students to add to the portfolio from submitted assignments, and have assessments tied to ePortfolio. (We're aware of the Canvas ePortfolio, but it has some shortcomings).


Canvas does course-level assessment really well, but we need to be able to do secondary assessment. Are any of you doing this with another product? Something you built yourself?


The one thing Canvas seems to be missing is keeping assessment data connected to actual submitted files (evidence).


Thanks in advance,
