Is there a way to include metadata for People in Canvas for Outcome reporting?

Hi All,


We've been thinking about our future with Canvas and reporting on Outcomes.

Some academic admins have expressed interest in reporting on Outcomes based on cohort and/or program (college > campus > degree > major). But here's the thing: In our SIS (Banner) cohort and program are attributes that are associated with student records as opposed to course details. I don't see fields in a user's record to enter that sort of metadata.


So I'm wondering if anyone has had any success in:

  • Identifying Canvas users by cohort or program, and...
  • Using Canvas Data to slice Outcome stats across the aforementioned student attributes.
