I'm building a tool for entry and reporting of course outcomes.
I can do:
- Create/import outcomes for all courses.
- Get the results
- Write to database
- Build a report
I can't do:(Don't know how to do).
- Submit/update results to an outcome for a student. (via api or LTI)
- Create rubrics via API LTI.
I could use the submission API, but it requires a rubric with the outcomes aligned to it, and I can't create a rubric.(Rubric API is limited)
I could build a one question question bank, build a quiz with that bank, use the quiz submission API, to enter the data. Nope, no Api to link an outcome to a bank.
We have enough faculty adoption to start using Canvas to collect data on student outcomes for internal course improvement and accreditation reporting. The challenge so far has been a data entry process for faculty to use.
Canvas supports Rubrics or Question groups. Which works for a lot of cases, but not all and there is not a good way to collect supplemental data.
Learning Mastery Gradebook is a good tool but it does not give faculty a comparison to their peers.
This looks seemed like an excellent job for an LTI tool.
A course level LTI tool has easy access to the students, outcome results, faculty.
A report could be built to compare results from previous semester/peer courses.
(Something to share comments between faculty) probably in person meetings. maybe?(there are a few good Instcon presentations on this as well). If I find my notes I'll link them later.
I went over the last 3 years of video seeing what other collages are using for outcomes.
I just can't find a way to update scores for an outcome.
Besides faculty created rubrics or questions banks.
