Is there a way to get a list of a student's missing assignments for all of their courses? It is tedious to click on each course.
Here's a great primer to the Canvas API - Canvas APIs: Getting started, the practical ins and outs, gotchas, tips, and tricks
If you're interested, I'd also recommend joining the Canvas Developers group in the Community and checking into some of their resources, questions, answers, etc.
Belinda, are you asking as a Parent, teacher, Canvas Admin, or some other role? Knowing what role you serve and the level of access you have to Canvas can help with this question. In general, I can't think of anything on the front end of Canvas that would provide this information for all courses, but on the back-end I know you can use the Canvas API to generate this type of information.
I'm not the original "asker", but I too am curious. As a parent, I'd like to be able to use the API to gather missing assignments.
Can you point me in the right direction? I've gotten a token, and have used curl to pull some data, but I haven't quite worked out how to get the specific data I'm looking for.
Jim, that’s a good question and one I am not able to help with. For that you’d want to post a new question in the Canvas Developers group. They are the programmers and people who do stuff like this!
I am an admin, but teachers and counselors are wanting to be able to do this. Can you tell me more about the Canvas API?
