Hi, I have a number of parents with two or more kids in the school. The parents have a separate SIS ID login for each student account. Is there a way that the parent can login with one account and see both kids at once?
Hi Rebecca Penina Simon,
From Kristin Lundstrum's Blog called Clarity for Canvas Observers -- your parents will need the separate pairing codes for each of their children and then can add them to their observer account.
I still think they will only be able to actually view the activity of 1 student at a time, though they have both students in their observer account. They will have to switch between students.
The first blog post I mentioned should be all your parents need to understand what they have to do, but just in case here's another from Kristin: A Letter To Canvas Observers
Hope I got closer to understanding your question,Cheers - Shar
From the Canvas documentation,
"Observers can be linked to a student or multiple students and view the student's data in the course."
You can learn more about that in the rest of that article, found at What is the Observer role?
Thanks, I'm just not sure if you understood my question. This parent already has access to her students' accounts as an observer. How can the parent login one time and see BOTH students together at once?
Rebecca, Joseph Hansen and Sharmaine Regisford have given you great information. I'd only add that Kristin's blog post offers Canvas Parent as another solution for viewing multiple observed students.
...and one more thing, Rebecca: you might want to follow the ongoing conversation at Observer grade view sorting.
