LEARNING MASTERY GRADEBOOK

Monitor formative and summative assessments to track pupil performance

The Learning Mastery Gradebook provides a dynamic way for teachers to record and monitor assessment activity. Assignments, as well as graded quizzes and discussions, automatically populate the gradebook. There, teachers can use the Canvas SpeedGrader tool to quickly mark pupils’ work and to provide text, audio and video feedback. Teachers can also quickly assess pupils’ submitted work against learning outcomes and objectives.

INTEGRATED MEDIA

Record audio & video messages within Canvas

What if teachers could easily include audio or video comments as part of a course discussion or when marking pupil work? With Canvas, you can. All you need is a computer or mobile device with a microphone and camera and Canvas does the rest. Multimedia can be attached to personal messages, assignments, discussions and even marked work.

SPEEDGRADER

Connect assessment with learning goals

Because Canvas is cloud native, teachers can view, mark and provide feedback on pupil submissions from a computer or a tablet without time-consuming downloads or uploads. And integrated outcomes allow coursework to be connected to competencies, making assessing work easier. When aligned with rubrics, outcomes can even help improve teacher feedback.

AUTOMATED TASKS

Course management has never been easier

Repetition has its place in the learning process, but who needs practice rescheduling due dates? When you create or update an assignment in Canvas, it automatically populates the syllabus, gradebook and calendar, so you can maximise your time by minimising repetitive tasks.
