  • If you cannot find a rubric you want to use in your course, you can create a new rubric. Once you create a rubric, the rubric is saved in your course for future use. You can add the rubric to an assignment and use the rubric for grading and adding comments. You can manage created rubrics in the Manage Rubrics page.

    This lesson shows how to create a rubric in the Manage Rubrics page. You can also create a rubric directly when adding a rubric to an assignment, and the process is the same.

    Note: Currently criterion cannot be reordered after they are added to a rubric.

  • The user details page shows a user's profile picture, memberships, and recent messages, as well as other data.


    • If your user details page does not match the layout shown in this lesson, please reference the user profiles lesson, which shows how to use the user details page when Profiles are enabled for your institution.
    • Viewing user details is a course permission. Depending on your permissions, you may not be able to view all available information in a user's details page.
  • A grading scheme is a set of criteria that measures varying levels of achievement in a course. Course-level grading schemes are grading schemes that can be defined at both the course level and the assignment level. Without a grading scheme, scores are not measured against any specific standard.

    You can enable a grading scheme created by your institution, or you can add a new grading scheme specific to your course.

  • You can upload files to both user and group files. Files can be used for assignments, discussion replies, and conversation attachments. Additionally, files in your user or group files can always be embedded in Canvas using the Rich Content Editor.

    Learn how to locate your user files and group files.


    • For assignment submissions, you can upload a file from your computer or select a file that has been previously uploaded to your user files. If you select a previously uploaded file, you can delete the file after it has been submitted and free up extra storage in your user files.
    • If your group file requires you to set a usage right, you must specify the file information before the file can be published. If your group does not require usage rights, group files are automatically published.
  • You can add a section to your course by editing your course Settings in Canvas. Sections help subdivide students within a course and offer section-specific options such as varied due dates for assignments, discussions, and quizzes.

    Sections can also be created for students who need extra time in a course, such as if a student has an incomplete grade.

    Note: Sections may be added by your institution's student information system (SIS). Some course sections may have already been created for you.

    Hva er tester?

    Quizzes in Canvas are assignments that can be used to challenge student understanding and assess comprehension of course material. The quiz tool is used to create and administer online quizzes and surveys. Quizzes can also be used to conduct and moderate exams and assessments, both graded and ungraded.

    Canvas has four different types of quizzes:

    • A graded quiz is the most common quiz and rewards students points based on their quiz responses.
    • A practice quiz is a learning tool to see how well users understand course material without providing a grade.
    • A graded survey rewards students with points for completing a survey but grading is not based on right or wrong answers.
    • An ungraded survey obtains opinions or other information without providing a grade.
  • When you create an assignment, you can choose to add an external app (LTI tool) as a submission type. External apps must be added in your course before they can be added to an assignment.

    Note: The External Tool submission type does not support group assignments or peer reviews.

  • Using Assignment Groups allows you to organize the assignments in your course.

  • As a student, you can view your grades based on What-If scores so that you know how grades will be affected by upcoming or resubmitted assignments. You can test scores for an assignment that already includes a score, or an assignment that has yet to be graded.


    • What-If scores simulate updates to your current and final grades. Depending on the grade calculation for your course, your grades may display as a point value or as a percentage.
    • Your instructor may restrict you from viewing your current and/or final grades.
  • In Canvas, the Observer role can be used to enroll parents, mentors, and guests who would like to participate in a Canvas course but do not need to earn course credit. Observers have limited permissions that allow them to see what is going on in a course without interrupting the flow of daily course communication. Like students, Observers cannot view a course until it is published and the course has started.

    To learn more about the observer role, view the Parent Registration and Student Observation video.

    Observers may be able to view assignments, course events, and grades for a student in the Canvas Parent app.
