  • Your instructor may include a rubric as part of your assignment. The Rubric is a set of criteria that your instructor will use to grade your assignment. Before submitting your assignment, you can use the Rubric to evaluate your own work and make sure your assignment fulfills your instructor's requirements.

    Note: Not all assignments may include a rubric.

  • When creating an assignment, you can require students to complete a peer review of another student's work. Learn more about peer review assignments.

    For peer reviews, you can manually assign peer reviews or choose to have Canvas automatically assign peer reviews for you. You can also choose to allow students to see other students' names in peer reviews or make them anonymous. When anonymous peer reviews are enabled, instructors and TAs can still view the names of student reviewers in SpeedGrader and in the student submission page. However, if anonymous grading is enabled in SpeedGrader, the names of both students will be hidden in SpeedGrader but not in the student submission page.

    To complete the peer review, students are required to leave at least one comment. If you include a rubric, they are also required to complete the rubric.


    • To learn how assignment and peer review due dates appear in a student's To Do list, view the Peer Review Tips PDF.
    • Peer reviews cannot be used with External Tool assignments.
  • You can view Quizzes in your course by accessing the Quizzes page. Learn how to view each type of quiz that may appear in your course.

    Note: Your instructor may choose to hide the Quizzes link in Course Navigation. If the Quizzes link is not available, you can still access Quizzes through other areas of Canvas.

  • Editing the Syllabus allows you to add text and link files, images, and other course content in your Syllabus Description.

    Notes: Image files do not have a preview option when added as a file link through the Rich Content Editor.

  • You can create online assignments for students to submit their assignments through Canvas.

    When allowing file uploads as an online entry option, you can restrict certain types of files for assignment submissions. In the case of restricting assignments with an odd or unusual file type, try adding it to your course to confirm the file is accepted before requesting students to submit the file type.

    If your institution has enabled Google Docs, the Google Apps LTI, or the Microsoft Office 365 LTI, students can upload files from their respective Google Drive or OneDrive account directly. (If only Google Docs are enabled for your institution, students must connect to Google Drive as a web service to submit an assignment as a Google Doc, Google Sheet, or Google Slide.) You can allow Google Drive and OneDrive files as submission types by selecting the File Uploads checkbox when creating an assignment.

    Google Drive File Types

    Students can submit Google Doc (.gdoc), Google Sheet (.gsheet), or Google Slide (.gslide) files. They can also use Google Docs to submit uploaded Word (.doc/.docx), Excel (.xls/.xlsx), PowerPoint (.ppt/.pptx), and PDF files not converted to Google Docs formatting.

    When Google file types are submitted as an assignment submission, those files will convert to their Microsoft counterpart file types and appear in the submission as respective Word, Excel, or PowerPoint files. Canvas uses the conversion file type for submissions (and to render supported file types as Crocodoc files in SpeedGrader), so if you want to restrict file types to only include Google file types, you must also include the file types for each respective Microsoft file type as well. For instance, if you want to only allow Google Slide submissions, you must include .pptx as a restrictive file type, otherwise Canvas will not show the .gslide files in the Google Doc tab.

    Turnitin File Types

    If your institution has enabled Turnitin, you can create a Turnitin assignment. Turnitin accepts various file types and images.

  • When you create an assignment, you'll add details for the assignment such as the description, file submission types, and point value.

    If you create an assignment shell, you must edit the assignment to add the assignment details.

    Assignment settings are persistent to always remember and display the settings created or edited in the previous assignment in the course. Please note that this feature only applies to settings; it does not include assignment due dates.

    Note: When Multiple Grading Periods are enabled in a course, assignments are also respected against closed grading periods. Some attributes may not be available to editing.

  • You can easily import quizzes from programs that create QTI files. If a program does not create QTI files, it cannot be imported into Canvas.

    QTI files can be created from a variety of different learning management systems and software:

    • Quizzes created in Respondus 4.0 (Windows software) can be exported as QTI packages. To learn how to use Respondus 4.0 refer to this user guide (DOC). A QuickStart guide for Respondus 4.0 is also available (PDF).
    • Quizzes created in Blackboard (WebCT, Angel) can be exported as QTI packages.
    • Quizzes created in Moodle can be exported as QTI packages. Note: This will work with Moodle 2.0 or older versions. However, Moodle 2.1 and newer versions no longer export QTI packages.

    Note: Canvas supports QTI versions 1.2 and 2.1.

    Hva er Rubrikker?

    Rubrics are a way to set up custom or Outcome-based assessment criteria for scoring.

    A Rubric is an assessment tool for communicating expectations of quality. Rubrics are typically comprised of rows and columns. Rows are used to define the various criteria being used to assess an assignment. Columns are used to define levels of performance for each criterion.

  • Canvas is built on open web standards and uses minimal instances of Flash, so most features are supported on mobile devices. With the growing use of mobile devices, instructors should build their courses with best practices for mobile in mind.

  • Arc can be used as a standalone product, but its strength lies in its integration power. Arc integrates with Canvas and allows instructors to seamlessly integrate media interaction into the classroom.

    When Arc is integrated with Canvas, all Arc users can use Arc as an external tool through the the Rich Content Editor. The Rich Content Editor is part of multiple features in Canvas including Assignments, Discussions, and Pages. For students, the Rich Content Editor is also available in course groups and in Text Entry assignment submissions.

    By default, embedded media files allow comments to be added, though comments can be removed based on user preference.

    Note: Depending on your user role, not all Arc functionality may be available through the Rich Content Editor. If your Global Navigation Menu includes a link to Arc, you can manage videos at any time directly through an Arc account. Instructors can also access Arc through the Course Navigation Menu.
