Outcomes in Canvas are a way for you to track your students’ progress as measured by pedagogical goals or student learning outcomes.
Assessments created to test student knowledge or to require students to demonstrate a specific skill resulting from a learning activity can be aligned to learning outcomes using rubrics (which can be used for grading simultaneously).
You can use Outcomes to:
- Focus students’ attention on the most important skills and activities in your course
- Run reports at the course level alignment between assessments and student learning
- Assess student progress through calculation methods
- Track student progress on a learning outcome
You can access the Outcomes page from the left side navigation menu. From this page you can add single Outcome or Outcome groups
Outcomes need a name, a more student-friendly name (optional) and a description.
Next you have to determine how you are going to assess assignments for outcomes
