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
