Advanced Integration for Canvas

Advanced integration is available for testing by request. It provides additional features, including score syncing to Canvas™.

Important: Verify that advanced integration works in your environment before committing to use it widely.

Advanced integration provides the following features in addition to those of the basic integration:

  • You can add your WebAssign assignments to Canvas.
  • Your students access WebAssign assignments via the corresponding Canvas activities.
  • Your students' scores on WebAssign assignments are synced back to the corresponding Canvas activities.
Note:
  • Assignment scores are synced to Canvas as percentages, so points shown in Canvas might not exactly match the points in WebAssign.
  • Calculated category averages and grades are not synced.
  • Make any adjustments or overrides to assignment scores in WebAssign, not in Canvas.

    Changes to WebAssign assignment scores made in Canvas are overwritten when scores are synced from WebAssign.
