Canvas Integration

If available, instructors and students can access WebAssign assignments from Canvas™.

Features

Basic integration between Canvas and WebAssign provides automatic rostering of students and single sign-on:

  • Students can open WebAssign from Canvas without signing in to WebAssign separately.
  • The first time each student opens WebAssign from Canvas, they are added to your WebAssign class roster.
Note:
  • Students can't open Canvas from WebAssign.
  • Students who drop the Canvas section are not dropped from the WebAssign section.
  • Students who transfer out of the Canvas section are not dropped from the WebAssign section.

Before You Begin

For all LMS integrations:

  • Set up integration at the start of the term, and only for WebAssign course sections with no enrolled students.
  • Turn off self-enrollment for your WebAssign course.

Requesting Canvas Integration

If Canvas integration is not shown under LMS Integration on the Class Settings page, submit an integration help request.

Note: Always follow your institution’s IT guidelines for requesting new external tools.
