Add or Update Assignments in Canvas

After initially importing your WebAssign assignments to Canvas™, you can update Canvas with assignments you added or changed in WebAssign by importing an updated package of WebAssign assignments.

Reimport your WebAssign assignments if you have:

  • added assignments
  • removed assignments
  • changed assignment points

You might also want to reimport your assignments if you have changed assignment dates or names, but these changes will not affect scoring.

You do not need to reimport your assignments after granting extensions.

  1. Schedule or update your assignments in WebAssign.
  2. Download a package with your assignments and upload it to Canvas as described in Add WebAssign Assignments to Canvas.

New assignments in the WebAssign section are imported to Canvas. Existing assignment names, descriptions, point values and dates in Canvas are updated to reflect changes to the linked assignments in WebAssign.
