How do I link to an existing tracker in a Canvas course?

Updated

If your institution uses Canvas LMS,  you can link an existing mastery tracker to a Canvas course. Once this connection is made you will have access to your mastery tracker in a Canvas course, which includes mastery data, assessments built with third-party item banks, and tools to support competency-based learning.

Notes:

  • In order to link a mastery tracker to your Canvas course, your Instructure Customer Success Manager (CSM) must first set up an LTI connection between your instances of Canvas and Mastery Connect. If you do not see the Mastery Tracker link in your Canvas Course Navigation, contact your CSM.
  • To link to an existing tracker from Canvas, your Canvas and Mastery Connect accounts must be synced via a SIS (student information system).
  • To link correctly to a Canvas course, your existing tracker must be assigned to a classroom section in Mastery Connect.
  • If you edit your Mastery Tracker or your Canvas course, your tracker and course will automatically sync overnight. If your tracker and course need to sync immediately, you can sync them manually.
