The Canvas LMS (Learning Management System) facilities the creation, management and distribution of assignment activities using its fully integrated tools. Canvas supports effective assessment for learning and provides many features and benefits, including:

  • Increased time-on-task with an efficient way to view and submit assignments
  • Easier implementation of alternative assessment techniques such as case studies, problem-based learning exercises, essays, research papers and group projects
  • Promotion of active learning by requiring learners to analyse, synthesise, and evaluate course content
  • Rubrics and examples as part of the assignment to let learners know how they will be evaluated
  • Use of an iterative review process between learners and instructors
