STARTING NOW, AN AMS IS NO LONGER A CLUNKY, INCONVENIENT, HARD-TO-USE, DISTRICT-MANDATED NECESSITY.
So you’re already using Canvas LMS as part of teaching and learning - teaching lessons, having discussions, submitting assignments, even doing assessment. So when it’s time for district benchmarking and you need to measure student achievement across classrooms and buildings, that’s when Canvas Assessment comes in. Canvas Assessment combines the same powerful quizzing engine used in Canvas, with easy-to-understand roll-up reporting, so admins can compare achievement across classrooms and buildings, and teachers can identify learning gaps and target instruction so that every student makes progress every day.
You’d think every AMS would give teachers continual access to student performance data so they could make quick relevant adjustments for more effective teaching. But not every AMS gives you the data you want when you want it. Canvas Assessment does by capturing and storing data, and then making it accessible via easy-to-understand, actionable reports - in the same place, whenever you need it. See what students understand (and what they don’t) and what they need next, so teachers can respond with real data-driven instruction for every student.
LINK ASSESSMENT TO LEARNING
It’s pretty simple: teachers teach, students learn, teachers then assess and iterate based on the results. Linking assessment to learning is key and technology should facilitate it, not get in your way. With all the data from your classroom assessments, common assessments, and district-wide assessments in the same place, Canvas Assessment gives teachers and admins a holistic picture of student performance, and the data needed to increase performance even more. And that's why instruction and assessment go hand-in-hand.
DISTRICT-WIDE BENCHMARKING MADE EASY
What if you could deploy the same assessment to an entire grade level? And what if you could monitor student progress, adjusting and personalizing as you go to improve both teaching and learning? With Canvas Assessment, you can deploy not only benchmark assessments, but quick formative assessments targeted quizzes to see student understanding, and then use that data to differentiate instruction to each student’s individual needs.
Canvas Assessment is easy for students. No login nightmares; no online testing confusion. With its clean and easy to navigate interface, Canvas Assessment makes it simple for students to take assessments. And with student-focused reporting, students know exactly where they are and are motivated to get to where they need to be.
What happens when it’s benchmarking time and everyone is testing? Canvas Assessment scales to meet demand, even at times of peak usage, working as well for a classroom as for an entire district. And it does it all securely, keeping your institution’s data safe with secure networks and the latest security patches.
CANVAS ASSESSMENT IMPROVES BOTH TEACHING AND STUDENT ACHIEVEMENT
Canvas Assessment changes the face (and results) of the assessment landscape by understanding that assessment is not enough. You need assessment that delivers actionable data that can be used to impact teaching and learning. You need assessment that improves student achievement. And it would be nice if it were a one-stop learning and assessment tool—scalable, easy to use, easily customizable, with a modern, intuitive user experience. Canvas Assessment is all of that and more.
