Students' Guide to Canvas


The Assignments tool plays three important roles in Canvas:

  1. It contains assignments that may have due dates, online submission, and peer review;
  2. It contains other graded work in Canvas - graded discussions, graded quizzes and graded surveys (for completion);
  3. It contains assignments that you complete outside Canvas, so instructors can enter instructions or scores in Canvas.
