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

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:

  • If you are linking to an existing Mastery Tracker, your Canvas course can only have one section.
  • Linking to an existing tracker from MasteryConnect in Canvas requires that your Canvas account and Mastery Connect account to be synced via an SIS (student information system).
  • To link correctly to a Canvas course, your existing tracker must be assigned to a classroom section in MasteryConnect.
