Canvas Integration: Results

You can update the results and the VET outcomes (eBECAS only) for subjects/modules based on the results from Canvas courses. This will allow you to keep the academic records of your students up-to-date efficiently.

For this process to work, you need to first map the Canvas grades with the eBECAS/EDMISS results. If you have not done so, see the following link for instructions on how to do this mapping: Canvas Integration: Grades

  • Throughout this article, the term 'result' is used to refer to the results for a subject/module in eBECAS/EDMISS. 

  • The result for a Canvas course can be mapped with a result for a subject/module in eBECAS/EDMISS.

  • The result, result status, VET outcome (eBECAS only), mark and percentage mark for a subject/module in eBECAS/EDMISS can be updated based on the mapping of the Canvas grades. 

  • Only grades for Canvas courses that use a grading scheme can be mapped with a result, result status and VET outcomes for subject in eBECAS/EDMISS. For other grading options in Canvas, only the mark and percentage mark can be updated. 

  • The sync process for results is just one way. eBECAS/EDMISS gets the data but it does not create/edit/delete the scores or grades in the Canvas courses.

Configuration

There are some settings available to manage the sync of results between Canvas courses and BECAS/EDMISS subjects/modules. 
To explore these options:

  1. Go to Utilities > Setup Configuration.

  2. From the Setup Configuration window, go to Setup > Canvas LMS Integration.

  3. Go to the section: Assessments and Results. Setup the settings as required:

    • Sync for Classes current [ ] days back in history: You can set the range of days to sync with Canvas for the Sync All option in Canvas Element Search. You may select up to a maximum of 100.

    • Map Canvas Score to eBECAS/EDMISS Percentage Mark: If enabled, you can update the percentage mark for the subject result with the respective score from the Canvas Course. This setting will also determine the update of the percentage mark for the results at the assessment level (see Canvas Integration: Assessments for more details)
       

    • Map Canvas Score to eBECAS/EDMISS Mark: If enabled, you can update the mark for the subject result with the respective score from the Canvas Course. This setting will also determine the update of the mark for the results at the assessment level (see Canvas Integration: Assessments for more details).

    • Do not sync Assignments that do not count to final mark: If enabled, assignments in eBECAS will not synchronize with those in Canvas, even if the Do not count this assignment towards the final grade setting is selected in Canvas Assignment settings. If not enabled, assignments will be synchronized regardless of the Do not count this assignment towards the final grade setting in Canvas.

Sync Course Results

Permissions Required

Although the Canvas course results are sync on a scheduled basis, there are different methods that you can use to trigger this process manually (in most situations you will not need to trigger this process manually). 

  • The methods described below are only necessary when you cannot wait for the automated sync process to occur.

  • Syncing results will import the results for Canvas courses and will make them visible on the related subject result in eBECAS/EDMISS.

  • Syncing the results will import the results but it will NOT update the subject result and outcomes. To update the results and outcomes see the section Update Results.

Sync Results For All Students

Follow the steps below to sync the results for Canvas courses:

  1. Go to Utilities > Canvas > Canvas Elements.

  2. From the Sync Options side panel, click on Sync Results. This will import the latest results for the relevant courses in Canvas.
