Learning Tools Interoperability (LTI) allows you to integrate MasteryConnect with Canvas. Once your administrator sets up an LTI connection for your school or district, you will be able to deliver assessments in MasteryConnect through Canvas.
- If an institution’s instance of Canvas is already connected to MasteryConnect and is using it as an external tool submission type, a Canvas admin will need to remove their institution’s MasteryConnect integration.
- Some Canvas accounts will have an upgraded MasteryConnect and Canvas LTI Integration, which has an improved workflow for creating and delivering assessments. For more information about the new upgraded integration, contact your account administrator or CSM.
In Canvas, open the course to which you would like to add the assessment. Click Assignments.
Click the Add Assignment button.
Now, enter the title of your assessment in the Assignment Name box.
