How do I create and link a new tracker from a standard set in Canvas?

Updated Jul 10, 2021

If your institution uses Canvas LMS,  you can link a Mastery Tracker to a Canvas course. Your new tracker can be linked to Canvas courses that have one section or multiple sections.

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.

Note: Creating and linking a new tracker from a standard set in Canvas requires that your Canvas account and Mastery Connect account are synced via an SIS (student information system).
