Getting the most out of Outcomes in Canvas for goal-related grading criteria

Published Jun 02, 2021

The function Outcomes gives you as a teacher the possibility to use intended learning outcomes (ILO) with goal-related grading criteria in Canvas. You can connect your goals to different student activities, such as assignments, and leave feedback both with and without points to your students.

Getting started with goal-related grading criteria within Canvas

According to the principal's decision, goal-related grading criteria  must be introduced on all KTH courses with a graded grading scale. E-learning has developed a guide for how you, as a teacher, can get started with, align and use "Outcomes" to communicate the grading criteria of your course to your students.
