It is important to communicate with students about any course objectives or expectations of the course. In Canvas, these are called learning outcomes. Within Canvas, you have the ability to add any course outcomes and attach a rubric to them in order to provide students with feedback and to track student proficiency towards that particular outcome. Within this feature you have the ability to customize the rubrics. You also have the ability to access any outcomes or standards which have been preloaded by your school or district, as well as any of the Math or ELA Common Core Standards.
