How does MagicMarker appear in the Learning Mastery Gradebook?

Student assessments are linked to the outcomes in your Canvas course. Each outcome is tied to a mastery threshold, and student percentage scores are matched against that threshold. Scores are also updated in the Learning Mastery Gradebook.  

Note: An outcome may already have existing scores in the Learning Mastery Gradebook because of aligned assignments and outcome artifacts.

Each outcome in Canvas is associated with a total point value [1] and a mastery threshold [2].

Assess Student in MagicMarker

When you assess students in MagicMarker using the outcome, MagicMarker takes the total number of outcome successes compared to the total number of items recorded in the app to create a percentage.

You can view the current percentage (and student progress) by tapping the student's profile picture.

Once MagicMarker has created the percentage for the outcome, Canvas applies that percentage to the outcome's total points to create a score in the Learning Mastery Gradebook.

In this example, the student earned 100% in MagicMarker (5 successes for all 5 recorded items). Canvas converted the percentage to the full 5 point value for the outcome. Because the mastery threshold for this outcome is 3 points, the student is awarded mastery for the outcome.

Reminder: Canvas calculates one total assessment percentage per day. So if you assess a student multiple times with an outcome in a single day, Canvas will take the total number of assessments and create one mastery score.  

Assess Outcome Over Time

When you assess a student over time, each day's worth of data factors into the student's overall percentage.
