How do I view student activity within a Group as an instructor?

Canvas recently introduced a new page design called the New Canvas User Interface (UI). Depending on your Canvas view, your page design may vary from the images shown in this lesson. However, the functionality and location of the components remain the same.

As an instructor, you can view what is happening in groups by viewing each user group.

Open People

Open People

In Course Navigation, click the People link.

View User Groups

Click the View User Groups button [1] or an existing group set [2].

Visit Group Home Page

Next to the group name, click the Settings icon [1]. Then click the Visit Group Homepage link [2].

View Student Activity

As the instructor, you can view all of the student activity within the group by clicking any of the group navigation links [1].

When viewing a student group, you can easily switch and view all groups within a group set by clicking the drop-down arrow next to the group name [1]. Also, instructors and student group leaders will see an Edit Group link [2] as part of the group dashboard. This link allows quick access to edit the name of the group.
