How do I find State or Common Core Standards to add to a course?
All Outcomes created at the account level will be available to courses within the account. You can import Account, State, and Common Core Standards into your course. You can create nested outcomes by dragging and dropping outcomes to create structure. If your state does not appear in Outcomes for your course, please contact your Canvas Administrator.
- All Common Core Standards are available for Language Arts, Math, and Science (NGSS).
- All state specific standards for Core 4 subjects (Language Arts, Math, Science, and Social Studies) are available for states with current Canvas customers.
- The account or sub-account must have the standards imported first before courses can find and use them.
If your state does not appear in Outcomes or if your institution does not have access to Common Core or state standards, please contact your Canvas Administrator. Additionally, if you would like to use non-core standards for subjects such as PE, Health, Art, etc., please contact your Canvas Administrator.
This lesson explains how to find an existing State or Common Core Standard and add it to your course.
Click the Find button.
Choose between Account, State, and Common Core Standards to import. Account Standards are outcomes that have been created for an institution or organization to be used within that account, sub-account, and courses. State Standards and Common Core Standards are what educators use to assess students and what students should be learning.
Locate your state. If your state does not appear on the list, please contact your Canvas Administrator.
Because the State and Common Core Standards are nested outcomes, you can import entire folders into your course  or import a single standard. You can use the scroll bar to return to the State or Common Core Standards . Whatever is highlighted when you click the Import button  will be imported in to your course.
View State or Common Core Standard
As mentioned before, these standards are nested and you can import an entire folder or just one outcome at a time.
View the added Outcomes. Now the course will have the State or Common Core Standards you imported.
Note: The account or sub-account must have the standards imported first before instructors can find and use them in their courses.
