Canvas has a Student View feature available to those enrolled as Teachers, TA’s, and Course Designers. You can access the Student View button from the right sidebar menu of the Settings screen. For directors, click on How do I access Student View?
Use Student View to see the course as if you were a student in the course. While in student view the teacher can turn in assignment submissions and see grades and course content as a student would. “Test Student” cannot participate in discussions or be a member of a group. Student view also provides a Test Student in the grade book starting the first time you click on the Student View button. You can use Test Student’s row in the grade book to enter sample grades and see their effect.
The CTL Tip of the Week is brought to you by the William G. Jackson Center for Teaching and Learning (CTL). For more general information or help with Canvas at Michigan Tech, be sure to visit Canvas One Stop.
