Assessment LTI




The Outcome Assessment LTI is an app to simplify the collection and assessment of student work samples within Canvas. Within the app, it provides users the ability to collect assessment objects from Canvas and assigns these assignments to a course assessor. All of these course submissions are submitted by “Assessment Users.”
