Add Mastery Tracker to Canvas Course

How do I use a Mastery Connect tracker in a Canvas course?

Jordan School District uses Canvas LMS,  you can link a Mastery Tracker to a Canvas course. You can also create Mastery Connect assessments from within a Canvas course, which creates an assignment in the Canvas course. Trackers can be linked to single Canvas courses as well as cross-listed courses with multiple sections.

Once this connection is made, you will have access to the Mastery Tracker in your Canvas course. This includes access to mastery data, assessments built with 3rd-party item banks, and tools to support competency-based learning.


  • In order to link a mastery tracker to your Canvas course, your Instructure Customer Success Manager (CSM) must first set up an LTI connection between your instances of Canvas and Mastery Connect. If you do not see the Mastery Tracker link in your Canvas Course Navigation, contact your CSM.
  • Parents with a Mastery Connect account may be able to view their student's Mastery Connect trackers and assignments in Canvas if this feature is enabled in their district.
  • If you edit your Mastery Tracker or your Canvas course, your tracker and course will automatically sync overnight. If your tracker and course need to sync immediately, you can sync them manually.
  • If necessary, you can unlink a tracker or move a tracker to another course.
