The Benefits of CommonLit’s Canvas Integration

Easy Rostering to Save Teachers' Time

With CommonLit’s Canvas integration, teachers can seamlessly set up their digital classes on CommonLit. When teachers log into CommonLit, they will be prompted to import their class rosters from Canvas.

Completing Lessons in Canvas

Another way that CommonLit’s Canvas integration saves teachers time is by allowing teachers to directly post any CommonLit lesson to Canvas for their students.

Here’s how this works:

Teachers will go to CommonLit and choose the lesson or assessment that they want to assign to their students. Once they have created an assignment on CommonLit, they’ll have the option to link the assignment to Canvas.

Teachers can post any lesson from CommonLit to their Canvas classes.

From there, students will be able to complete their CommonLit assignment directly from their Canvas account. Students will still be able to use all of CommonLit’s great interactive features, such as our Read Aloud and Translation tools, directly in Canvas!

Finally, with CommonLit’s Canvas integration, teachers have the option to send grades from CommonLit to their Canvas grade book. Teachers will also have the ability to customize the weight of an assignment and can choose the number of points that students earn for their CommonLit work!
