To create a Perusall assignment and sync it to Canvas:
Students must access the Perusall assignments by clicking through from Canvas. Accessing assignments directly in Perusall will prevent the student’s score from properly synching to Canvas.
The following video demonstrates this process.
All students will initially be placed in Group 1 within Perusall. After a student launches Perusall, they will be relocated to a group within Perusall matching their group in Canvas. Any student not assigned to a group in Canvas will remain in Group 1 in Perusall.
To synch the Canvas groups to Perusall:
To check your Perusall assignments in student view, you must use the Perusall Student View. The Canvas feature will not pass through to Perusall.
To enable Perusall Student View:
When you do this, Perusall will create a temporary student account and log you in to that account. When you are done, log out or close your browser window. You can then log back in to your instructor account.
