Canvas for Teaching Assistants

If you are a teaching assistant (TA), you may need to submit grades, respond to student work, make edits to online courses, organize files, or add users for a course in Canvas.

TAs need to be aware of the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act, or FERPA. This is a federal law about the privacy of student grades and other records. Please carefully review this FERPA information from the Registrar.

No matter whether you are using Canvas as a student or as TA, the Learning Innovations & Design Desk online or in Rose Library can answer your Canvas questions. We’re here to help!
