When Course Evaluations & Surveys is integrated with Instructure Canvas LMS, you can utilize the Canvas Gradebook feature to encourage students to complete their course evaluations.
The Canvas Gradebook feature provides the ability to assign a specific number of points for completed surveys, and then automatically have a Gradebook item generated with the corresponding points added for each student who has completed a specified survey.
NOTE: To utilize the Canvas Gradebook feature, the CES Administrator must enable it at the Account-level.
