Formative & Interim Assessment 

Accurate, actionable data is the key to identifying levels of student understanding and adjusting teaching and learning accordingly. With Canvas, it's easy to quickly gather the data via in-class and benchmark assessments so teachers and admins can get to the important part: using it.

Equitable Blended Learning

As digital learning evolves, schools and districts need integrated technology that can keep up. Elizabeth Forward School District upholds its commitment to closing the digital learning gap by using Canvas to provide a connected learning experience—one where both teachers and students have equitable access to the teaching and learning tools they need to succeed, all in one centralized location.
