Creating GoReact assignments in Canvas

(If you haven't set up the GoReact tool yet, please see the guide for Adding the GoReact app to Canvas before continuing.)

Here's a quick video if you'd like to see the assignment creation process in action.

  1. In Canvas, create an Assignment.
  2. Enter an Assignment Name, Points, and any other desired settings.
  3. Change the "Submission Type" to "External Tool."


  4. In the "Enter or find an External Tool URL" field, click "Find."  Select GoReact and then click "Select."


  5. Check the box for "Load This Tool In A New Tab."

    Please Note

    For the best overall experience, we highly recommend loading the GoReact tool in a new tab.

  6. Finish the assignment setup, then choose "Save" or "Save and Publish."
  7. Open your new assignment in Canvas by clicking the button to load assignment in a new window:


  8. Select the GoReact assignment type you wish to use for this assignment (or copy a previously created assignment).


  9. Select the additional assignment settings as needed. When you're finished, click "Done" and you're all set!  For more on GoReact assignments see our other documentation on Assignments.
