Creating GoReact assignments in Canvas

Please Note

The GoReact app must be installed by your Canvas administrator before you can add it to your assignments.  See our Administrator setup of GoReact in Canvas for more information.


For creating new GoReact assignments:

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."


    Don't see the GoReact Tool?

    If you don't see the GoReact tool listed here, please contact your Canvas administrator. See our Administrator setup of GoReact in Canvas guide for more information.

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

    Important Tip!

    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. Choose whether you will be creating a new assignment from scratch, copying from a previous assignment, or using an assignment template from your Library.  (See our Library - Assignment Templates guide for more information on using templates.)


  9. Select the additional assignment settings as needed. When you're finished, click "Done." 


  10. Once your assignment settings are saved, you should see the GoReact dashboard.  Seeing the dashboard lets you know you've successfully completed the setup process and the assignment is now ready for your students.
