Canvas operates on a monthly release cycle through which features are added or updated. Courseware Support posts highlights from Canvas’s production release notes, a link to these notes, and other relevant content to the Canvas at Penn a few days before the production release, which usually occurs on Saturdays. Please contact Courseware Support at if you have any questions about an upcoming production release.

July 16, 2022 Production Release Highlights

  • Improved Outcomes Management
    • Average Calculation Method: This update allows admins and instructors to use the Average method to calculate a final outcome score as a simple, unweighted average of all item scores for that outcome. For accounts implementing strict Mastery- or Competency-Based Education models, the Outcome Average Calculation Method feature option flag can be disabled. When this flag is disabled, average will not display as a calculation method option when users create or edit outcomes and will not be accepted in a .csv upload.

Other Updates

  • Penn’s licenses for Piazza & BlueJeans Meetings ended on June 30, 2022. To comply with these changes, these tools have been uninstalled from Canvas.
