Adding Perusall to your Course
Once your administrator has installed Perusall, it will typically appear as an option in the left navigation bar automatically; click this to launch into your Perusall course. If you do not see this option, add it by navigating to Settings > Navigation in Canvas and then dragging the Perusall option to the list of active navigation options (it may be towards the bottom of the list).
If you would like to automatically sync the average of all Perusall assignments to a single gradebook column in Canvas, launch into Perusall, select Settings > Scoring > Grade sync to LMS > Automatically sync students' average scores to LMS, and then click Save changes.
If you would like to sync individual assignment scores to multiple columns in the Canvas gradebook, launch into Perusall, select Settings > Scoring > Grade sync to LMS > Automatically sync students' scores to LMS, and then click Save changes.
Assignment-Specific (Deep links) Creation
In either case, there is no need to create individual Canvas assignments for each Perusall assignment; however, if you would like to do so, you can create Canvas assignments that are "deep links (assignment-specific links)" into the corresponding Perusall assignment. Navigate to Settings > Scoring > Grade Sync to LMS > LMS gradebook column management, set to Instructor creates deep links in LMS; no Perusall gradebook columns will appear in LMS until deep links have been created > Click Save Changes.
