One of the biggest factors to student success is whether students are able to manage their time efficiently. Canvas offers a fantastic way to sync personal calendars in i-cal and Google with Canvas assignments. To asses and encourage students use of this function, I compared a PSY 101 F:F course in which students were not provided instruction or calendar sync assignmet, to a SWU 102 course in which students were assigned a calendar sync assignment with instructions. Finding #1-Requiring the calendar sync significantly decreased the number of missed assignments (‘0’ grades). For students who did not sync, there were 10% missed assignments in both courses. Those who used the calendar sync had less than 3% missed assignments. Finding #2-Including specific instructions and graded sync assignment increased utilization by 40%. Finding #3-It is critical to include specific instructions on the calendar sync in your Getting Started module. It is an extremely helpful tool, and one that takes students, on average, 5 minutes to complete.
