Canvas Observer Accounts for Parents & Guardians
Following the Canvas Observer Account Set Up instructions is the quickest and easiest way to create your Observer account. But we’re here to support you. Use the Password Reset Request form and we’ll set up your observer account within 24 hours.
Observers can see everything their scholar sees. The only difference? Participation.
It’s where you’ll find iA classrooms, get announcements and be able to observe your scholar’s classes just like they do. View the course, see submitted assignments, future assignments, scores & message teachers. The observer account is a key way to stay in-touch with student progress.
