Integrate MATLAB Grader with Canvas (Instructure)

Check for Existing MATLAB Grader Integration

The easiest way to find out if MATLAB® Grader™ has already been integrated with your LMS is to add a MATLAB coding problem to your course. See the next section for instructions.

If you cannot find the MATLAB Grader integration, or it is clear that MATLAB Grader has not been integrated yet, contact one of the resources in Help Resources.

Instructors: Add MATLAB Coding Problem to Course

If an administrator has already performed MATLAB Grader integration with Canvas®, you can proceed to add MATLAB coding problems to your course.

Follow Canvas instructions at for adding an assignment using an external tool

  • When searching for the external tool, look for "MATLAB Coding Problem" or "MATLAB Grader."

    Although we recommend "MATLAB Coding Problem" when integrating MATLAB Grader, the name given to the MATLAB Grader integration is decided by the administrator who did the integration. If you have difficulty finding the MATLAB Grader integration, contact one of the resources in Help Resources.

  • After you save the changes, Canvas launches the MATLAB Grader interface for copying and creating content.

  • You can create a new coding problem or select a problem from your available collections or courses.

For help, contact one of the resources in Help Resources.

Administrators: Add MATLAB Grader to Canvas Apps

To add "MATLAB Coding Problem" to Canvas Apps:

  1. Get Learning Tools Interoperability (LTI) credentials from MATLAB Grader . These values are required for adding content in Canvas.

    1. Using the top navigation, go to LMS Integration.

    2. Select Canvas from the drop-down list.

    3. Generate Key and Secret. Copy these values and the Launch URL.

  2. Follow these instructions from Canvas to Add App.

    • For Name, we recommend that you name the app "MATLAB Coding Problem" for easier discoverability by instructors at your institution who will be adding MATLAB coding problems to a course in Canvas.

    • For Consumer Key, enter the MATLAB Grader Key that you generated in step 1.

    • For Shared Secret, enter the MATLAB Grader Secret that you generated in step 1.

    • For Launch URL, enter the Launch URL obtained in Step 1.

    • Domain can be left blank

    • Set Privacy to Anonymous

    Click Submit when you have completed adding the app.

If you need assistance, contact one of the resources in Help Resources.
