Required Internship Course Content

Required Course Content

If you are visiting this link from your canvas course and the university-required course content (Supervisor Evaluation, Completion Assessment) have already been imported into your course, you can skip to the section, "After Content Import" .  The FAQ section is also useful if you have specific questions about the assignments.

The required course content is automatically imported into your internship course each semester.  This generally occurs about 1-2 weeks prior to the upcoming semester.  If you do not see content in your course (usually caused by a late-add course section, accidental deletion, or not publishing an assignment and/or module), please contact Martin Overly, Internship Services

Accidental Deletion or Missing Content

Visit the existing canvas internship course you would like to update.  In the icon list on the left of your screen (courses, calendary, inbox, etc.), select the commons icon (see below).  In the search bar of commons type "utah valley ".  You will then select "Utah Valley University Internship Courses (Import for Required Missing Content)". Do not select the Utah Valley University Internship Course Template unless you want both the required and optional assignments.   Next, check the box for your existing course and select "Import into Canvas" and Voilà!, the content has been imported.  Now see the section "After Content Import" below .  The FAQ section is also useful if you have specific questions about the assignments.

After Content Import

 

  1. Outdated Content: If you have similar, but outdated content in your course, you will want to delete the previous semester's Supervisor Evaluation and Completion Assessment content.  
  2. Imported Content Module:  Move the assignments to a new module/s or simply rename the current module.  Unless you are experienced with the assignment source code editor, we do not recommend editing the assignment pages for the required assignments as the pages have specific code that connects to your grade book.  
  3. Save and publish your content: Once you are satisfied with your course, ensure taht all appropriate modules and assignments are published.  A common error observed is the publishing of assignments but not the modules, so be aware of this! Finally, publish the course!  Congratulations! You are good to go!
 

FAQs and Troubleshooting

 

How does grading work for assignments? 

Completion Assessment: Canvas will automatically assign a 100% score after completion.

Supervisor Evaluations: For both the end of semester Supervisor Evaluation (required) and Mid-Term Supervisor Evaluation (optional), a 10% point value is assigned after the student initiates the assignment.  The grade will be changed to 100% score after the supervisor completes their portion of the evaluation.  You have the option of adjusting point values after completion.

Other Assignments:  All other assignments are graded by the course instructor.  

What if students are reporting technical issues with the assignments? An Internship Services department representative will work with the student to get any issues resolved.  Common problems include browser compatibility issues or in the case of supervisor evaluations, an organization's strict email security settings.  The learning agreement, completion assessment, and supervisor evaluation assignments all include a link to a Support Form that is managed through the Internship Services Department.  We do not expect you to try and solve any technical issues.  

Does my previous semester content get overwritten? No.  After import, go to your Assignments tab and you will see the differences in Assignment titles.  If the content you imported has the same title as your existing content, you will see the content much like you would on your computer if you saved a file under the same name.  Example: Assignment, Assignment-1, Assignment-2 (all reflecting the same assignment title). 

I have multiple copies of the same assignment in my course? If the content you imported has the same title as your existing content, you will see the content much like you would on your computer if you saved a file under the same name.  Example: Assignment, Assignment-1, Assignment-2 (all reflecting the same assignment title).  Compare them and delete any outdated content.  Check the semester in the assignment title, however, to ensure you aren't deleting the most recent version of the assignment. 

Why does my course suddenly look empty or misconfigured?

Depending on your current course settings, your course may look differently after content is added to your course. Your content is not deleted or moved.  To alleviate this, please go to the "Choose Home Page" setting on the right-hand side of the page and choose your desired view.  See image below.
