The Student View option in Canvas allows instructors to quickly check the appearance and function of the course as a student.
Using Student View generates a Test Student in your course. As the Test Student, you can view material, submit assignments, take quizzes, and receive grades.
To access the Student View:
Log-in to a Canvas course as an instructor.
Click Settings in the left course menu.
Click the Student View button.
The Student View opens in a magenta colored frame.
Click the Leave Student View button at the bottom of the page to return to the instructor view.
