The MagicMarker app is free and useful for when you want to quickly and easily determine in the classroom if your students meet or do not meet the expectations of an outcome. This app is advantageous for situations in which specific grade percentages are not appropriate.
You will first need to create the outcome of which you are going to evaluate your students in your actual Canvas account. For help, select the following link: http://guides.instructure.com/s/2204/m/4152/c/23857
The following steps will show you how to download, set up, and use the MagicMarker app. First, tap your App Store app and search for MagicMarker. You must search for it as one word in order to find the right app (MagicMarker, not Magic Marker).
