Changes often force us to adapt in ways we’ve never experienced, which can be a major driver of personal (and even professional) growth and development.

Content & User Retention

Courses

Canvas courses will remain within the Cal Poly Canvas system for 20 quarters (5 years). Fall 2020 is the first quarter instructors had to teach with Canvas. Once Fall 2025 starts, sometime in late February - Fall 2020 courses will be deleted from Canvas.

Grades

Records/Information Retention Policies - Cal Poly Canvas will hold up to 20-quarters of course content and participation to help faculty save Gradebooks for five-years. Although not required, faculty can export/download a Canvas Gradebook and save to a secure location, such as (OneDrive). Faculty can also choose to download files for each Assignment and download the Classic Quiz results - click on Student Analysis to download file.  (New Quiz currently does not have an option to export results to CSV). 

Student Participation

Canvas courses and their student participation will remain within the Cal Poly Canvas system for 20 quarters (5 years). Fall 2020 is the first quarter instructors had to teach with Canvas. Once Fall 2025 starts, sometime in late February - Fall 2020 courses will be deleted from Canvas.

When a student graduates from Cal Poly, their access to Canvas will no longer work via the Portal (my.calpoly.edu) after eight quarters and their Canvas participation will remain in Canvas for 5 years. 

Migrated PolyLearn Courses

AY 2019-2020 (Fall 19-Sum 20) courses were migrated into the Cal Poly Canvas system and placed into the "Migrated" sub-account folder. All migrated courses will be deleted from Cal Poly Canvas at the end of Summer 2022.
