PILOT (2021-22)

These instructions are for Ferris professors explaining how to import PILOT into their Ferris courses


These instructions are for PROFESSORS only. Students cannot add PILOT to Canvas themselves; it must be added to your course. If you have questions, please contact Stacy Anderson at

PILOT is now in Canvas Commons

All PILOT modules as well as the pre- and post-tests are now located in the Canvas Commons so that it can be fully integrated in your Canvas course shell.

Both the pre- and post-tests as well as the unit quizzes are set as practice quizzes with zero points. If you would like to assign grades and/or points to the quizzes, you may modify that information after you import the module into your Canvas shell.
