CASA Campus Services (CCS) - University of Houston
Skip to main content


CCS is an auxiliary system that is built on top of Canvas. Instructors use CCS as an add-on to Canvas. Canvas is used to manage their courses and their gradebooks, and CCS provides additional functionality. Their students use CCS to schedule proctored exams in the CASA Testing Centers, take proctored exams in the CASA Testing Centers, take online quizzes, and complete EMCFs.

Login to CCS


CCS contains features that enhance the experience of users that use Canvas in the following ways:

  • Giving instructors grade reports for assignments given in CSS.
  • Allowing instructors to upload exam and quiz content from CASA Courseware for previous courses directly to CCS.
  • Allowing instructors to upload new exam and quiz content to CCS using the traditional zip file format traditionally used with CASA Courseware.
  • Allowing instructors to easily copy content from place to place within CCS.
  • Allowing instructors to upload grades from CCS to Canvas.

New features are regularly added to CCS, and will be announced as they become available. Instructors and instructional designers are welcome to make requests.
