The Canvas API provides a lot of access, including:
Logins and logouts with date/times
Assignments and assignment metadata and status
Assignment grades and feedback (the API also allows the lookup of rubrics for these grades). The API also provides a history of grade changes over time, which could be useful for assessing student progress.
Assessments and assessment results ("quizzes") administered by the LMS
