Teaching with Canvas

  • Postable Submission Comments
    •  For assignments with a manual posting policy, comments can be posted without requiring a grade.
    • In manual posting policy assignments, instructors can create comments in New Gradebook or SpeedGrader for a student submission and make them visible to students.
    • Once a comment is submitted, the Post Grades button can be used to post comments the same way as posting grades. The New Gradebook displays all submissions that will have grades and/or comments displayed to students, per the updated wording next to each posting option.
  • Sort Options within Grades
    • The Student Name column includes additional sorting options.
    • This change allows users to sort the New Gradebook by student name, SIS ID, Integration ID, and Login ID in ascending or descending order.
    • As part of sorting the Student Name column, instructors can select the Sort By option and not only sort by student name, but also by SIS ID, Integration ID, or Login ID. Each option can be ordered in ascending or descending order.

Student Experience

  • A new assignment submission workflow is being developed.
    •  This change improves the student experience in completing and submitting assignments, viewing rubrics, and locating instructor feedback.
    • For full details about student assignment enhancements, please see the Canvas Release: Student Assignment Enhancements document.
    • The date of availability for ERAU is to be determined.
