Teaching with Canvas:

Feature Option (Not enabled by default) — Gradebook Student Group Filter

  • SpeedGrader can be filtered by student group via an option in course settings. When this feature is enabled, SpeedGrader will only load submissions from a selected group.
  • This feature is designed for large courses and helps manage submissions for an instructor or TA. Filtering submissions by student group also improves SpeedGrader loading times more efficiently than filtering submissions by section.
  • The Course Settings page displays an option for large courses to require viewing SpeedGrader by student group.
  • When this setting is enabled for the course, SpeedGrader requires a student group to be selected in the Gradebook filter before submissions can be viewed. The SpeedGrader link is grayed out until a student group has been set.

Student Experience

  • Navigation – Menu Visibility – the same changes as above.
  • No other updates.
