I wanted to check if the SpeedGrader in Canvas has a tool bar that allows instructors to give feedback to students in their assignment submissions.
If yes, I have not seen a tool bar with such a feature in my SpeedGrader since I started using Canvas after the transition to online learning. All I always see are a checkmark image, an eye image, and a wheel image in the toolbar section, along with the assignment name and due date.
As a result, I have been using Turnitin.com to provide feedback to students and then posting the grades in Canvas.
Tool bar in SpeedGrader
I don't know about a toolbar, but SpeedGrader is pretty powerful and flexible.
Here are a few videos that can give you a good idea of what it can do for you.
And one that covers SpeedGrader and Rubrics....
I added rubrics to my assignments. When I click in the rubric for full points or partial or change the total and then click save/submit, the total points does not go in the gradebook or the grade total box above the rubric.
I know its probably some random setting that I have wrong.
