Canvas: Tricks and tips for using Speedgrader

Tricks and tips in Speed Grader:

  1. Use J to go forward a student, and K to go back (on your keyboard). Here are a list of shortcut keys to use in Speedgrader.
  2. Set assignments as complete/not complete if they are just check in assignments. That makes grading much faster.
  3. Use the annotation tools to comment directly on a document. When a document opens, you can use any tool, and a comment box opens on the right.
  4. Add audio or video comments.
  5. Orange dots mean they need to be graded. Grayed out names means they haven’t submitted. Use the drop down list to go directly to the ones needing grading.
