Finding The Speedgrader
With the new Canvas Gradebook in full operation, many are realizing that navigation through Canvas needs to change, and getting to the Speedgrader is one of those changes. There are several ways to access the Speedgrader. An efficient yet overlooked method is from the To Do list from the Dashboard. The To Do populates the name of the assignment and the number of assignments submitted to be graded. This example shows two submissions for the Welcome assignment are ready to be graded and one submission from the Motivation assignment is ready to be graded. In addition, clicking hyperlink immediately navigates to the assignment that needs graded. Once in a course, the Speedgrader can be accessed from Modules, Assignments and Gradebook by clicking on the name of the assignment. Also if accessing a student from the Grade Detail Tray, you can get to the Speedgrader from there as well. If you want to learn more about the Speedgrader or any other Canvas function, make an appointment with CTLE or come to an open lab (Monday-Thursday from 9:00 am-2:00 pm).
