How do I leave comments for students in the Gradebook?
Canvas recently introduced a new page design called the New Canvas User Interface (UI). Depending on your Canvas view, your page design may vary from the images shown in this lesson. However, the functionality and location of the components remain the same.
If you want to leave simple feedback for your students, you can leave a text comment directly in the Gradebook. Gradebook comments will be placed within the Discussion portion of SpeedGrader.
Note: You can also grade assignments from the comments window in the Gradebook. However, you cannot add a comment and assign a grade at the same time.
Where there is more than one comment for an assignment, comments will be listed in chronological order with the oldest comments appearing at the top and the newer comments appearing near the bottom .
Note: If you need to remove a comment, click the More Details in the SpeedGrader link  to view the assignment in SpeedGrader.
