How do I view a student's Grades page in a course?

As an instructor, you can access the Grades page for a student in your course. This Grades page shows you how a student views his or her grades in the course and also allows you to add individual comments to group submission assignments. You can choose to restrict options in the grades page to students, such as hiding grade summary totals and grade distribution graphs.

You can also view the grades page for a generic student in Student View.

Notes:

  • The student's grades shown in the Grades page may vary from the grades shown in the Gradebook. The student's Grades page is affected by muted assignments, outstanding manually graded quiz questions, and weighted assignment groups. The Gradebook always contains the most current and accurate information about a student's current grade.
  • Student Grades can also be viewed from a student's user details page.

View Assignment Details

View Assignment Details

You can also view assignment details, preview assignments, and view feedback the same way a student experiences assignments in Canvas. The assignment details page is also where a student views any annotated feedback you may add to an assignment in Crocodoc.

To view submission details, click the name of the group assignment. Learn more about how students view assignment feedback.

View Group Assignment Comments

For group assignments, the submission details page may include individual comments added to a group assignment.

By default, group assignments that award the same grade to all group members do not display any individual comments when grading group assignments in SpeedGrader. Likewise in SpeedGrader, you cannot add comments for an individual user in a group assignment.

However, the assignment details page allows you to leave individual comments for the student in group assignments where all members get the same grade. To reply to the student (and not all group members), do not select the Send Comment to the Whole Group checkbox.

Individual comments also appear in the Submission Comments filter in Conversations.
