What do comments from the SpeedGrader™ look like inside Old Conversations?

Canvas places SpeedGrader™ comments in Old Conversations for easy reference. Canvas adds comments to the student’s Inbox as a new message and the instructor’s Sent folder as part of a threaded conversation. Comments will not appear at the top of an instructor’s Inbox unless the student responds.

Note: SpeedGrader™ comments do not appear if other users are part of the comments thread, such as in a group assignment.

Assignment comments are slightly indented and placed inside the expanded view of a Conversation. The block shows all assignment comments exchanged between the instructor, peer reviewers, and a student. The Assignment name is listed at the top in bold [1]. To link to the SpeedGrader™, click the pop-out link next to the Assignment name [2]. The score for the Assignment appears just below the message date [3].
