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

You can view the details for a student's submission by accessing the assignment from the student's Grades page. The submission details page shows you how a student views their assignment submissions and feedback in Canvas.

On the submission details page you can view the time the assignment was submitted, any comments left on the submission, and preview and download the submission. You can also leave comments about the submission, including leaving a comment for an individual student on a group assignment.

View Submission Details Page

In the submissions details page you can view details about the assignment submission.

In the submission details area [1], you can view the time the assignment was submitted, the student's grade, and a link to view the rubric, if attached.

In the submission area [2], you can download a copy of the submission or view feedback on the submission in DocViewer.

In the sidebar [3], you can view comments left on the assignment by you, other graders, or peer reviewing students. You can also add a new comment or attach a file.

View Group Submission Details

For group assignments, the submission details page may include additional comments added to a group assignment [1].

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, from the submission details page, you can leave comments for an individual student on a group assignment 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 [2].
