When an assignment is set as a moderated assignment, the moderator can use the grade summary page to view all grades awarded by one grader. If anonymous grading is enabled for the assignment, the names of the students, grader—or both—may be displayed anonymously, respectively.

You can select grades directly in the grade summary page. You can choose to bulk apply all grades from the grader or set a custom grade. If the bulk apply button is not available in the assignment, assignment submissions have been graded by multiple graders and grades for each student must be selected individually.

Moderated assignments are automatically hidden in the Gradebook, and students cannot view any comments or grades until final grades are posted.

Notes:

  • Moderated grading is currently a course opt-in feature. To enable this feature, learn how to manage feature options in the course features lesson.
  • Moderated grades can only be managed directly through the grade summary page.
  • Students can only view comments in the submission that is selected for the final grade; they cannot view comments from any other provisional grade reviews. If you want to include any comments from additional reviewers, you will have to copy the comments manually into the submission selected for the final grade.
  • Individual graders can review comments within each submission at any time.
  • If a grader uses Canvas DocViewer annotations, students can only view the annotations in the assessment that was selected or copied as the final grade. In copied reviews, students can view the original reviewer's annotations as well as any annotations added by the moderator. Please note that if instructor annotations are marked as anonymous, instructor annotations and comments will not include the name of the instructor.
  • Once grades are released, the grade in the Grade Summary Page page cannot be changed; all content is considered read-only for historical reference. However, after final grades have been released, grades can be changed in the Gradebook, if necessary. The Gradebook History page records all grade changes in the Gradebook and can be accessed at any time.
