It would be nice to have grammar and spell checking within the Speed Grader viewer.
That would be incredibly useful for faculty grading written material submissions, David Spiel!
You have my vote!
I am an adjunct faculty and we only get paid for teaching time, grading, reviewing or anything above the classroom time, It would be so helpful, not to have to download 200 plus papers to grade, then re-upload them. Please help It would be greatly appreciated.
I should add that both the Chrome and Firefox browsers include a built-in spell checker. But it only works for documents in edit mode. Once something is submitted, it is no longer in edit mode, making this feature unavailable.
I just tried this to verify, and even with a text-entry submission, the browser spell check does not kick in.
This would be a great addition to SpeedGrader, although I do always caution about reliance on spellcheck tech - there is that whole "there, they're, their" thing that spellcheckers would never catch.
