| This idea has been developed and deployed to Canvas |
When a student submits an individual paper, my comments to them are displayed right next to the submission and their comments to me are in the same place. When a student submits a group paper my comments are displayed but if they respond to me their comments are not displayed. It is a group submission- they worked on the paper together- the other students and I should be able to see the comment. If they want to send me a comment privately they can easily do that.
To find their comment I have to get the notification from canvas (or the angry email from the student), go to their grades, find that assignment, look at that comment, then look up which group they are in, open another tab to the assignment to understand how the comment relates to the assignment.
