Does Canvas allow a professor to attach a file to the grading comments? All I see is a text box. I use a Word rubric to grade assignments which I need to post for each student.
Hi Larrie Ferreiro
If you're marking an assignment in the SpeedGrader, underneath the box for text comments you should see buttons to attach files and media as described here: How do I leave feedback comments for student submissions in SpeedGrader?
If you're not seeing those buttons, try using a different web browser to access Canvas as this can often make a difference when tools are not displaying correctly.
Oops; sorry, Steve Watts! I was called elsewhere for a sec and didn't realize you had already answered!
No worries, Ken. You added the extra advice on how to create a rubric that I forgot to include!
this helped, thanks.

Are there any plans for Canvas to give Gradebook the same capability to upload files with the instructor comments? That would be helpful beyond words.
Hi Larrie Ferreiro Welcome to the Canvas Community! Yes, you should always be able to do this, but make sure you are in SpeedGrader. Check this online lesson: How do I leave feedback comments for student submissions in SpeedGrader? If you're not sure how to get into SpeedGrader, check here: How do I use SpeedGrader? It's a wonderful tool.
And, just so you know, you can use a rubric that is created in Canvas rather than uploading your own. This is covered here: How do I add a rubric to an assignment? , among a few other places. While you indeed will have to re-create it essentially from scratch so that it is embedded in Canvas, it allows you to click in the rubric to grade a student and add comments within it, as well. A very cool feature! See How do I use a rubric to grade submissions in SpeedGrader? for more information.
Hope this helps, Larrie!
