How do I get submissions to go into the gradebook for all members of a group?
Hi Laura Cantu - Assuming it was an online/file submission type of assignment, this should be happening automatically, but what I think you may be asking is how to show individual, student-specific submissions and the answer is you cannot. By default, any group assignment is treated by Canvas as, well....a group effort, so the first one to submit on behalf of the group is what you will see in SpeedGrader. This is explained in the first bulleted Note in the blue section at the top here: How do I assign an assignment to a course group?
If another group member submits, that will cause the most recent submission to appear in SpeedGrader, though you will still have access to all earlier submissions courtesy of the Submission to view: drop-down menu at the top, as illustrated under the Evaluate Multiple Submissions heading on this lesson: 4152,55024 However, as explained on the 4152,55006, even if the checkbox for assigning grades to each student individually was enabled when creating the group assignment, "the submission will still apply for each group member's assignment." In other words, Canvas will not differentiate who submitted what.
A group assignment--the way it is done in Canvas--is NOT a place for individual submissions. Faculty at my own institution have made this mistake a few times, so you would not be alone if this is what you're asking. The only "solution" would be for each individual group member to have his/her name at the top of their own unique submission. But again, it's really not the best way to do this.
I hope this helps a bit, Laura...and that I understood your question correctly.
Thank you for your response to my question. It was helpful. I was able to
get help from a colleague yesterday. As I suspected, it was a user issue!
I neglected to check "this is a group assignment" when I created
the assignment. I have done this successfully in the past, I just missed
this step when setting up this assignment.
Thank you for your time and assistance,
Glad I could help a bit, Laura. Feel free to ask things as they come up; this is a very friendly Community!
