Hi- I would like to grade papers on my bus ride (no wifi) using the teacher app. Is this possible?
Thanks in advance,
Hi Jeneen Hill ~
Right now, with Canvas Teacher, a wifi connection is required to access student submissions. However, there is a feature idea open for voting: Offline Grading in Speedgrader. It's been in the Canvas Community for a while, but please vote and add your comments.
April 2016 update from Peyton Craighill AdminFantastic idea, and I understand why it would be so useful. Unfortunately, it isn't an easy change (~2 people for ~2 months per mobile platform), and it's really unlikely that we'll get to this within a year. I'll archive this idea now and reopen it if/when there's an update to give.

The availability of offline content has appeared in the Canvas Mobile Users Group in the past. There's even a poll How do you feel about offline content for Canvas Mobile?
If you're interested in grading offline, but are okay with working outside of Canvas Teacher, there are some options with "bulk downloads" and annotations apps. Let me know if you'd like me to share some ideas.
Hi- I would love ideas- would it be possible to use the rubrics I have associated with the assignments?
Jeneen Hill, does your school use Turnitin? If so, the Turnitin iPad app can do what you want: Grade offline using a Turnitin rubric associated with the assignment.
Were you able to find an answer to your question? I am going to go ahead and mark this question as answered because there hasn't been any more activity in a while so I assume that you have the information that you need. If you still have a question about this or if you have information that you would like to share with the community, by all means, please do come back and leave a comment. Also, if this question has been answered by one of the previous replies, please feel free to mark that answer as correct.
I too desperately want the ability to download assessment tasks on my windows laptop and mark off-line. If this functionality is available please point to the instructions.
I think this really needs to be revisited and made a top priority!
I really hope this is just old information and that offline grading is either already available or is being worked on. Anyone know? The interface with TurnItIn is much better this year, but if I still need to use the TurnItIn app to do my offline grading, I won't be using Canvas for submission or the gradebook, because doing so will confuse students even more. Students need to know where to go to see assignments, submit them, and see feedback all in once place, so it needs to be either Canvas or TurnItIn.
Unfortunately this is still the case - extremely frustrating! I hope they are working on it!
I've never tried Turnitin, but I have weekly discussion boards in Canvas and would like to be able to grade them offline.
