Allow students to edit submitted assignments?

Jump to solution

I am grading student submissions, and for some of them, I would like to allow students to read my comments and revise their submissions. However, I cannot figure out how to allow students to do this. Is there a setting that I have to change?

Thank you.

Hi  @cally_trosclair ‌

Students can submit, resubmit, and resubmit again and again and again to an assignment.

Once a student does resubmit, they are not longer able to view previous submission, but you as a teacher can using the submission drop-down in SpeedGrader.  This is very handy for assignments as you have described. I know of teachers who use it for three or more stages of essay writing (outline, draft, final etc.), and who use grading rubrics with criterion sections for each stage.

You can learn more about viewing prior submissions to the same assignment at:https://community.canvaslms.com/docs/DOC-13088-415255024 

You can control when you want to stop them from submitting again using the available until date. So as long as you have the assignment available to the students, they can continue to submit.

I hope this helps,

Kelley

Hello, I was just searching for this topic and this thread came up. However, I don't feel this issue is solved as there isn't a way for students to go in and revise their work -- just start again and resubmit. Right? I'm talking specifically about a writing assignment where just little things here or there need to be changed. Is there a way for students to access their prior submission and revise that and resubmit?

I would also like to be able to do this with my students.
