Check / tick annotation

Jump to solution

Hi,

Is there any way to add a check (or tick) when annotating work in speed grader to indicate a correct response?

Update,  @andrew_abercrom ‌: I found a way to do this in Windows! Copy any one of the check marks from here and paste it in using the Freetext annotation tool. If you're using a clipboard manager in Chrome (such as ClipClip) you can keep your preferred checkmark there and other frequently used comments there for ready use.

Hi,  @andrew_abercrom ‌, and yes, this is possible. Use the Text tool in DocViewer to place an inline text annotation and key in a checkmark by using the keyboard shortcut Alt+V, like so: √

Hi Stefanie,

Thank you for your response. I tried to follow your suggestion but had no luck. I am viewing a submitted work in Speedgrader and clicked on the Freetext annotation, then pressed Alt V and nothing appeared. I tried using Area annotation as well but no luck. I would like to insert a checkmark to indicate correct answers, but my attempts with the free draw look like a two year olds checks. Thank you.

 @andrew_abercrom ‌, I agree that using the free draw tool is less than optimal.

And I learned something today. It turns out that the keyboard shortcut that is so easy on MacOS does not work in the Windows OS. Yesterday I tested it in Chrome using both a Windows keyboard attached to a Macbook Pro and the native keyboard that is attached to the laptop, and both times I was able to key in Alt V to produce this:

So this morning I fired up my Windows PC to have another look in both Firefox and Chrome—and sure enough, this keyboard shortcut does not work on my Windows device. I did some searching through various Unicode forums but wasn't able to find a satisfactory solution for Windows. (Maybe someone else here has figured it out?)

The only thing I can suggest for now is that you support the feature idea that requests a symbol palette for DocViewer. You'll find it here: https://community.canvaslms.com/ideas/9050-docviewer-default-palette-of-icons-images?sr=search&searc...

Amazing!!!! Thank you so very much. This will make students aware of the

effort made to ensure all their responses are read and considered.

Thanks, stefaniesanders‌! It lookls like these symbols can also be saved as Quickmarks for grading in Turnitin. I just created heart and check quick marks:
