Current Notifications sent from speed-grader

Community Explorer

I am an instructor and use the Comments in speedgrader to direct students to make corrections to a particular assignment. These show up on their home page under Current Feedback. I have 2 questions:

1)  Is there a setting that would allow students to check off/close these items after they have read it.

2) Is there a setting that would give me notifications when a student responds or make a comment on an assignment?
