Good morning, @BrianMorris1 ...

Yes, the Canvas SpeedGrader does have a small set of drawing tools for when you want to mark up a student's document that has been submitted. For example, here is a *.docx file that I submitted in my own sandbox course. Then, as an admin/instructor, I went to the SpeedGrader and used the drawing tools to make a smiley face on the document.

Here is a Guide on how you can use the annotation tools in your own course:

I hope this will help you! Let Community members know if you have any other questions about this...thanks!
