How do I view instructor comments on INDIVIDUAL quiz questions?

I'm an instructor who would like to point students to a help file that answers: "How do I view instructor comments on individual quiz questions?"

Editing this page seems logical to me: https://community.canvaslms.com/t5/Student-Guide/How-do-I-view-quiz-comments-from-my-instructor/ta-p...

The blue comment box at the top says: "While grading your quiz, your instructor may leave comments for the whole quiz. You can view these comments on the Grades page and on the Submission Details page."

I'm pretty sure the help page addresses only instructor feedback for the WHOLE quiz -- not INDIVIDUAL questions. I've read it several times. (But if I'm missing something . . . can someone point that out? And thanks.)

For my formative quizzes:

  • I often preload feedback and related information in the General Answer Comments (grey) field for individual quiz questions
  • I allow students to see correct answers after submitting ("right away")
  • I frequently make personalized comments on individual questions after a student has submitted a quiz.

That last bit is where some tweaking to the documentation would really help me. I know you can't make my students actually VIEW all my loving feedback (if only!) but jiggering the help page on this topic would be terrific.

PS: Here's an old thread, where this same question was posed, but answer refers only to feedback for the WHOLE quiz:

Good evening, @MsTia ...


That last bit is where some tweaking to the documentation would really help me. I know you can't make my students actually VIEW all my loving feedback (if only!) but jiggering the help page on this topic would be terrific.

It sounds like you are wanting to make a suggestion to enhance/modify a Canvas Guide here in the Community.  The Canvas Documentation Team does have a process to do this, but posting your suggestion here won't be seen by them (or at least, it might not be seen immediately).  At the bottom of each Guide, there is a link below the two red buttons ("Ask a Question" & "View Related Guides") to "share your feedback".  I would suggest that you fill out the form for that Guide with your above suggestion so that the Documentation Team can review it and make any needed changes.

I hope this will be of help to you.

Thanks for explaining where to best ask for documentation changes, Chofer. Appreciated. I'll get right on that.

For anyone finding this thread, I might have mentioned that students can see instructor comments on individual quiz questions simply by opening a submitted quiz (through Quizzes, Gradebook, or a Module if the quiz is located inside one). The comments look like this:
