Is there a way to format comments in speed grader?

Jump to solution

I'd like to create bullet paragraphs (or bold or italicize or tab, etc.) when adding a comment on an assignment in SpeedGrader.  I don't see any menu of formatting options and wonder whether any keyboard shortcuts for formatting exist.

 @choms001 , greetings! No, unfortunately, there isn't. What I end up doing is space down a line and then put the number in parentheses like this (1) blah, blah (2) blah, blah... etc... This seems to draw there eye to my main points.

I have learned that the comments dialog box strips out return characters, so "spacing down a line" doesn't generate the paragraph breaks that would help with long comments.  This stripping out is true for both a line feed and for line feed with a carriage return (shift-return and return). Anyone know a way to force line feed that does not get stripped out?

@danaleeling  I'm with you on this one. I really wish the Speedgrader Comments would keep the spacing. It would really help my students clearly understand the main points of my feedback. Right now, all they get is a WALL OF TEXT. That cannot be considered "best practices."
