Is there a way to let Teaching Aides grade assignments with limited access?

Jump to solution

I have several teacher's aides that I would like to utilize as graders to help with my work load. Is there a way to add them with limited grading access so that they can only grade assignments and not have full access to grades? i.e. I won't give them my account log in to grade assignments as me.

Tyler,

The TA role in Canvas does some of what you want.  It will allow them to log in with their own accounts and have access similar to yours.  They will be able to grade assignments, but they will also have access to the full gradebook. Permissions on the TA role can be modified, but it takes an Admin to do that.  Here is a link to the Admin area that talks about Roles and Permissions https://community.canvaslms.com/docs/DOC-10895#jive_content_id_Roles_and_Permissions 

One thing to know is that the Canvas Gradebook does keep a full audit trail of changes to Grades. So if you have concerns about TAs being able to grade but possibly changing something else they shouldn't, there would at least be a log of it.

Hi Tyler,

Have you seen this document?  https://community.canvaslms.com/docs/DOC-12636-421473660 

 You might want to talk to your Canvas Admin to see what permissions your institution grants to TA's.
