Is there any way to create a comment bank in Canvas?

Jump to solution

One of the features that teachers love in Turnitin.com is the ability to use pre-made comments on student writing and to add comments to a comment bank. It would be awesome to have a comment bank on the right side of the speed-grader when grading student writing. Entire writing/ELA departments could share a comment bank per a department focus. You could have comment banks per type of writing submitted. You could even have a comment bank for presentations or other types of assignments.

This would be so much faster than writing the same comment over and over.

Does anyone know of a work-around or hack for this until Canvas creates a feature like this?

Thanks

Hi dtheriault​,

Currently there is not but it is a feature we are interested in developing and are currently researching - no commitments as of yet but it is something on our radar.

Hi dtheriault, as  @scottdennis ​ has stated, this feature is in the "Gathering Info" stage, and you can read the feedback (and add your own!) here:

dtheriault​ come to the Canvas Studio: Speedgrader 2.0​ space and checkout the plans as they are being drafted. There's been some great ideas and discussions here that I think you will want to join in on.
