Resizing Comment Area in Speedgrader Causes Previews to Start Wrong Size

Jump to solution

Basically what the title says.

I use Speedgrader to grade assignments. Most submissions are PDFs; a few are .txt files and a few are screenshots. I use a rubric, so the comments section on the right is way too small for me by default and I resize it at the start of every grading session. When I move to the next student submission, the resizing sticks (yay!) but rather than the preview being sized to match, it instead is sized for its original larger panel and cut off on the right. I "solve" the issue by grabbing the mid-line as if I'm about to resize again and wiggling it, but I would love to not have to do this!

Ron ( @bowmanr ), if I'm reading what @AlexiBrooks wrote correctly, that's not something that QuizWiz will fix. It does a lot of things, but it doesn't adjust the size of the preview pane or the size of the comments within the rubric criteria.

I've not experienced what Alexi is talking about unless I drag the rubric very wide (and the preview very small). I do have a 1920x1080 monitor and it doesn't become a problem until I reach about 40% preview and 60% SpeedGrader. Most of the time, though, it does re-adjust the size for me, so I wonder if there is a sweet-spot (or sour spot) where it's an issue.

Thanks for your replies! If I'm understanding correctly, you've both been able to replicate the issue but none of us has a solution yet. (Other than I suppose getting a new and larger monitor!)

@AlexiBrooks -

There is a solution - provided you are not adverse to installing a javascript on your browswer - and providing you are allowed to at your institution.

The following script is one of my all time favorite canvancements by @James .

You will find some of the other options very helpful as well - read through the description with what it does for you.

The rubric canvancement you want is under his QuizWiz (In quizzes) area.  Install tampermonkey, then click on the install script links and select the quiz-wiz rubrics_user.js

This script will help with grading classic quizzes as well.  However, with rubrics, when you start typing in the comment box, the comment box automatically expands.  Also, this canvancement adds in a little arrow next to the save button - use that arrow to save, advance to the next student and open the rubric for that student.

Yes Canvas needs to do something like what James has done with a lot of his Canvancements, but until they do it is nice having his scripts.

I hope this helps.

@James -

Thanks.  I went back and re-read the post, and I misinterpreted what was being asked.

I went and looked at one of my projects I graded and I can duplicate what @AlexiBrooks is witnessing just like James said he could.  It seems to be in the percentage break between 30% - to 40% for the assignment and 60-70% for the rubric.  If you are in the 30-40% range for the assignment, then it displays in the larger view until you increase or decrease the assignment view width outside of the 30-40% range - either direction works once you get beyond that range, the smaller size snaps back into the display.
