Student upload written assignment

Jump to solution

Is there a modification that I can allow for just one of my students who handwrites her work to take a picture of it and then upload it to an assessment instead of completing the Canvas assessment?

Hi @ANGELAGLADE ...

Are all of your students submitting a file to you for this particular assignment?  If so, for this one student, what about having her submit the work via the Canvas Student app?  She could then take a photo of her hand-written work on her phone, and then she could submit that to you.

Do you think that might be a possibility?  Keep us posted...thanks!

You have a couple options. You could add a question type that allows File Upload or you could adjust who takes the assessment.

It appears the simplest method would be to add a File Upload question to the assessment if it is a Canvas Quiz. The question could be set to ZERO points and have instructions to take a photo of the handwritten work. Then, each question answered correctly in the handwritten notes could be awarded points throughout the quiz, or the File Upload question could be awarded a total of all the correct points.

Alternatively, Canvas allows you to choose who 'completes' each assessment, so you could take her off the original assessment and then add an assessment where she is the only one assigned, and she'd upload the photo of her handwritten work.
