Word Count???

Jump to solution

How do you do a word count on a document submitted from a student on Canvas?  It was very easy to do on Google Docs, but I can't figure it out on Canvas.

Another possible option. The University of Colorado has a number of Canvas Enhancements using TamperMonkey scripts. Scroll to SpeedGrader Word Count and follow the instructions to install TamperMonkey and the script. 

Also, Data Word Counter is developed by educators for educators. The site has other text tools such as SameDiff and ConnectTheDots.  See the Ensuring Your Privacy statement. There does not appear to have an extension so copying and pasting would be required.
