Ability to Save and Copy from Frequently Used Comments in Speedgrader/DocViewer

Ability to Save and Copy from Frequently Used Comments in Speedgrader/DocViewer

(50)
It would be a great timesaver for writing instructors and anyone else making many of the same comments to students on assignments to save and store comments in SpeedGrader/Crocodoc DocViewer as one is able to do in Turnitin's Grademark feature. This feature would help SpeedGrader really live up to its name, too.

 

This has been a request since August 2012: Ability to Save and Copy from Frequently Used Comments in Crocodoc : Help Center

As someone who struggles with the amount of grading I have to do, this feature would make my life so much better. Please, please add it!

There are a number of comments that one finds oneself typing over and over again.  It would be helpful if we could have some kind of comment bank that teacher could create of comments they frequently use that is accessible in all annotation settings whether using text, block, pointer, etc.   This way you drag from  the comment bank to the section that needs the comment and the docviewer will then enter it with the type of annotation that has been in use.

Yes, please.

Allow teachers to pre-write some comments/feedback templates for students. That way if students submit work that requires similar feedback (they both missed the same questions or did great on the same areas), then the teacher can just click a drop-down to the pre-written feedback template (and then adjust it as necessary for each student). That way they don't have to retype similar feedback every time. The teachers will be saving time and be able to give more descriptive feedback to each student (because it'll be faster to give detailed feedback that is personal to each student's work).

Please do this.  Right now Canvas gradebook and Speedgrader are not nearly as functional as they could be, and I may just stop using them.

I realize that at this point, many of these comments seem rather pointless, but if possible, could we also streamline the process for suggesting features? Thinking more of a reddit style upvoting to result in a faster process?

The need for a comment bank still exists in 2021, just like it did back in 2015 when this thread started. I"ll have to go back to using Google Classroom because it does have a comment bank feature!!
