Docviewer - default palette of icons/ images

My skill with drawing using a mouse in Docviewer  is rather lackluster.  So my thought is a palette of predefined images would be ever so helpful.  A question mark, green check mark, new paragraph, etc. would be rather useful.  Any interest?

I was search under wrong keywords! Yes please..

We have certain subjects, like Accounting, that has grid formatted answers, like a balance sheet, or some accounting journals. Marking typically is done by ticks and/or crosses. Comments in these cases aren't as useful, nor a rubric is as helpful.

 

I can think of other subjects where this would be very useful as well, like economics, mathematics, statistics and more!

As you can see, that's not easy to do on Speedgrader and drawing on a mouse is not ideal nor good for the wrist!

I only have a blank script here, imagine I could just click on the stamp or symbol I wanted, then click anywhere on the script to indicate some feedback (via the ticks and crosses) for each part.

This feature is so critical for my marking (worked well in Crowd Mark) that I don't see the point in using this Canvas feature without it.  My course has over 1,000 students a year, and the type of tests/exams we create do not lend themselves to drawing with a mouse.  What we need are check marks and exes.

Grading assignments is generally not a teacher's favorite part of their job. However, one of the benefits of giving a paper assignment is you can put fun stickers on it! I propose the ability to put virtual stickers or gifs on student work or in the comments in SpeedGrader. This will be more exciting and enticing for the students to check their assignments online and the positivity of giving stickers is good for the morale of both students and teachers.

I would like this feature for grading engineering/math assignments. Green check mark (for correct), yellow check mark (for correct step, but earlier mistake), red X (for incorrect step). And you should also still be able to attach a comment to the symbols.

I would support this idea for sure (IIRC I could do this in Blackboard back in the day). However, can't you also approximate this by using emoji in regular comments?

When giving feedback to younger students it would be helpful and encouraging to be able to insert a fun digital feedback sticker (clipart) right onto their submitted assignment from sources such as google docs, and slides.

Right now we can attach an image to the comments when grading work. However, students then have to click on the link to view the image. Allowing us to be able to put the image right into the work would help reduce the steps for younger kids to see the feedback/encouragement.

Please allow adding jpg in Speedgrader.

For Kindergarten teachers and we will put "motivation stickers" on their work. Like this example:motivation sticker 1.jpg

Hi @Haidsong

I've opened this idea for conversation. 

Thanks,

It would be so helpful to have X's and checks, and "almost right", etc.

 

But every discipline/person uses different marks/icons. Can it be an option to create your own?

Yes! I teach at the high school level, but I'd also love to be able to put feedback stickers on student document submissions in Speedgrader!

I am relatively new to Canvas and have been using Speed Grader a lot. One of the first things I wanted to know was whether or not there was a stamp for a check mark. I cannot believe this idea was presented over three years ago and there is still not one available. Canvas - can you please give an update on this feature?

Yes, please add some basic stickers/stamps at least for grading annotations. I use the mouse for making checkmarks in which a simple stamp would be great for and save time. I like the idea of custom stickers for the user (instructor) to add but at least some basic ones should be included.

I think a number of instructors from all levels would like this opportunity! I know that it would be used in a variety of ways -- bitmoji stickers, generic praise stickers, but also examples or "answers" to diagrams.

I agree - this would be great! I am a high school English teacher and would definitely use this.

I agree.  Although I teach middle school they still like the whimsy of a sticker every now and then to show they have done well whether on assignment or embedded into a quiz when they choose the correct answer.  Cana base set of stickers be setup with the option to maybe add/upload images to function also like stickers?

I think this is a great idea! I would love to be able to add stickers directly on to student files after they've submitted them.
