New Quizzes: Allow File Upload Question Submissions to be Previewed in Speedgrader

New Quizzes: Allow File Upload Question Submissions to be Previewed in Speedgrader

In most contexts, when a file such as a Word document or PDF is linked in Canvas, a preview button is added alongside the filename, which allows the user to preview the file in-line without downloading the file:

However, this is not the case for file-upload question submissions, which must be downloaded by the grader in order to be viewed in both quizzes:

and New Quizzes.

In order to streamline the process of grading file upload question submissions, Canvas should add the ability to preview file upload attachments in-line in the speedgrader for New/Classic Quizzes.

There is another similar idea to this wandering around (that the file upload can be run through Turnitin/text matching.).

Indeed, New Quizzes: Allow use of turnitin is worth a look! Thanks, @sharon_kitching !

Yes please make this a feature. It is necessary for courses that require a file upload for exams.

Please! We're trying to promote the idea of switching to New Quizzes based on these great new question types, and an early adapter was excited about the file upload until he realized it's taking longer to get to these to grade than anticipated...
