Speedgrader as a function of the iPhone app

Speedgrader as a function of the iPhone app

This idea has been developed and deployed to Canvas
  Idea open for vote Wed. February 3, 2016 - Wed. May 4, 2016  Learn more about voting...

I'd like to see Speedgrader incorporated into the Canvas iPhone app (or, at the very least, the development of a Speedgrader app for iPhone).

 

I'm frequently in a situation where the only device I have access to is my iPhone and have assignments of the sort that could be easily graded with SpeedGrader.

 

Having that functionality would allow me to use that time productively and allow me to use the time I have at other devices like my lap or desktop for more complex tasks.

It's seems a bit crazy to me that this idea has to go through a voting process.  Speedgrader exists for android and iPad.  why is the iPhone inferior?

This idea will remain in the open voting forum as an idea related to Priority: Canvas Teacher App.

*Being a related idea does not guarantee it is slated for development, instead it indicates that the idea is related to the overall scope and is being used to inform the process.

Can someone explain to me why grading assignments or quizzes is not available on the iPhone App. This app is absolutely useless. All it does is simply notify me of any changes during the course such as assignments being turned in or quizzes being completed. Oh, it does create a "to do list" for you. This app only functions as a glorified email program.

I agree.  The iphone app is just silly.

I must admit, I am very surprised that more people are not requesting this.  iphone application #speedgrader ios

I had speedgrader on my previous android phone and loved it. Very surprised it wasn't available on my iPhone when I got it. It's usually the android devices that are deprived of all the good things.

Making SpeedGrader available on the iPhone/iPad app would be extremely beneficial for teachers to use outside of the classroom.  This would also enable teachers to have access to grading without being tied down to a laptop or desktop for grading. Thank you Santiago for posting this idea.  @Renee_Carney , you mentioned earlier that this did not meet a 100-vote requirement earlier. Is there another way we are able to push this development?

As  @Renee_Carney ‌ mentioned in her above reply, I would also suggest taking a look at Priority: Canvas Teacher App where you can see the progress on a new "Teacher" app that is being worked on.

Side note...the 100-vote requirement no longer applies.  Here's more information: https://community.canvaslms.com/docs/DOC-2109-how-does-the-voting-process-work-for-feature-ideas 

I hope this helps, Erica.

Thank you for submitting this as a suggestion.  I have been wanting to see this implemented as well. Speedgrader is already such a lifesaver when it comes to grading submissions.  I feel that making it more mobile and available on cellular devices (not just the iphone) would take it a step further.
