This would be extremely helpful. Currently, if a professor is not able to eyeball the word count then they have to actually download every assignment simply to check that, which eliminates a lot of the benefits of Speed Grader.
Yes, Please. A word count for all written submissions (discussions, text entry, and word documents would be very helpful. Right now there is a word count when creating content but it would be so helpful if a word count was available to instructors when GRADING work. Thank you.
I up voted this, but I agree with many here that the word count needs to be available across assignments (and assignment types), not just in Doc Viewer. As others have mentioned, this is a basic feature as well as a basic instructional need. Suggesting that workarounds are easy deflects from the fact that they require instructors to take extra steps that over even a short period of time add up.
I whole heartedly agree. This could not happen fast enough for me.
Especially when you multiply it nearly 800 students which is the case for some courses.
Please implement this feature. When requiring students to meet a specific word count, it would be nice to be able to check it without having to download each assignment. The idea of saving time with speed grader is minimal if I have to download and check every assignment for word count. While I don't always require it, on all essays I do, and need them to submit it to reference with turnitin. PLEASE add this feature.
Yes, a word count would be extremely helpful!
This is a no-brainer!
Word count is the only functionality that I miss in Canvas. Grading takes too long as I must cut--and-paste every assignment into MSWord before completing the rubric. Is word count in our future?
Need this! Would seriously save time. Even better would be to tie this directly to the grading rubric since my rubric includes a minimum word count requirement. Right now, I'm having to select and use "Word Count" extension for Chrome. It's an unnecessary extra step for review. Please add this!
