How do I enable SpeedGrader to launch filtered by student group?

Find your school's Canvas URL

To find your school or institution's Canvas URL, begin typing the name of your school/institution. Results will appear after you type at least 3 characters. For best results be as specific as possible. If you can't find your school, try using any part of your school's name or searching for your school district or state. You may also need to search for the school using the acronym or full name, for example "USU" and "Utah State University".

How do I enable SpeedGrader to launch filtered by student group?

In large courses with many student groups, instructors may wish to filter SpeedGrader by student groups. When the Launch SpeedGrader Filter by Student Group setting is enabled, you must select a student group when you open SpeedGrader to grade an assignment, quiz, or graded discussion or from the Gradebook. Only students from the selected group will display in SpeedGrader.

When this option is enabled, certain areas that open SpeedGrader will prompt you to select a student group to view in SpeedGrader. In areas that do not provide this option, SpeedGrader will open filtered to the first group that contains students. You can change the student group that opens by first selecting a student group in the New Gradebook. However, if you open SpeedGrader for a specific student, SpeedGrader will open filtered by the first available student group in which the student is a member. Additionally, if you open SpeedGrader from a specific student who is not a member of a student group, group filters will not be applied.
