Is there anyway to see a students Google Doc revision history in a Canvas assignment?

Jump to solution

I have several English teachers who are heavy Google Doc and Google Classroom users. One of the questions they have concerning moving their content to Canvas was how they could still see a student's revision history when using a Canvas assignment. Has anyone encountered how to make this happen? Thank you!

You asked your question some time ago, so I'd be really interested to hear your experience!  So please do come back and share what you learned!

There were a couple different ways I achieved this when I was teaching.  Sometimes I elected to use Collaborations.  I assigned a collaboration to a group, or an individual student, and I was able to view every transaction on the google doc, as well as have students submit them to the assignment.

In other times I had students create a google doc and submit it either directly from Google Drive or as a URLjperkins@instructure.com did a great short post on Grade a Google Doc using SpeedGrader.  He would have more expertise in accessing the history than I would, so hopefully he will add his experience!

Hello there, sembry@lebanon.k12.mo.us...

I have been reviewing older questions here in the Canvas Community, and I stumbled upon your question.  I'm sorry to see that your question has been sitting out here unanswered since the start of 2018.  #sadpanda‌  I'm not sure that I have an answer for you, but I wanted to check in to see if you've been able to come up with any solutions on your own since you first posted this question in January.  If so, would you be willing to share your solution back here in this thread?  Or, if you are still looking for some assistance from Community members, please let us know that as well.  Hopefully my reply will bring your topic closer to the top of discussion pages so that someone might be able to chime in and respond.  I hope this will help, Stephanie.
