Known issues indicate notable behaviors that has been escalated to the Canvas engineering team. Known issues are not a guarantee for an immediate resolution. This document is for informational purposes only and does not replace the Support process. If you are encountering the behavior outlined in this document, please ensure you have submitted a Support case (per your institution's escalation process) so Canvas Support can adequately gauge the overall customer impact and prioritize appropriately.

When multiple students are assigned to peer review the same student’s submission, all of the assigned students can see each other’s annotations on the peer reviewed document.

Expected Behavior


Instead, peer reviewing students should not be able to see each other’s annotations.


No workaround exists at this time.
