How do I score an assignment in a course in the Canvas Outcomes Assessment Platform?

How do I score an assignment in a course in the Canvas Outcomes Assessment Platform?

When students submit assignments, you will be able to view and score their submissions. While reviewing and scoring a student's submission, you will be able to leave internal notes for reviewers only, score the assignment according to the assignment's settings, and leave feedback for the student.

If the assignment was not quite complete and the student needs to make corrections, you can request revisions. Requesting revisions will notify the student, along with your feedback, of things to correct and then allow them to resubmit the assignment.
