DocViewer not working in canvas free for teacher (Role: Instructor)

Jump to solution

I am an instructor using the canvas free-for-teacher account. I set up a Quiz on it where the students need to upload a pdf file as their answer.

On clicking speedgrader to grade the quiz, I cannot see previews of any of the student submissions. I can only see a link to download the file (see screenshot below).

I read that Docviewer should open up directly to display the file so that I can annotate it as needed. Can someone please tell me how to enable it/what is the issue due to which it is not showing up?

Thanks in advance!

Hi @RakeshV,

DocViewer works for annotating assignments, but does not work with Quizzes (classic or new) at all.  For quizzes, you'd unfortunately have to download the student submissions, mark them up with Word (or other) software, save the marked up files and upload them back to each student individually.
