How do you allow a student to upload a "draft" of a paper, for teacher comments, before a final version of the paper is due?
Hi F Lynn McMurrey
I find the easiest way to do this is to use a single assignment, create a rubric that includes first-draft and final draft criteria. Students submit their first-draft, you score it using that part of the rubric, then they upload their final draft and you score it using the second half of the criteria.
Student can resubmit multiple time, and grading rubrics can be used multiple. All files are available to the instructor. The one draw-back from the student perspective is that once they upload their final draft, they can no longer view their first draft. This is typically okay, because by the time the final is submitted, they no longer need the first draft.
I hope this helps,
F Lynn McMurrey, contra Kelley, I prefer to use one Canvas assignment per draft. This allows students to see all drafts and feedback while also being clear about the due dates for the various drafts. Of course, I also place all of my assignments in modules so that the students have a clear sequence. I start the module with the instructions for the essay assignment. Then I place scaffolding assignments, drafts, etc. in the module. The module ends with the final draft assignment.
There are several ways to get the job done here. Kelley's way works. I like to think my method also has some benefits.
We generally use the method Dallas E Hulsey recommends. Our students find it less confusing.
