I am the lead teacher for Intermediate English, and I must confess that I am completely thrown off by the loss of Crocodoc. I had developed a marking style that was perfect for my feedback purposes, and I have had to revert to old-school track changes method in Word because I simply do not see an effective way to provide feedback in the new document viewer. In short, SpeedGrader is less than speedy for me.
I have a plethora of concerns, but my primary concern is that annotations do not show up when I select "Download annotated PDF." I have even called technical support about this problem, and the person to whom I spoke was perplexed by the inability to see annotations, too. I require students to use my printed feedback for revisions. That is why I had to return to giving feedback within the Word document.
1. I apologize if this concern has been addressed elsewhere. I am new to this community site, and I could not easily find any information on my specific issues. 2. I welcome feedback on anything that I have said. If anyone is truly comfortable with the new system, I welcome tips. Right now, I am not seeing the benefit of a switch
, and I do not have time to figure it all out with mounds of grading in my inbox.
