I've set up a Group Assignment. It's a semester-long project. There are twelve groups, of 4-5 students per-group. It's a multi-faceted assignment, requiring all group members to submit/upload (at least) several files for my review/assessment/grading. We're at the end of this first semester that we've been using Canvas. Students - from the same Group for a Group Assignment - are submitting their deliverables - uploading their files.
For reasons beyond any of our understanding (students and me), Group members are not able to see each others' submissions. This would be a common sense feature of any LMS Group Assignment (easily accomplished in other LMS systems we've used). A logical design for a Group Assignment is for students to have immediate access to view the other Group members' submissions to the Group Assignment. This is essential for the efficient submission of the 15+ documents (total) each group submits - I even included a Checklist for them to use to monitor/confirm their timely and accurate uploads of all the project's deliverables.
I/we assume we're missing something (my students and I, that is). Please, tell me we're missing something that should be intuitive/obvious.
QUESTION: How can students easily access/view the submissions that other Group members submit/upload to a Group Assignment?
Thanks for any assistance,
