How do I delete a comment I made on a student's quiz grade?
Mary, greetings and welcome to the Community! If you look at the comment in Speedgrader you can click the X in the upper right corner of the comment to delete it. If you are looking at the comment in the Gradebook then click on "More Details in the Speedgrader" and then look on the lower right side of the page for the comment and ability to delete it.
Hope this helps!
Mary France Welcome to the Canvas Community! Kona Jones has given you great guidance (thanks, Kona!). I'd only add that although you can delete a comment on a grade, you can't "unsend" it. Students who have their notification preferences set to receive grade comments Right Away will already have received the comment in their notification medium of choice.
Hi. My question relates to this. What happens when an assignment is muted? Since no notifications are sent-- can you delete a comment and replace it with another without the first being visible? Or, will the student automatically see both when the assignment is unmuted? Thanks!
Hope, good question! This is something I do all the time - in fact just today! Yes, you can delete a comment and replace it with another comment while the assignment is muted and students will NOT get the comment that was deleted once the assignment is unmuted. :-)
Hope, Kona has given you great information. What you describe is exactly what I did during my grading process. I kept the assignment muted until I had reviewed all of the grades and comments, made all of the behind-the-scenes changes and edits I deemed necessary, and only then did I "un-mute" the assignment. At that point, students receive notifications and will not see any of the comments you've deleted during the review process.
