Where do I find the number of words that are submitted in canvas essay assignment
Hi David DeSilvio Welcome to the worldwide Canvas Community. You ask a question that several have asked in the past. Interestingly, while Canvas allows the creator of content to see the word count within Canvas' rich content editor, the same does not apply to instructors....which I assume you are. First, you may want to lend your vote (and your comment) to this Feature Idea that is still available for voting: Word count for Speedgrader (DocViewer) grading
Otherwise, I'm afraid the only way to verify the word count as an instructor is to copy whatever was submitted and paste it into your favorite word processor program that has this feature. (For what it's worth, in most PC-based versions of Word it is under the REVIEW tab, and then by clicking the Word Count button that is on the ribbon.) I might add that if this is especially important for you, you may want to have students upload a file rather than type into the rich content editor, though I realize this may be more trouble than its worth depending on the assignment.
Hope this helps a bit, David.
