In the speedgrader I can filter the students by section, good!
But is there a way to download the submissions of just one section, instead of all (100's of) students?
Alex, I’ll save you more time and let you know that you can’t download by section in Canvas.
There is a feature idea for this - Download a subset of assignment submissions - and I’d recommend voting and commenting on why it would be so helpful.
I found this documentation that I think might be what you're looking to do.
How do I download all student submissions for an assignment in SpeedGrader?
It is not what I'm looking for. The documentation does not mention anything about downloading submissions of just one section. It only explains how to download submissions of all students. What I need is a way to download the submissions of the 50 students in a section, instead of getting the submissions of all 500 students.
Maybe this will help. Using the new gradebook you can select a specific section of the course and then click on the assignment you are wanting to download the assignment for just the students in that section. Note this only works if you're using the new gradebook in your course.
How do I download all student submissions for an assignment in the New Gradebook?
Hope this helps.
Allas, I just tried it but it doesn't work. I have the students filtered in the gradebook, but if I download the submissions of an assignment as illustrated in the link you provided, I get a zip file containing the submissions of all students.
Thanks, I'll vote!
