Is there anyone else having trouble with the canvas speedgrader not downloading student work on an IPad?
Hi Dan Stein,
Just to clarify are you talking about the Canvas Teacher app. There used to be a SpeedGrader app and I'm sure some devices might have it installed, so just want to make sure. Thanks!
I am using the Canvas Teachers app. I am one of several instructors piloting Canvas this semester as the University is moving to Canvas this summer.

HI Dan Stein,
What kind of file are you having trouble downloading? The Canvas Teacher app doesn't support downloading apps that render inside the SpeedGrader area (Word Docs, PDFs, most images, text). If the file is not supported to open in SpeedGrader, you will get the option to "Open In..." and can view it in another app. Hope this helps.
Ryan Seilhamer, a question here: am I reading you correctly? The Canvas teacher app (the primary app I’m supposed to use re. mobile Canvas) will not do something as fundamental as allow me to download PDFs/Word Docs?
(The “Open In” option, to clarify, is not available on my currently up-to-date version of the app.)
This would mean literally no way to get student work onto my ipad. Can that really be the case?
Yes, that is correct. I think the assumption is you can use the annotation tools inside the Canvas Teacher app to mark up documents and images. If you could export the file, what would you want to do with it?
Oh, you know: mark it up using a fully-featured PDF markup app, upload it to Dropbox—that sort of crazy, frivolous behavior!

Heh, frivolous indeed! Serious though, I totally understand. The built-in annotation tools might not be enough for everyone and having the freedom to work outside the app seems like a natural extension of a mobile app. I would definitely suggest creating a feature idea to bring attention to this need for the app. Thanks for your feedback on this aspect of the app.
Hi again, Just checking in one more time to see if you were able to solve this issue. If not, please feel free to respond back with a little more information (referenced above) and I'll happy to help.
I am still having trouble with the App - I am a trying to grade PDF files using the Teachers App. I can log into Canvas and pull up the assignments, but nothing will down load.
Sorry for the delay in a reply. Were you able to figure this out with the latest update in Canvas Teacher 1.8 released on May 2nd? If not, can you share some screenshots or even a quick video of what you are seeing as you try to access the assignment?
There have been 3 Canvas Teacher updates since your last post. Did you get a chance to download them? If so, did they fix your issue? Thanks.
