So I am trying to download the assignments from just one student. How do I do this without downloading the assignments for the entire class or without having do do this one assignment at a time?
Hello there, Cale Thornburg Welcome to the Canvas Community. Thanks for posting your question. Unfortunately, I do not know of a way on the front end of Canvas to download all submissions of various assignments in your course from a specific student. I'm also not sure if there is any way to do this via other more advanced methods (API, for example). The best I can provide you is a link to this Guide: How do I download all student submissions for an assignment? I am going to share your question with the Canvas Developers group here in the Canvas Community in hopes that your question will get some additional exposure. If you are not following this group, please use the link that I have provided, and then click on the "Follow" button which is located in the upper right corner of the page. You'll also see an "Actions" button next to "Follow". Click on "Actions", and then choose "Join group". I hope this will be of help to you, Cale. Good luck!
Hello Chris - Is there any reason why it is not possible to download all the submissions from a single student. I am surprised that is not an option. Not being able to do so has made grading my course significantly more difficult as the nature of my course requires a student to upload several documents as different assignments and I would like the option to review them all at once.
Can you be more specific?
Are you trying to download the submission content? Or scores? Or comments?
Chris Hofer is right - you cannot bulk-download submissions for an individual student through the web. Through the API, though, you can request submissions for a student (or students) all at once. This gives data like scores, comments, rubric assessments, etc. You can then build a report (CSV, txt file...) with the information you're looking for.
Students do have the ability to download all of their submissions from all of their classes. I know this is not what you are looking for, but given your specific use case you could ask students to follow this process to download all of their submissions, and then to zip up just the submissions to your class to upload to an overall assignment. Yes it's a bit redundant but probably the easiest way I can think of to make it work.
