Are students notified when grading comments are updated?

Hi Canvas Community,


I was wondering if an assignment is already graded, but the faculty returns later to update or add a comment, will the student be notified that there is a new comment for them to view? I understand if the student has their notification enabled then they would receive an initial notification, but wasn't sure if another notification goes out if the grading comments are updated. 


The faculty that presented the question has graded a students midterm with comments. However, they returned to update the comments after the initial grading to provide more feedback. The teacher wants to know if they need to always reach out via email as well to ensure the students read the feedback or if the students are immediately notified once the comments are updated.
