Hi team. I'm hopeful that you have a way to add a word-counting feature to discussion boards. Can you please advise where to find this so that grading essay discussions can be done more efficiently? - Thanks in advance!
Hello, Jeff Fryer and welcome to the Canvas Community! You'll find that idea open for voting at Word count for Speedgrader (DocViewer) grading , so please continue the conversation there.
In addition, after reviewing the Be You section of What are the Canvas Community guidelines?, please edit your profile so your first and last name display rather than initials. Thanks.
Thank you for responding Stefanie, but I still do not see the feature implemented?
We also have this/a similar request. We see that users have a word count when composing a discussion board - but that number is important for the faculty member as well. If, for example, I assign a discussion post of 300 words or more - it is great that the students see the count to make sure they meet that requirement. I must also see that number, however, as the instructor in order to grade properly. It would be great to see this number in SpeedGrader but I'd also like to see it on the discussions themselves.
Thank you for commenting, Christopher. I will continue to request this, as it is imperative in order to better support both faculty and students.
