I had students submit an assignment using a the text box. I want to grade and annotate the assignment but when I open the speedgrader I do not have the ability to. Any help on how to do this?
Hi Tim Murray Welcome to the Canvas Community. I'm afraid I have some bad news for you; you cannot annotate a textbox entry in SpeedGrader. This is noted in the blue-colored area at the top of this lesson: How do I add annotated comments in student submissions using DocViewer in SpeedGrader? I bolded the part that is relevant for your question.
Notes:Files over 100 MB and password-protected files will not be converted by DocViewer.Annotation tools are not available for text entry assignments.SpeedGrader may take up to ten minutes after an assignment is submitted to display a file that supports DocViewer.
About the best I can recommend is that you vote "up" this Feature Idea: In SpeedGrader Allow the Use of Annotations for Text Entry Submissions .
Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, Tim!
