Is there a journaling feature in Canvas? A high school biology teacher wants his students to answer a "bell ringer" question every day to start class. At the end of the marking period he wants to see the responses sorted by student so he can grade them as he would if they were doing it in a notebook with pencil and paper. It would also be nice for the students to have a copy of the questions and responses to study for exams. Is there currently a way for students to do this in canvas?

Stacy,

There is not a journaling feature, but what you can do is create an Assignment that has no Due date and no Until date. Assignments can be submitted as many times as needed or desired. Another option would be to create groups with only one student in each group. Then the instructor could create a Graded Discussion for each day that he would like to have the students enter a journal entry. Both ways can utilize the SpeedGrader for grading.
