Is there a fast way to view and print the answers that students have submitted for their exam / assignment?
Roz, the easiest way to view answers that students have submitted for their exams/assignments is via Speedgrader - How do I get to SpeedGrader from an assignment, quiz, or graded discussion?.
Printing is a little trickier in that there isn't a built in way to print quizzes, discussions, or certain types of Assignments.
Hope this helps!
Thanks for the info. Very helpful.
One more related question (which would probably delete the necessity to print at all)...
At the moment, Canvas provides a handy textbox for the instructor to type comments on each question in a quiz, as well as another texbox for overall comments/feedback. But I can't seem to see if there is a method for students to respond back to those comments? The objective of this would be for the student to go through reflective thinking, and provide justification/explanation for their thought process. This way, the instructor can guide the student to perform better in future quizzes (note: the subject matter for this particular course is learning how to diagnose based on a given scenario).
In short, does Canvas allow back and forth dialog between instructor and student (specifically in the quiz interface)?
Roz, yes, but not on individual questions. What I've done for things like this is add my feedback/comments in the "Add a Comment" section of speedgrader for each student. Students can not only see these comments, but reply back to them. So yes, it would facilitate a back-and-forth dialog between the Instructor and student(s).
I was hoping it could be done for each individual question, especially if the content of each question is a different case study. Having only one thread of dialog would work if the feedback dialog relates to the overall, but if a dialog is needed for each exam question, it would be a little more cumbersome to have to refer back to specific questions.
Nevertheless, this is still better than printing on paper! LOL!
I can definitely see where it would be much more effective by question, but I'm glad the current functionality will prevent you from needing to print everything off!
