The new Speedgrader Assignment Comment Library feature is great but it would be even more helpful if multiple graders could make use of a comments library or if comments libraries could be shared.
One of the most useful things about a Speedgrader comment library is to standardize grading across courses with multiple instructors or TAs. By making comments shareable, instructors can ensure that their TAs have access to effective written feedback and that their students will receive consistent assignment feedback, no matter who the grader is. This is especially useful in situations where TAs are very new or inexperienced.
Assignment libraries are also good ways to guide TAs in effective grading practices. Ideally, once TAs have seen effective feedback from instructors, they can begin to add to the shared course comments library themselves.
