Information for Students.
Canvas uses SpeedGrader to deliver feedback, comments, grades to you quickly, efficiently and effectively; and is the Universities recommended approach to marking and feedback.
Prior to Canvas and SpeedGrader, some staff were using a marking tool that came with Turnitin originality checking software called GradeMark. This short video takes you through the process of accessing Turnitin via Canvas and into Grademark to receive your feedback from staff still using this tool.
For more details on how to access your assignments you can read this Canvas Guide (Links to an external site.) for students.
If you have additional queries regarding understanding your feedback when completed in GradeMark, you can read the Turnitin guidance documents here (Links to an external site.).
Viewing your assignment feedback
How do I view assignment feedback comments from my instructor using Canvas DocViewer annotations?
Viewing feedback online
On the assignment submission details page, some of your graded assignments may appear as file upload attachments that include a View Feedback button. Instead of leaving comments directly on the assignment, your instructor may choose to include comments directly in the assignment using annotations, or inline comments. These comments are made using Canvas DocViewer, (Links to an external site.) which you can also use to reply to any comments or make your own annotations.
Some browsers may not initially render comments correctly when viewing feedback. If your browser includes a built-in PDF viewer, select the option to view the PDF in the system viewer. You can also download PDF files with comments to view on your computer. The settings required to view or print the annotations in the PDF vary based on the software installed on your computer.
- If the assignment attachment displays a Preview button instead of the View Feedback button, your file is not DocViewer compatible and will not include any annotated comments.
- If the browser window is too small, the View Feedback button may not be visible. Make sure your browser window is fully maximized when viewing feedback. Alternatively, you may need to scroll within the Submission Details box to see the View Feedback button.
In Course Navigation, click the Grades link.
