Setting up your Exam
Adding the question
You can add the question to the text field but if you are linking a file or embedding an image, it is vital to learn about access controls for files that will be attached or embedded in your exam to ensure students don’t get access to these parts of the exam too soon or too late.
Online Entry Options
Select File Uploads and have students upload their work. If students are working on a long typed response, we recommend students upload files, so they will have an offline copy. However students must be patient; warn them that it might take 5 minutes to upload or give them extra time to upload. Please make students aware they should notify the instructor or TA immediately if they encounter difficulties uploading.
To view the assignment from the student perspective, navigate to 'Student View'.
- Navigate to Home
- Select Student View
- A pink border will appear around the screen indicating one is in Student View. You can use this to verify your assignment is not yet available.
- Do not forget to ‘Leave Student View’ via the bar at the bottom of the page.
Reviewing and Grading
Download or Read Student Work Online
With Assignments, you have the option to download all files for offline viewing or printing. You can also read it online in SpeedGrader (see below).
Providing Feedback & Grading Online
Use SpeedGrader to provide feedback on exams and student submissions. Any grades entered in SpeedGrader are automatically added to the Canvas Gradebook. Assignments set up as Manual Post Policy prevents students from viewing grades until you Post Grades. Assignments set up as Automatic Post Policy allows students to view grades immediately. Note: Multiple graders can view but should not enter grades in Speedgrader at the same time.
You can manually enter and edit grades in the Gradebook.
