SpeedGrader Comment Library

Authors list

The Comment Library allows instructors to save and reuse commonly used text feedback in SpeedGrader. As an instructor, you can add new comments and delete existing comments in the Comment Library. Comments you have added to the Comment Library are accessible from each course in which you are enrolled as an instructor.

  • The Comment Library functionality is not supported in the assignment submission details page.
  • If you enter an assignment score, the score will automatically submit to the Gradebook when navigating to a new submission in SpeedGrader. However, assignment comments must be submitted manually before they can be viewed by students.
  • To ensure that students can't access submitted assignment grades and comments until you are finished grading, select a manual posting policy for the assignment.
