Canvas assignments can be used for both formative and summative assesments. The Assignment tool allows students to submit a file or URL within your course for the submission of a website or other online activity such as a personal portfolio. All assignments are collected in the grades area where you can add feedback via Speedgrader.
Grades Area and Speedgrader
The grades area allows you to organise your students submitted assessments and view all students on your course. Filters can also be used to identify individuals or groups of students. Speedgrader however is where work is reviewed and feedback can be provided. If anonymity has been switched on for your assignment, you will not be able to identify each student in Speedgrader.
The grades area allows you to view all student submissions. The assignments are arranged in columns and you can quickly identify who has submitted work.
