Lowering Demands on our Time: Assignment and Gradebook Considerations

Lowering Demands on our Time: Assignment and Gradebook Considerations Online

The university professor is balancing more than ever before; multiple modalities, research and scholarship, teaching, service and family. Instructors can utilize Canvas Assignments to free up time grading and managing assignments by having students upload papers, type responses into a textbox, upload media recording, submit a website URL, and access grading rubrics. Canvas Assignments is ideal for graded tasks and simplifies submitting grades to the Canvas Gradebook. This allows students to track course progress and receive timely feedback through instructors’ use of the Canvas SpeedGrader. In this session, participants will explore common assignment scenarios such as: implementing a point-based system vs. weighted grading, use of assignment groups, benefits of using Canvas rubrics, file format for student submissions, and use of SpeedGrader.
