- The “Available until” date specifies the deadline for submitting the assignment. After this date, an assignment cannot be submitted
- The “Due” date shows students when the deadline is, but it is also possible to submit after the deadline if the “Available until” date is later than the deadline. Assignments submitted after the deadline will be annotated as submitted too late.
- If you do not specify a Due date, the students will see that the assignment is annotated “No due date”. Since this may be confusing, we recommend that you set the same date for “Due” and “Available until”.
- “Assignments” function primarily as submission folders, and are used for group assignments, peer reviews and plagiarism review.
- “Quizzes” function only individually, but allow for many types of questions with automatic correction and feedback.
- Quizzes created in a course will be accessible both from “Quizzes” and from “Assignments” in the Course Menu
If some students are to have a different deadline from the others, you should not change the original assignment.
You should create a new assignment:
- Go to the assignment
- Click on “Edit” (in the dot menu)
- Click on “More options”, scroll down to “Assign” and click on “+ Add”
- Enter names of students who shall have a new deadline and set the applicable dates
- Yes, this is done by switching on plagiarism review after students have submitted their assignments: Click on “Edit” and tick “Plagiarism Review”
- However, you must use SpeedGrader for each individual student and select “Re-submit to Ouriginal” (grey button).
- The assignment will now be submitted to Ouriginal (formerly known as URKUND) for plagiarism review. An hourglass icon appears, because you have to wait for the report. This may take some time, so you can check again later.
They indicate the percentage match in the plagiarism review.
Blue denotes minimum, followed by green, orange, etc.
- Go to Grades in the Course Menu
- Find the assignment in question and click on the three dots that appear to the right of the assignment title when the pointer is on the title
- Click on “Grade Posting Policy”
- Select “Manually”
- The grades will now be hidden automatically when they are entered.
- NB!! Du må sette minst én vurdering (sette karakter) for at alt, inkludert kommentarene, skal bli skjult.NB: You must specify at least one assessment (set a grade) if everything, including comments, is to be hidden. If you begin to write comments without first specifying an assessment, the comments will be visible.
To publish the grades:
- When all the examiners have completed their work (and remembered to click on “Send” for all comments), with the assignment selected in SpeedGrader, click on the “eye” icon at the top left and select “Publish assessments”.
- Go to SpeedGrader and check whether there is a small, grey button at the top of the comment labelled “Submit”.
- If so, click on it to make the comment visible to the student.
- In the settings (click on “Edit”) under “Display grades as”, check whether the assignment is “Not graded”
- Assignments that have not been graded display no options for submission type.
- You must select a method of showing grades, e.g. Approved/Not approved, if it is to be possible to submit assignments.
- Yes, but NB: You must end the period for self-enrolment, in other words edit the group set by removing the “self sign-up” option, before the students can submit the assignment (accessible through the assignment settings).
- If you don’t do this, students may change group and be incorrectly annotated as having submitted or not submitted because of the activity of their former group.
- Students must go to a specific assignment and select it
- On the right, under “Assigned peer review”, click on the name of the person you have been assigned
- Type your feedback in the comments field.

- To view feedback from classmates, click on the assignment and then on “Submission details” on the right
- If rubrics have been used, they must also click on “View rubric, assessment guide” to view the feedback
- Set a deadline for the submission of the assessment, preferably the same date as “Due” and “Available until”
- If you set up automatic assignment of peer reviews, you must set a new date for when the assessments will become accessible for peer review
This date must be after the submission deadline.
- Students can assess each other even after the “Available until” date
- Unfortunately it is not possible to set a deadline in Canvas for when peer reviews shall be completed.
- Create a group set and assign the students to the groups.
- If necessary, self sign-up may be permitted, but then you must remember to terminate this before the assignment is submitted, i.e. from the “Available from” date.

- Then students must find the right quiz, and click a feedback-icon to see the feedback from instructor
Instructor also has the possibility to give feedback to the specific quiz-questions, in SpeedGrader. This feedback will, however, be visible to students when they find the correct quiz through the Quizzes-chioce in Course navigation.
