Grading Canvas Assignments with Apple iPad

What's Needed

General Process

Assignment and Submissions:

  1. Faculty should craft their assignment as needed, requesting a file upload
    These uploads should be restricted to PDF
  2. Faculty should download all submissions: In the Canvas course, navigate to GradesThree Dot Assignment Menu > Download Submissions
  3. Follow instructions to save the generated zip file
  4. Unzip files into a folder
  5. Import files and folder into Box
    It is recommended that faculty use a Box folder structure that emulates Course Number > Assignment > PDFs.  The containing folder name is inconsequential, however to insure that Canvas can re-upload graded assignments, PDF must keep the same names.  

Grading on iPad for the first time:

  1. Open the Box App
  2. Log in with HWS credentials
  3. Verify that files that need to be graded can be accessed
  4. Open the Files App
  5. Using the internal navigation, open the Box Folder containing items that need to be graded
  6. Using the Pen icon at the top to open markup, grade as needed, toggling the markup button on and off as needed to scroll
  7. Upon completion, in the upper left, select Done
    This should save the marked up PDF to Box.

Subsequent Grading Experience:

  1. Open the Files App
  2. Using the internal navigation, open the Box Folder containing items that need to be graded
  3. Using the Pen icon at the top to open markup, grade as needed, toggling the markup button on and off as needed to scroll
  4. Upon completion, in the upper left, select Done
    This should save the marked up PDF to Box.

Uploading Graded Assignments to Canvas:

  1. From the folder containing the graded PDF assignments, create a zip file
    The name of this file should not matter, so long as the PDFs contained have remained the same name.
  2. In the Canvas course, navigate to GradesThree Dot Assignment Menu > Re-Upload Submissions
  3. Select the zipped folder with graded PDF files
  4. Click Upload and verify that files are successfully returned to students
