How do I View Faculty or Peer Feedback on an Assignment?

Faculty can leave feedback on any assignment you submit in Canvas, and your peers can leave feedback if it is a peer review assignment. There are two kinds of feedback that can be provided on an assignment submitted in Canvas: summary comments and in-line annotations. You can view both kinds of feedback in several different places in Canvas.

Feedback via the Home Page

  1. Go to Canvas and click on the desired course.
  2. On the right-hand side of the page, under Recent Feedback there will be links to any assignments that have comments on them and the first few words of any summary comments.
  3. Click the title of the assignment in question to be taken to the assignment page.
  4. Summary comments will show in the right sidebar. To view in-line annotations, on the right, click the View feedback button.

Note: if you have already viewed the feedback once, this link will disappear from your Recent Feedback section. The Recent Feedback section also shows a limited number of assignments, so if you have a lot of feedback that you haven't viewed yet, the assignment you are looking for may not display in this section.

Feedback via the Assignment Page

  1. Go to Canvas and click on the desired course.
  2. On the left, click Assignments.
  3. Click on the title of the assignment in question.
  4. On the right, click Submission Details.
  5. Summary comments will show in the right sidebar. To view in-line annotations, on the right, click the View feedback button.

Feedback via the Gradebook

  1. Go to Canvas and click on the desired course.
  2. On the left, click Grades.
  3. Click the title of the assignment in question to be taken directly to the submission details page.
  4. Summary comments will show in the right sidebar. To view in-line annotations, on the right, click the View feedback button.

More detailed instructions are available through a Canvas How-To Guide.
