If you are collecting student responses or documents you should use Canvas to collect these artifacts. This ensures all student work is properly indexed as part of the student's educational record and streamlines the feedback/grading process. Review the Choose between Assignments and Quizzes section if you're unsure which Canvas tool to select.
- Even if your course has in-person meetings, some students will not be able to safely attend in-person class sessions, and you should not be collecting or returning physical documents/objects to students.
- Once student work is in Canvas, scoring and feedback can be provided efficiently and effectively via Canvas SpeedGrader (Canvas article).
