Printing Comments on Submitted Assignments

Follow

Our students are submitting google docs and teachers are commenting on them in Schoology.  The students know how to print comments made within a google doc, but not when the comments are made in Schoology.  Could you provide some assistance.

    Hi Travis, 

    Comments made on Google Docs from within Schoology function the same way as comments made directly on Google Docs. Students are able to directly access the Google Docs from their Google account. 

    As there is nowhere to leave a comment that exists solely within Schoology in a Google Drive Assignment, teachers are likely commenting on the Docs from within the docviewer in Schoology. This is the same as commenting directly on the Google Doc.

    Please let us know if you have any further questions!

    Hi all,

    As far as I can see, there is not a way to download and print the comments if you don't give Schoology access to all of your files, which is what you do when you merge drive and Schoology. I do NOT merge my google with Schoology (I don't want them to have access to my files). Is there a way, simply within the Schoology interface, to download the submission WITH all of comments in the margins? If not, can Schoology please fix this and make it a feature? It is a feature in Turnitin, so it makes it seem silly to use Schoology for submissions that require comments, since students can't have access to them in print form. It would be great to not be forced into giving Schoology all of my lesson plans for free. 

    Thanks.

    Hi Kelly, 

    To clarify, are you looking for the ability for students to download Google assignments with comments? 

    If so, could they do so directly from the Google Doc rather than from within Schoology? This would accommodate your privacy needs. Although it would require the extra step of accessing the document through Google. 

    I'd also like to reassure you that connecting your Google Drive by installing the Google Drive Assignments App does not enable Schoology to access all of your lesson plans. You can read more about the Google Drive Assignments App in this Help Center article. Please let us know if there's anything we can clarify further for you. 

    If you're looking for the ability to print comments on regular Schoology assignments (not Google-related), please provide an upvote for this pre-existing feature request. Presently, the only way to do so would be to take a screenshot of the assignment with comments and print that image. 

    If neither of these are what you're looking for, please consider submitting your own feature request through our Feature Ideas forum.

    Best,
