I like the new Drive Assignment app, but it would go from good to great with a few additions:
1. The ability to easily "open in new tab" or "open full-screen". Too many simple Drive tasks like adjusting margins, inserting pictures/graphs can't be done inside the iframe. There needs to be an Open in drive option to pop out the paper in a new tab.
2. There also needs to be a button (like in Classroom) to Return or "hand back" all student papers, which would give editing access back to all students. This is essential for them to be able to see teacher comments (not visible in View only) and make revisions, which is the point, right? I am currently "unsubmitting", which has to be done one-by-one and fosters poor communication since the student did submit the assignment; I just want them to be able to see my comments and make changes if necessary.
3. Need to be able to copy Drive Assignments. Right now, when I copy the assignment from one class to another, it reverts back to the "old" assignment tool and I have to re-click the Google Drive Assignment app button to again attach my template. This is a cumbersome and easy to forgot to do when copying to multiple sections.
