Canvas has tools that allow you to more quickly provide feedback to your students, including tools for automatically generating feedback. Consider also including feedback policy in your syllabus or else a statement about how quickly students can expect their assignments to be graded and given feedback.
Think about what feedback can your students expect?

Suggestions for improvement.
- Quizzes and Graded Surveys can automatically provide feedback to students upon submission.
- Using the SpeedGrader, especially with Rubrics, can help you more quickly provide feedback to students about their assignments.
- If you notice many students in your course had similar struggles on a quiz or test or assignment, consider sharing a video (with Canvas Studio) or message explaining the issue and how to solve it.
- Another strategy is after the first major exam, share a lesson to students about how to learn – how learning works, study strategies, etc.
- Use the Message Students Who feature in the Canvas gradebook to send messages to students who meet certain conditions, such as not having submitted an assignment yet or scored poorly on an exam or assignment.
