Why do SpeedGrader’s annotations on student assignment images disappear?
SpeedGrader works well but you do need to be aware of some of it’s quirks. A commonly reported SpeedGrader issue is that drawn annotation on images submitted by students are not saved.
The solution for markers is to save each annotation. To demonstrate the issue:
- Open the [SpeedGrade] submission
- Add your annotation
- Then add some marks. Save.
- Add a comments and Submit.
- Now close SpeedGrader.
- Reopen SpeedGrader – and you now can see that the annotation is missing.
The solution to that is to redraw the annotation; but this time select the tick box [top-left on the annotation]. That saves the annotation.
So if we close SpeedGrader and reopen it – the annotation will be there.
