How do I add an assignment that includes anonymous grading?

When creating an assignment, you can choose to set up an assignment with anonymous grading. Selecting the anonymous grading option hides student names from graders when they view assignment submissions in SpeedGrader.

If anonymous grading is not enabled as a feature option in your course, you can enable anonymous grading in SpeedGrader on a per-assignment basis at any time.

You can add annotations and comments in DocViewer when Anonymous Grading is enabled. If you want to use DocViewer tools and create anonymous comments in the submission, you can enable Anonymous Instructor Annotations in your assignment instead.

Notes:

  • Anonymous grading is currently a course opt-in feature. To enable this feature, learn how to manage feature options in the course features lesson.
  • You or an admin can enable or disable the anonymous grading option at any time. Any edits made to the assignment will be tracked, and auditing tools will be added to help with accountability in a future release.
  • Anonymous grading can be enabled with moderated grading assignment options.
  • Anonymous assignments automatically default to a manual posting policy. Grades for anonymous assignments, like other manual post-policy assignments, are not displayed to students until assignment grades are posted.
  • Posting grades for an anonymous assignment will remove anonymity from the assignment.
