How do I enable anonymous instructor annotations in student submissions?

When creating an assignment, you can enable anonymous instructor annotations in DocViewer supported submissions. When students view a submission with anonymous instructor annotations in DocViewer, comments do not display an instructor's name.

This option only affects comments added in DocViewer in the SpeedGrader submission window. Comments added in the Speedgrader sidebar are not anonymous.

Notes:

  • Anonymous instructor annotations is currently a course opt-in feature. To enable this feature, learn how to manage feature options in the course features lesson.
  • Anonymous Instructor Annotations is not associated with the Anonymous Grading feature and displays as an option in all assignments.
  • If you select this checkbox after student submissions are received, any annotations already made in DocViewer will not be anonymous. Ensure this checkbox is selected before allowing students to submit assignments.
