Speed Up SpeedGrader!

speedometerSpeedGrader can be an efficient and powerful tool for viewing, annotating, commenting and grading student work.  But a few tweaks can fine tune it for faster instructor performance!

Instead of scrolling through a long list, grouping students by Needs Grading, Graded, and No Submission makes it easier to get through a batch of assignments.

Use keyboard shortcuts

SpeedGrader has several built-in keyboard shortcuts for navigating.  Mousing around a screen takes time, and a toll on the wrist, so mastering a few simple keyboard shortcuts can make repetitive tasks go faster and hurt less.
