Q. Can an instructor have private notes about an assignment that students do not see?
There currently is not an ideal function for this request. This is closest idea I have found on the subject: This may be something that the Faculty Journal could help with. Faculty Journal entries are attached to a student, not an assignment. They also move with the student throughout their time with their Canvas school. Keep in mind thought that all professors can see the comments in any course the student is in from then on. This is the behavior we want in the project-based program I work with but it may not work for you. The faculty journal can be turned on by an admin or implementation manager if you want to try it.
