Inline Grading in the Assignment Tool

Assignments uploaded using the Assignment Tool are displayed directly in the browser. When viewing a document submitted with the Assignment Tool, that document is converted to a format that is viewable inside the web browser.

Instructors can provide feedback directly on these embedded documents in the form of on-page comments and highlighted text. Blackboard's help documentation has more information on how to annotate using this tool.

On December 20th, the "Crocodoc" tool will be replaced by a new grading tool called "Box View." Box View supports over 100 different file types, far more than have been supported so far. However, the ability to draw on a document that you're grading or download PDFs of students' work that include your annotations will be discontinued.
