Smoother/Faster Editing

After you edit a student's work (add a sticker, mark it up, etc.) and click the green button it takes you back to the class journal. 

If I am in a specific activity that I'm trying to grade/edit I would like it to take me back to that activity. Otherwise I'm having to go to activities>scroll to find activity>student name. And while that only takes about 10 seconds when you multiple that by 25 students with 3/4 assignments a day it adds up to a lot of wasted time.

    Thank you all for this great feedback! Our team has just launched an update which allows a better workflow for teachers when editing posts or activity responses. Now when you edit a post or activity response from the web from the […] > Edit Post, we will open the creative tools in a new tab, then close that new tab when you click the green check to save your edits. We’ll also refresh the image to show your changes. Your place will not be lost! All you need to do to see this update is refresh your page!

  • I am very frustrated with grading activities in Seesaw.

    This is not fun at all.

    I thought I could get real creative and put stars on 100%,  or correct work by using text boxes, etc.. pasting an X by wrong answers.

    After I edit something and close it, it goes away vs. just writing in the comments and being able to click the next post. This is not good at all. 

    Once you close an assignment after editing it,... it goes away and so does the entire activity. Then you have to go and find it again.

    We do not have time for this.

  • Yes!  I would love this feature.  This stops me from adding stickers or writing corrections right on their work.  It takes way too long.  It would be so nice to right back to activity.

  • I came here to ask for the exact same thing. The time it takes to grade 100+ assignments on SeeSaw each week is painful. It should be an easy fix to have the website redirect us back to the activity page rather than the main home dashboard. Please make this happen for us virtual teachers!

  • I just posted this to the Seesaw Ambassador Facebook group:

     

    Hey all,
    A colleague yesterday remarked at how fast Seesaw loads student assignments compared to our mandatory LMS we use for posting assignments. I agreed with them, Seesaw is wonderful!

    However, I believe many of you would happily support this feature request to make the editing workflow smoother and faster to go from a student post to the overview of assignments (not be redirected to the student journal). I made a video to illustrate the problem and a solution.

  • Thanks for the work around, but that won’t work with IPads. Seesaw, please make an edit feature where we can seamlessly go from one to the next in edit mode, then turn off edit mode when finished editing activities for that assignment.

  • Yes, Seesaw, PLEASE HELP!! I cannot keep up with my first graders' work! I WANT to listen to them read and I want to correct misconceptions, but it is taking me over 7 HOURS a week to do a so-so job of giving feedback! Lots of that time is me toggling back and forth, in and out of edit mode. I LOVE the capabilities Seesaw is giving my remote first graders, but I'm drowning! Help!!

  • This is so huge! The extra amount of time it takes to correct errors and give meaningful feedback is soul-sucking. Please fix this!!

  • Hello everyone!

    I wanted to update this thread.  Seesaw has updated the workflow when correcting student responses.

    When you tap the 3 dots under a response and choose "edit", it will now open a separate tab in your browser.  You can edit the student work by drawing, typing, recording etc, and then tap the check mark.  It will automatically close the tab and take you back to the approval screen where you can quickly approve or send back and then go on to the next response.
