The “Grade with Kami” integration inside of Google Classroom is designed to make grading assignments much easier by giving teachers a wide variety of tools, easy access to the students’ work, and making it easy for the student to view that feedback by automatically sharing the teachers' annotations back to the file.

However, you don’t have to wait until the files have been turned in to view the student's work-in-progress, as the integration allows for that as well.

To view the student’s in-progress work, first make sure that the Kami Chrome Extension is installed onto the teacher device, as the Google Classroom assignment integration cannot be used without it. Then you can access the user's work by following these steps;

1. Open Google Classroom

2. Select the Kami assignment you want to check, and click “View Assignment”

3. Make sure the “Student Work” tab is selected

4. Click on the file you want to annotate.

5. Tick the “Grade with Kami” button under the submitted files.

This will load the selected student’s assignment file, and you can start annotating to add feedback, guidance, or intervention as necessary.

Once you have finished grading one person's work, you can use the arrows at the top of the grading screen to cycle to the next student’s work.


If you need to demonstrate the answer to a particular question, but don’t want to leave the full steps, or draw over the students work, one possible method would be to use the screen capture comment to demonstrate the working for that problem, and then erase the annotations used to demonstrate it, or create them in a separate instance of Kami.

When you are viewing the student's assigned files in Kami, you should be able to see two user icons in the bottom right, next to the page numbers. This can actually be used to check if a student has started working, as those icons won’t appear until more than one person has accessed the file through Kami. If those icons aren’t visible on the “Grade with Kami” window, then the student has not started their work yet.

If you encounter any issues whilst annotating the students work, or have any further questions, feel free to contact us on
