Canvas should provide the possibility to prevent students to stop their quiz and get it back a few minutes later like Lockdown browser do.
In Blackboard we had the option named "Force Completion", we should have the same with Canvas
I disagree. If you do a simple google search for Blackboard Force Completion you'll find numerous school's web sites specifically saying to NOT use that feature in Bb. If there is any sort of network glitch or even an accidental closing of a web window the student cannot complete the quiz.
A couple of example quotes from school web sites:
With force completion on, students get kicked out of a test if there’s any connectivity loss or disruption (College of DuPage sums this up well) and can only complete it if the instructor resets the test (by ignoring or deleting that test attempt).
Like prohibit backtracking, this setting won’t “break” Blackboard, but it’s tricky, easy to mess up and we don’t recommend using it. - Blog site from a college Bb support person
Those were all just from page 1 of a search on the topic. I understand the need for securing access to Quizzes; but this is a feature request I would not support.
Thanks for your comment Rick
By definition, an option means "you are not obliged to use it"
The professor can be available just in case, up to him/her to decide.
As a teacher, I would never use this option, it is fraught with too many nightmare memories of panicked students trying desperately to contact me to reset their tests. As an admin it represents way too many contacts from frantic students to reset a test because they cannot contact their instructor, or their instructor refuses to respond back to them. A reset we could not do without instructor permission, and many times we would face delays in getting the teacher to respond to us then their students.
No thank you!
Machiavellian and draconian feature at best. As one college stated "It looks good on paper, but.............!"
I'm looking for an opportunity to be educated, if anyone responds to the following. Perhaps the following points are based on misconceptions.
1) We select forced completion with Respondus Lockdown Browser, though not widely. It seems to me if someone chooses to use a lockdown browser, not having forced completion defeats its purpose.
2) Allowing people to search the web during a quiz makes every assessment an open book test, which in many cases seems to me to undermine the validity of the test, or, at least, turn every quiz into a formative assessment.
3) Are these matters addressed at all in Quizzes.next?
