Edits that teachers make to the question title should reflect back to the students. Currently students see Question 1, Question 2, Question 3 - regardless of what the teacher has in his/her quiz settings.
Thank you for sharing this idea, Lisa Risch. We notice that your screenshot reflects how questions display to students in Canvas (Classic) Quizzes. In Quizzes.Next, question titles do not display, and "Question 1" is replaced by a large number to the left of the question prompt.
Since any future development resources will be directed to ideas prioritized for enhancements and changes to Quizzes.Next, we've modified the title of your idea slightly to reflect that.
Unless controlled by an instructor-controlled setting, students should not see the label the teacher has created. To do so without the consent of the instructor might expose which question from a publisher's bank the question is and since those are generally not difficult for savvy or determined students to obtain, it would give away the answer. If the instructor wants to label the question for the student, they can do so as part of the question.
I'm generally of a fan of having less options rather than more to keep the interface simple. Putting those together, it shouldn't be there unless there's an option and I don't want an extra option for small things like this, that means I couldn't support this idea.
However, if Canvas would return to the previous behavior of supplying the name of the question through the API when the instructor asks for it, it would be very helpful.
The primary point for me is once again a disconnect between what I see when interfacing with canvas as an instructor, and what is made available to the students. For example, in forming a question I frequently provide a short title, so subsequent discussions can refer to the title and not the number. I enter something like below, but the students don't see "01: Hometown", they see "Question 1". For a terse question like this its not a huge deal, but when you get to move complicated questions it can be. At a minimum there should be a warning that the title below is getting stripped away. I should not have to go through "Student View" do discover this type of disconnect.
