    There were two now archived feature ideas submitted to the Canvas Community, entitled “Restore Quiz Statistics” and “Drill Down to Individual Students”, both of which essentially asked Canvas to restore instructors’ abilities to directly see ON the Quiz Stats page which students selected each quiz answer. This is SO much easier and far less time consuming than needing to download a cumbersome spreadsheet file and plod through multiple questions and multiple students to discern which students gave particular answers for multiple questions.  This feature was very helpful in preparing both group AND individualized feedback for students.  Canvas used to have this wonderful feature, but for some reason eliminated it late this spring.  I honestly don’t understand why it was eliminated.  Yes, Canvas Community members could have upvoted the original "Restore Quiz Statistics" and "Drill Down to Individual Students" feature ideas, but I submit many didn't know this feature was removed while the voting period was open during the summer months.


    Thanks to all for considering this suggestion!
