    In many of the texts I use in my discipline, we have study guides or workbooks that the students complete. Currently, the only way I can create an assignment to grade these submissions is to set up a quiz.  Even though I instruct the students that this is not truly a quiz, but a graded assignment, the mere mention of a quiz, throws them into text anxiety.  This is not helpful.  Please consider other types of graded assessments besides quizzes.  Perhaps the ability to add just another type of assessment would be beneficial?

    Hello Friends,

    We are considering a way to classify testing-engine specific assigned content with a qualifier like Assignment, Assessment, Check-up, Exam, Final, Mid-term, Quiz, etc. This is an idea under consideration.  Does a dropdown that adds a descriptor to the title meet your needs?
