[New Quizzes] Show and Hide Quiz Results by Date

Allow a show/hide date range for the "Let Students See Their Quiz Responses (Incorrect Questions Will Be Marked in Student Feedback)" quiz setting.

In order to maintain test security, instructors often want to limit students from viewing their quiz results until after the due date for the quiz has passed.  Currently, the correct answers can be set to be shown and hidden on given dates, but students will still be able to see the questions, their responses, incorrect answers, and feedback prior to this date, and if an instructor wants students only to be able to see their results but not correct answers, the only way to do this is to uncheck the "Let Students See Their Quiz Responses" option then manually go back and enable it once the due date (or other chosen date) has passed.

Please add a date range selector like the one that is there for Let Students See the Correct Answers:

@melig , yes, we're all aware of that work around: the problem with that is twofold. First, it's not automated, and second, it doesn't allow for setting different dates for different groups (e.g., when one person has an extension, but everyone else should be prevented from viewing the answers until that one person is done).

Canvas please add this feature to New Quizzes. It is a very important feature for instructors to be able to set a date of when they want their students to see correct/incorrect answers after taking a quiz.

This is absolutely critical for enhanced integrity of online classes. Please add it soon and not in 3 years when the next release happens!

I'll add my voice here as well asking for this feature. The transition to New Quizzes will be much more difficult if the old engine offers an important tool that the new engine simply does not have.

A number of comments have suggested incorporating the due date into the scheduling the availability of feedback.  If that is in fact the case, it would be helpful if there were also an option to show after the "available until" date.   Instructors who permit late submissions would not want students seeing the correct answers or perhaps any details until after all students had submitted.


Personally, I favor making the options as granular as possible in terms of what types of feedback is available when. Faculty generally have very strong and well justified ideas as to what type of feedback is appropriate at any point during or after submitting a quiz. And requiring them to revisit the quiz settings in order to show or hide a specific type of feedback is not practical or reasonable.
