Does choosing "show correct response" mean a student ONLY sees the correct answer or what they answered too?

Jump to solution

As I understand it (and PLEASE someone correct me if I'm wrong) - if an instructor chooses "Only After Their Last Attempt" on a multiple attempt quiz and the student fails to use all the allowed attempts, then Canvas will not show the student their quiz responses because Canvas doesn't know the student has made the final attempt. In this setting example, the student who does not use both attempts will then not see responses until Jun 24 when the student sees the correct responses (and does this mean the student will ONLY see the correct response, or will Canvas show the student the complete item, including the student's response (incorrect or correct) AND the correct response noted?)

cholling, A lot of this depends on EXACTLY how your quiz settings are applied. The following examples explain the differences and what the student sees/doesn't see.

Example 1: Both "Only after their last attempt" boxes are checked, the student won't see ANYTHING until they use up their last attempt. Even after the "show correct answers at" time has passed, the FIRST only after their last attempt is blocking this. Before the show correct answer date the students get a message in red that, "Correct answers will be available on Jun 14 at 9:20am." Above that message is the note that, "Quiz results are protected for this quiz and are not visible to students until they have submitted their last attempt." After the show correct answer date the student will see a light red bar with the following message if they try to view the quiz results - " Answers will be shown after your last attempt"

Example 2: Only the FIRST "Only after their last attempt" box is checked. In this example the student won't see ANYTHING until they use up their last attempt. Before the show correct answer date the students get a message in red that, "Correct answers will be available on Jun 14 at 9:20am." Above that message is the note that, "Quiz results are protected for this quiz and are not visible to students until they have submitted their last attempt." After the show correct answer date the student will see a message that, "Quiz results are protected for this quiz and are not visible to students until they have submitted their last attempt."

Example 3: Only the SECOND "Only after their last attempt" box is checked. And in this example the student can immediately see (even after the first attempt) the questions, answer options, what answer they selected, and if they got the question correct. In this example, the student will still not see the correct answers until they use their last attempt on the quiz. The student will see a light red bar with the following message if they try to view the quiz results - " Answers will be shown after your last attempt"
