Exporting Concluded Quiz Statistics

Jump to solution

I apologize if this has been asked before but I can't find an answer to this question.

I have a Canvas course that has concluded.  I need quiz statistics.  I have found responses here regarding Canvas beta (no access to any beta or test environment that I know of), reinstating students so that I can get grade statistics (no way to reinstate students, I don't have the button options shown in other answers from 2018) or changing the course end date (I do not have a Course Details Tab on the course settings page to change the dates).  

My issue is that I would like to see what questions are routinely answered correctly and which ones are wrong so that I can rewrite our pre-screening Canvas course with new questions where needed.  I cannot for the life of me figure out if this is even possible.

@john_preston: In another thread, I found a solution. Go go the assignment in Canvas. Then go up to the URL in the address bar of your browser. Add:

/statistics

to the END of the URL. For example, if the URL is...

https://community.canvaslms.com/t5/forums/replypage/board-id/questions/message-id/136184

then change it to:

https://community.canvaslms.com/t5/forums/replypage/board-id/questions/message-id/136184/statistics

That will bring you back to the Quiz Statistics or Survey Statistics and you will be able to do an Item or Question Analysis once again!

It appears like some universities have gotten rid of the ability for instructors to "conclude" their courses. Instead, just configure the "End" date of your course to prevent access by others. That will prevent the "Quiz Statistics" from being removed from the page. But if you have courses that are already concluded, just add /statistics as described above.

Why are there zero responses to this? And why would Quiz Statistics disappear when a course in concluded? How is that a good idea? 

The "Quiz Statistics" (or Survey Statistics) button completely disappears when courses are concluded. We have reasons why we need to generate these stats after courses conclude (for example, for accreditation purposes or just to better understand weak points in one semester that could be improved upon in the next). What use case justifies getting rid of this button?

Side note: This appears to be the reason why some universities have given up on concluding courses.
