Grade New Quizzes After Course Conclusion

Jump to solution

This help guide about grading New Quizzes says that "you cannot grade New Quizzes quizzes in concluded courses." This is a problem for our online courses where the final week's content is due on the final day of class. So the course closes at the end of the final day, but instructors still need to grade everything from the final week. Is this a problem for anyone else? It seems like a design flaw to be unable to grade New Quizzes after the course closes. Other assignments that are not New Quizzes are still able to be graded. 

If this truly is the intended design for New Quizzes, we won't be able to transition to them because our instructors have to be able to grade assignments (including any quizzes with essay questions) after the course ends.

Hello @caleb_koerperic 

As of now, that is correct - "concluded" courses can't have New Quizzes graded after the fact. We will have enhanced grading capabilities for New Quizzes but that isn't projected until later in 2023. You are welcome to continue using classic quizzes if you wish - especially if the teachers are accustomed to it. There are some work arounds, but it would require the course to be active still for grading. To clarify, there are a few ways a course ends. Grading periods, SIS dates, course setting dates, concluded, etc. Some of these can easily be manipulated and then reverted back, but the status of "concluded" will prevent New Quizzes from being graded. Hopefully  this helps.
