How do students view quiz results when they don't take all attempts?

Jump to solution

Faculty member gives students two attempts to take a quiz. Faculty sets the date that students can see their quiz responses. However, if the student only takes the quiz once, not twice, they don't get to see their results. How can we get around that. Students to get to decide if they want to take it twice, they should not be forced to if they choose not to, and it may negatively impact their grade depending upon the way faculty score subsequent attempts. So how do we get around this? No matter what settings we opt for if you don't take that quiz again you don't get to view your results. Please see the screen shots to see more detail.

In the first screen shot we see that the student will get results at a per-determined time set by the faculty.

In the second screen shot we see that the student will not get results because they chose not to take the second attempt.

Why is the UNTIL button not controlling the release of the results rather than the number of times they took the quiz?

Thank you,

Karen Matson

 @kmatson , you also state, "because it is a quiz the Set Default Grade is not there." There's definitely something odd going on, because it should be there. Indeed, the guide for this-- --even uses a quiz as an example.


Are we dealing with other factors here as well? Multiple grading periods? Differentiated assignments?

Any idea why the Set Default Grade was not there or what triggers it not to appear? I just ran a quick test in my course and I have the Set Default Grade but it was not there for her.  Is there any setting in Canvas I didn't consider as to why it wasn't in her drop down?

Thanks so much for the very fast response to the issue and if you have any insights as to what might have driven it to not be present for her.


No,  @kmatson ‌, only the ones I mentioned in my earlier post, unless we're talking about a concluded course that is in read-only state--but judging from your earlier post, that doesn't seem to be the case. This might warrant a support ticket from the instructor.
