Individual question name not showing in question bank?

Jump to solution

I've been working on some question banks for my fall classes, which will be my first time to use Canvas. As of this morning, I've noticed something that hasn't happened before. When I add new questions, I've been remembering (yay me!) to change the "Question" name field to something like "{question type} 1a", e.g. "Eval Exp 1a" for a problem on evaluating an exponential expression, and then I make a 1b, 1c, etc, so that I can later add these similar questions as a question group and randomly select 1 or more from the group. This makes it easier when I later construct the quiz to see how I intended the questions to be grouped.

However, as of this morning, when I edit the "Question" field, and then update the question, I see the new question title. However, as soon as I navigate away from that question bank page, and then back to the page, the title field reverts to the generic "Question".

To add to the oddity, I found that if I go into a quiz and search for a question, when it brings up the question banks and I select that bank, it DOES show me the new title that I gave to the question! So it IS saving the title, just not showing it on the question bank page...??

I am sure that it was not doing this the last time I worked on a question bank, a few days ago. It just started this morning for me. Anyone else having this problem? Any idea why?

Here, I have edited the first question title:

I leave the question bank page, and then return to it. The question title is now back to the generic "Question".

But if I go a quiz and search for a question, the titles are all intact:

For  @dmg34  and anyone else following this conversation, a feature that was implemented in the Canvas Production Release of June 4, 2016 was just rolled back, which has addressed the quiz question title editing issue. You should no longer be experiencing this problem. If you submitted a ticket on this, you should have received an update to this effect, or you will momentarily. Smiley Happy

 @dmg34 , another Community member posted a writeup of this exact issue in the Canvas Admins​ group (if you're not a member of that group, you'll need to click a few times to join it): Quiz question names replaced with generic "Question X"  This has been identified as a bug, and support is working on it. As I mentioned in my response to that question, if you want to receive updates on the status of the fix, please open a support case of your own; that way, you'll be notified of progress.

Hi stefaniesanders‌ -

Blast from the past on this conversation! But I just encountered this same behavior again. I'll submit a ticket momentarily, but figured I'd ping you since you were addressing the issue here when it arose before. Smiley Happy

Thanks for updating the conversation,  @G_Petruzella ‌, and for keeping the Community posted on the status of this pesky behavior!
