Quiz Notifications

Jump to solution

Quick question - Does Canvas notify students when correct answers are available for a quiz (other than the on-screen message that appears at submission)?

Thanks!

 @shouts ​, from this pdf - https://s3.amazonaws.com/tr-learncanvas/docs/CanvasNotifications.pdf (pg 5-6) - I got from this guide - How do I set my Notification Preferences? - it appears that the things that trigger a notification include:

  • Grade is entered
  • Grade is changed
  • Assignment grade is unmuted
  • Assignment grade weight change

So no, it does not look like students get a notification when the correct quiz answers are available.

Thank you Kona. Very helpful! Appreciate it.

I've just done a quick experiment and  @kona ​ posted her response while I was waiting for my experiment to finish! As she said, it doesn't give any notification when the answers become available. I was hoping that something would appear for the student under "Recent feedback" on the righthand side of the screen, but sadly not. They just have to remember to go back to the quiz at the specified date/time.

I agree that it would be useful to receive notifications for this and I was surprised that I couldn't find any feature ideas about it, so you might consider submitting an idea of your own.

I added a feature idea for this type of notification.

Thanks! Sarah
