Re-grading email

Jump to solution

When I regrade a quiz, the students get an email. I don't want them to get the email as they literally jump me before I've even had a chance to get to theirs begging for changes. Obviously they have no patience.

The old post 2019 post says to Hide or Mute the quiz/test. You cannot hide or mute a CANVAS quiz that has submissions. It says "Can't unpublish XXXX if they are student submissions."

What is the option in 2022? I want to turn off the emails not hide the quiz but I'll take either option at this point.

This is a new question and not related to another post from 2019 as the solution is not possible with this version of Canvas. I posted the old post from 2019 below for your reference.

Can the regrade email notification be turned off by admins?

An email gets sent out, "A regrade has finished for the quiz ......."

 

Our instructors don't necessarily want the students to know that they are "regrading".

@MelissaBedwell -

You should be able to handle this by changing the grading policy to manual for the assignment/quiz.  Once manual mode is selected, hide all of the posted grades.  When the grading is finished, post the hidden grades, and optionally you can reset the grading policy back to automatic (I do this in case I have to come back and change a grade or two - I don't want to have to worry about posting the grades).

The instructor manual page regarding grading policy for assignments 

I hope this solves your issue.

@bowmanr Is correct on this.  If instructor's don't want students to be aware of quiz re-grading, it is best that the Grade Posting be set to Manual for the Quiz in question.  Then when the instructor has finished grading the quiz, they can post the grades for the quiz for students to see.  Then only one notification about the quiz grade would be sent to students.
