I am just beginning setting tasks and developing my markbook (used to use google classroom) How can I test the work I have set- I have a "test student" listed in my class and in my markbook.

Thanks,Camille

Howdy,

@mmeehan when in student view, at the bottom of the screen in the pink bar, the "Reset student view" button will remove all things done by the test student and reset it back to default state.

Hi @mmeehan ...

Something else that you can try (besides what @chadscott mentioned) is to go into your course "Settings" page and then click on the "Sections" tab.  Then, under the "Course Sections" heading, click on the link that lists your course.  A listing of all students in your course will load under "Current Enrollments".  You should see one for "Student, Test" with a long string of alpha-numeric characters.  Hover your mouse over that one, and you might see a red/white "x" icon.  If you click on the "x" icon, this would remove "Student, Test" from your course completely...until you start using the "Test Student" role again...which would re-add this "fake" student back to your course.  Rinse and repeat to get rid of "Student, Test" again.

I hope that helps a bit.  Let Community members know if you have any other questions about this...thanks!

No, I actually mean, doing the task (as if a student in my class), so I can test if the google drawing task works smoothly, how it looks when its submitted. etc. 

Thanks

Thank you for the additional information.  Actually, you might still be able to use "Student View" for this.  I say "might" because I'm not completely sure if you'll be able to access the Google drawing via "Student View"...so you'll have to try this from your end.  (I've never used Google drawing tasks before.)  So, use "Student View" to go into your assignment, try to submit it like a normal assignment in Canvas, and see if it works.  Another option for you would be to speak with your school's local Canvas administrator or someone in your school's Online Learning / eLearning department to see if they might be able to help do some testing with you.

I hope this helps, Camille.

I need to remove a task from a test student - how do I do this? I was testing that I had everything right and now I cannot unpublish the quiz because a student (me as the test student) has submitted the task. What do I do?
