bulk downloading Canvas 'quiz' uploads

Jump to solution

c. 300 students have uploaded 4 PDF files each for an online Canvas 'quiz'.

I want to bulk download these to mark them more efficiently.

It seems that I do not have this option in Canvas: the 'download' option doesn't exist for me under Speedgrader or elsewhere.

How do I do this?

Guesses:

[1] Canvas 24/7 support : has anyone had success getting help with this from them?  ("can't help you" is the reply we've just received, after escalating it.  This is poor customer support: Canvas has access to these files; ZIPping them to me couldn't be more than 5 min work.)
[2] Canvas API pull
[3] Third party slurper (e.g. a Chrome extension)

Any help appreciated - thanks!

Colin

@thovey: can you mark this 'closed' rather than 'solved': the 'solution' indicated is that 'there is no solution' (although, had I set the Quiz up as an Assignment instead, I could bulk download the files).

It seems a few minutes work for someone at Instructure to pull the files and ZIP them to me.  Refusing to do this sends a very strong message about your willingness to support customers.
