[New Quizzes] New Gradebook, Late Policies, and Multiple Quiz Attempts ding On-Time submissions

Canvas white logo

This change has been shelved by our product team. Multiple attempts and late policies are not compatible in correcting this behavior.

Description

 

Late Policies enabled with New Gradebook can cause unpleasant score calculations for On-Time attempts for Multiple Attempt quizzes in 2 out of 3 cases, when one or more of the attempts is Late.

  • If the Score to Keep is set to Average, and there is an attempt after the due date, we take the average of all the scores and then ding that average.
  • If the Score to Keep is set to Highest Attempt, and the Highest Attempt is not the attempt after the due date, the score is dinged.
  • If the Score to Keep is set to Latest Attempt, everything works properly.

 

Expected Behavior

 

To be determined by Product, however,

  • Average: It seems better to only subtract points from the late submission(s), and then average all the submissions.
  • Highest: It seems better to not penalize the On-Time submission if it is the highest.

 

Steps to Reproduce

 

Prerequisites: In a published course with student enrollments, have New Gradebook and a Late Policy enabled.

  1. Create a quiz that has a due date and allows for multiple attempts. Set the Score to Keep to Highest or Average.
  2. As a student, take the quiz before the due date.
  3. Wait for the Due Date to pass.
  4. Take the quiz again, and do slightly worse.
  5. Notice that your on-time submissions are penalized, in addition to your late submissions.
