I'd like to see an option to "display in grade book" for UNgraded surveys and practice quizzes.
That way we can provide student feedback. For instance, I like to have students complete a "self assessment progress report". I set it up as a "graded" survey worth zero points so that I can see it in the grade book and respond to each student. I made all the questions worth zero points as a work around.
But I also like to provide "extra credit" quiz that I only use to drop some other lower grade. If this is done as a regular (graded) quiz, students gain points as soon as they submit it. Then when I check later to determine if I want to use it to substitute for something else and find that I do NOT want to use it this way, I have to "excuse" the practice quiz. Then the student sees their point total has gone down and they get distressed and I get emails from them having to explain this. If I could just set a graded quiz to "not count toward grade" or for a practice quiz to "display in grade book" (display points but not add them to point total), that would be nice.
Another option might be to allow "complete/incomplete" as an option for graded quizzes or surveys (so they don't add points).
