Do Not Show 'Correct Answer' Flags in Teacher View of Graded Survey in Speedgrader

We are using Graded Surveys because they do not provide a ‘right’ or ‘wrong’ answer indication to students for each question; rather, students receive an overall score (we use ‘100’ to indicate completion) when they submit their assignment. When students look at the Grades area for any assignment that is not muted, they will see their submission. For them, every answer will be marked ‘Your Answer’ with no indication that something might be correct/incorrect. This is good.

 

However, in the teacher's view of SpeedGrader, the first answer choice for each response is marked as ‘Correct’ – even on Graded Surveys which don't have 'right' or 'wrong' answers (that’s why we are using the Graded Survey functionality in the first place). This is inconvenient/confusing for our teachers who have to consciously disregard the red and green flags indicating that answers are right/wrong when in fact they are neither.

 

We request that whenever a Graded Survey is created, the teacher AND student view of the submitted responses should indicate "Your Answer" not the "Correct/Incorrect" answer flags. This should be the case in Speedgrader as well as in the grades area one sees when clicking on an individual student name in Speedgrader (which looks like it SHOULD be identical to what students see when they click on Grades).

 

Thank you!

Agreed. The data side needs to be addressed too. Right now I'm looking at an ungraded survey with the first option being marked as correct on the survey statistics. Any movement on getting this fix too?

The "Survey Statistics" still reflect that surveys have correct answers even though surveys now do not have the ability to select a correct answer. If "Survey Statistics" are going to act as if there is a correct answer, we should have the ability to select which is currently the correct answer.

At the moment, the only way to change what "Survey Statistics" thinks is a correct answer is to convert the Survey to a Quiz, select the correct answers for the quiz, save those answers, and then convert it back to a Survey. 

Why not just give us the option of selecting a correct answer but also the option of clearing all correct answers to allow for true surveys?

Many of us use graded surveys as a substitute for graded practice quizzes -- i.e., quizzes that have correct answers but are only graded for completion. This "feature request" has made it harder to do that.
