Would it be possible to add a feature on the moderate quiz page on canvas so you could filter by section?
Teachers (especially in high school) should have an option, in new quizzes, to moderate individual classes. Presently, viewing all students is the only available option. It would be much easier to monitor classes during a quiz if there was a option to filter by section and have the ability to view one class at a time.
Thanks for sharing this idea. By "individual classes," do you mean sections or cross-listed sections within the same course? If so, would you please edit the idea to reflect that ("filter by section") so that it is consistent with Canvas terminology? That will help our members more effectively assess the problem statement.
Edited. Thank you for your help.
Thanks for making that edit! We've moved this idea forward for further discussion.
In a Cross-Listed course, the Moderate Quiz page needs a filter option. When I'm moderating my 1st period class, I need to see ONLY that section, not all three sections in the course - so that I can quickly tell who is IN class and doesn't have the quiz open yet.
How long until Classic Quizzes is no longer available? I'm not thrilled with having to learn yet ANOTHER new thing this year, but if I'm going to have to, I need to know when it will be necessary.

Thank goodness! So I can keep using Classic quizzes for the rest of this school year.
So, back to my original request. Sure would be nice if, for the next 8 months, we could have a filter option in Moderate Quizzes.
Our product teams are no longer developing new functionality on the code base for Old (Classic) Quizzes, as it will be deprecated early next year.
This would be extremely valuable, especially now during remote learning. I frequently have students complete a quiz before they exit class or during the lesson to get a general idea of their understanding. A section filter would give me immediate feedback on the students that are struggling and allow me to modify my lesson on the fly instead of having to page through to see which students did well and which did not.
We absolutely need this with distance learning! I like to use the moderate feature to ensure that students are starting / taking the test during our class time. Having to cross-reference my current class against the ENTIRE course is tedious and time consuming. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE put a rush on this one.
Please also add filtering by groups!
I also would love this feature. If we can't get it for some reason, could we at least get an alphabetized list? (Or, if I'm being greedy, both?)
Here are my student's first and last initials in the order they appear in the moderate page:
Why aren't the two J.D.'s near each other? They're also in the same section. It just feels random, and it's frustrating that there's no way to sort it.
I agree! I can filter by "In progress" which helps, but it still doesn't let me see which kids in a section haven't yet started.
You can? How do you filter by "In progress?"
On the moderate page, there is a pull-down menu. I've included a screenshot below.
At least this way I can see in one window who is currently taking the test, but I can't see which kids in my class haven't started it yet or which ones have already finished which is frustrating. I also can't see how much time is remaining for each student. Both of those are things that were possible with Classic Quizzes.
Oh, this is only in New Quizzes, right? I'm still using the original Quizzes.
Because I don't see anything like that on my Moderate Quiz page.
A filter by Section option in the quiz moderator would be extremely useful. I give the same quiz to 4 different sections, but almost never at the same time (except final exams). This feature would allow me to display only the section actively taking the quiz on a single page, instead of needing to constantly cycle through 2-3 pages showing all my students.
Seem like it could function very similar to the section filter in the Speed Grader.
I came to add my own "suggest an idea" post and this was exactly it! I'd really like the ability to filter or sort by section (or even group) in the "Moderate quiz" section. Glad I'm not the only one. Please add this feature for us! Seems like a very reasonable request! We can already sort in the speedgrader by many different options... should be applicable here too. Thanks
