Image Embedding Should Prevent Updates and Deletions

Image Embedding Should Prevent Updates and Deletions

0 Kudos

Since SpeedGrader does not show previews of uploaded images in a quiz when instructors are grading, we use the essay question type and ask students to embed an image. This way, they see a preview when they are working on the quiz, and instructors can see the image when grading without having to leave SpeedGrader.

The issue is that this embedded image is a link and not a file itself. So if a student submits their quiz and then deletes the image, an instructor cannot see their work. Further, it doesn't seem that anything would prevent a student from changing their image after submitting the quiz, so they would be able to change their answer.

When grading, there is even a message that states this when hovering over the image: "This is an image, not text, and could have changed since the student submitted."

I would like a file embed to behave like a file upload in that the quiz contains a copy of the image which cannot be removed or changed by the student.

Thanks for sharing this idea. Before we move it forward for broader discussion, can you confirm that you are experiencing this when grading quizzes created in New Quizzes? I ask because our product teams are no longer developing new functionality on the code base for Old (Classic) Quizzes, which is scheduled to be deprecated next year.

Thanks for letting us know!

@Stefanie This is an issue with Classic Quizzes

Thanks for confirming that this is specific to Classic Quizzes. As noted, we aren't developing any new functionality on the code base for Classic Quizzes, so we're archiving this idea.

The resources in the New Quizzes User Group should help you get started with trying out the new quiz tool in your courses; if you don't see the option to enable it in the settings area of a course, please reach out to your local Canvas Admin for guidance on the timing of its availability at your school. And once you've had a chance to use it in live courses, if you still find that this is an issue in Speedgrader, please share the idea as new at that time.

Thanks again
