New Quizzes: Allow multiple attempts on a quiz, with diminishing points after the first attempt

I am an instructional designer supporting and instructor who is using team based learning. In his course he has students take a quiz individually, then the same quiz as a team. The second team based quiz allows multiple attempts but penalizes the students for each subsequent attempt. The purpose of this is to encourage students to discuss what the correct answer should be before submitting.

This is similar to what is described here: https://community.canvaslms.com/t5/Question-Forum/Is-it-possible-to-allow-multiple-attempts-on-a-qui...

Currently in the Canvas Quiz it is possible to keep the highest, or average of scores. It would be helpful to be able to implement this strategy.

@rexj, please consider adding a star rating on this idea which would be need to be built in order for part of your idea here to be possible:

Thanks for pointing out the other idea, @RobDitto . Done. 👍

I see the dependency. Hopefully both will be implemented.

This is sorely needed and is long overdue as a feature in Canvas. A must for those using team-based learning, especially with the increase in distance/online teaching related to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Agree- this would increase the learning potential as students in teams would continue to discuss the other options and work together to find the correct answer (after seeing their first selection was not correct). It would allow us to use Canvas instead of finding a different technology for TBL classes. Please consider.

Thank you, @NicholeRupnow .

Can you share options for supporting TBL that you have used? Specifically ones that support multiple attempts with penalties?

Thank you!

Agree with comments above - the ability to administer quizzes that allow this feature would greatly enhance the ability to administer team-based learning via Canvas!

This functionality would facilitate use of team-based learning, to be more specific, team-based quiz via Canvas.

@SuSorensen the idea that the author links to appears Resolved. What I hear by the person "resolving" the issue is: "sorry, you're out of luck but a solution is something you already know and isn't what you're asking for! good luck though."

This particular idea is something provided by a company dedicated to books, standardized tests, etc. They are by no means competitors, since they don't provide an LMS that I know of. So, why not reach out. The new age can't progress without networking and this is an opportunity to do so. 

 

Is NewQuizzes open source? If not, can it be? If not, why not? I'm sure there are many capable individuals that would be willing to find a fix that Canvas could obviously "monitor" and would help us all reach those teaching/learning peaks technology is capable of taking us to.

@rexj For TBL... we have used IF-AT scratch off cards (for in-person) and we tried a pilot semester of InteDashboard technology (for online TBL).  Both allow for partial points to be awards for second choices.  Otherwise, if we use Canvas quizzes- we do not give credit for the "second" choice.

Thank you, @NicholeRupnow . I will look into those tools. I so wish Canvas would support this.

I would very much like to see this capability added to Canvas. I use TBL regularly in my classes, and the multiple attempt quizzes described here lead to some great discussions between students. My institution is switching from Canvas to Moodle, and while I am happy about the move overall, I will be very disappointed to lose this feature. If Canvas would consider adding this feature, I would greatly appreciate it.

Moodle seems to allow multiple attempts on a single question and diminishing points after each attempt. Canvas does not have this feature.

@yang2193 - I concur.

I would really like to see this feature added to Canvas. I use TBL regularly in my classes, and the multiple attempt quizzes described here would be very helpful so that we didn't have to pay for a subscription to InteDashboard, and so that we could better facilitate remote TBLs without needing the scratchoff cards that we use for in-person learning.
