New Quizzes Grading Indication

New Quizzes Grading Indication

(68)
This idea has been developed and deployed to Canvas

New Quizzes Grading

New Quizzes allows mixed question formats which could result in some questions being auto graded and some needing manual grading. In the grade book, using Speedgrader, there is no indicator of what is fully graded and what is not unless you use the moderator on each student and view the attempts. Our idea was to have the Green check mark for fully graded quizzes, a Yellow dot for partially graded and a Red dot for ungraded that shows in the  Student Drop down list where you can currently see the Green check mark. Instructors often have to step away and it would a benefit if they can quickly see where they left off and return to grading.

Thanks for sharing this idea,  @leeann_edwards ; it's open for community consideration. You might also be interested in  https://community.canvaslms.com/ideas/14747-new-quizzes-dashboard-to-do

YES! With the soft closure, this was a nightmare. I always give my students multiple attempts, but this feature caused so much frustration. I had students who had redone their assessment, but I didn't know it. Going into each quiz to look for a new submission is a pain.

This is not only a great idea... but a greatly needed change/improvement.  I love the new quizzes, but this problem is really a big one.  It takes so much time to go through every single assignment, especially when they are allowed multiple attempts.  Please consider fixing this quickly.

This should be fixed ASAP. New Quizzes are not ready for Prime Time. I can't believe Classic Quizzes are being remove next summer when there are still so many inconsistencies and irregularities.

There needs to be a orange dot in speed grader for new quiz submissions that still require teacher grading. Currently there are only green check marks given for all submissions regardless if they have a pending teacher grading requirement or have been completely graded. Also it'd be great if there was a notification sent to students saying this assignment is pending teacher input.

New Quizzes need to be as user friendly as all of the other assignments, discussions and classic quizzes in terms of speedgrader and showing up in our to do list!

This needs to be fixed ASAP.  Teachers are spending way to much time on going back and going back to New Quizzes to see if students did it or not!  

Consistency in your programs is key! 

Fix asap!  Until then I am not using New Quizzes as all.  Its a waste of my time and its such a loss to me and my students because besides these small problems it is an incredible tool.

This NEEDS TO HAPPEN.

I have to be told be a student that they turned in an assignment late before I know it was turned in.  I have gone all quarter without know a student turned in most of his assignments.

Yes! This is especially true for large assignments that take a while to grade. I want to sync the ones that are completely graded and not those I still need to review.

Please fix this. It is one of the biggest issues with new quiz.

This missing functionality should be treated as a critical bug, not a feature request.

It is essential to have an indicator of new quizzes that need grading, because it is so easy to miss resubmissions or late submissions.  The color coding is easily blocked by the color coding of dropped scores, and an ungraded late submission or resubmission is usually one of the lowest grades. 

Also, once the gradebook can detect and display which new quizzes need grading, it would be great if there was a filter that displayed only the gradebook columns that need grading:  https://community.canvaslms.com/t5/Idea-Conversations/Ungraded-work-filter/idc-p/439144#M45334

Adding my support to this idea. This is one of the many reasons we have not enabled New Quizzes at our institution, despite many requests.

Reccomendation for Canvas update: When we are using the old quiz vs. the new quiz there is one feature that sticks out to our Team that provides frustration in the new quiz. I am sure they will update it in a few weeks.
 
Old quiz: When an essay or gradable question is added the student grade shows up as a paper in grade or a yellow dot in speed grader, signifying to the teacher that it needs to be graded.
 
New Quiz: When an essay or gradable question is added the students grade in the gradebook or speed grader does not reflect that a question needs to be graded. In order to notice a question needs to be graded you need to open the assignment in speedgrader and it states it at the top. Scrolling through every assignment has been taxing.

Because New Quizzes automatically grades the essays and sets them to 0, there's not easy way for me to see which assignments I've graded and which I still have left to do. Please bring back the Classic Quizzes feature of leaving essay questions UNGRADED and please also bring back the "orange dot" or "document symbol" for ungraded essay quizzes.

Is there a way to notify a teacher when a student has completed a quiz that we need to grade?  I have students complete the "new quizzes" and it shows up in my grade book, but I do not know that it is there unless a student tells me that they have completed a quiz.  If they turn in a quiz late, the box is blue, but nothing tells me I need to grade the short answer questions.  A notification of some sort or add it to my to-do list?  Anything to tell me I have a quiz to grade would be great.
