New Quizzes: Include Item Analysis for Graded Surveys in new Quiz Tool

New Quizzes: Include Item Analysis for Graded Surveys in new Quiz Tool

Item Analysis needs to be included for Canvas Quiz Surveys (both graded and ungraded), just like it is for Graded Quizzes. On the Statistics page, the Item Analysis button is currently greyed out (see attached), even though the same data is reflected in the Question Breakdown on the same page. 

A couple of examples of why these aggregate statistics would be useful are:

  1. Compiling survey data from a mid- or end-of-course survey
  2. Giving credit (with a Graded Survey) for the completion of a survey that you want to record the aggregate survey data

I understand that Canvas is phasing out the old Quiz tool, so this is a perfect opportunity to add this functionality to the new Quiz tool.

Hi,  @dan_baker , since New Quizzes doesn't have a native survey-type item, we've opened this for voting with a link to  https://community.canvaslms.com/ideas/15364-new-quizzes-survey-question-option-on-graded-quiz" modif..., as development of a survey question would be the prerequisite for an item analysis.

Thanks Stephanie. Good to get the car ahead of the horse! I wasn't aware that survey-type quizzes were not in the New Quiz tool yet.
