"Regrade" option for Multiple Dropdown questions

"Regrade" option for Multiple Dropdown questions

(2)

I'd like to suggest having "regrade" dialog appear for Multiple Dropdown, as those are objective response questions (like Multiple Choice and Multiple Answer. It's a time saver. Thanks.

Thank you for your idea!  It will open for voting, March 1, 2017, as part of the relaunch of feature idea voting!  Find out more about the changes we made in Changes are here: New feature idea processes went live Friday! (2/24/17)

Why is this even open for voting? I view this as a bug. Why would Multiple Choice (for example) have a regrade option but Multiple Dropdowns does not? This is not a "feature request." Any automatically graded quiz question should have a re-grade option. That's just common sense. This is a bug report, not a feature request.

Similarly, it's weird that if you create a graded survey, you cannot select a correct answer even though the Survey Statistics clearly show a correct response. In order to specify the correct answer, you have to convert the survey to a quiz temporarily to reveal the "correct answer" arrows. Then, after saving and converting BACK to a graded survey, it is possible to get the correct coloration in the survey statistics. This too should be viewed as a bug (related to this one). Graded surveys should have "correct" answers even if they're just surveys.

This limitation should be added to the question format instructions, visible at question selection.

This is absolutely imperative for quantitative quizzes.

Regrades must be completed manually as 'fudge points' with the incorrect answer still visible. Not a good solution.

Sadly, because Canvas has shifted all of its efforts into New Quizzes (Quizzes.Next), I would be shocked if there was any further development on classic quizzes. Of course, especially now that all of us are teaching online, none of us can use New Quizzes because New Quizzes cannot be locked down. So I guess we just have to get used to manually re-grading "auto-graded" questions for hundreds of students.

Just came across this issue during the first week of classes. It makes no sense that you cannot regrade all the items. This seems like a massive oversight. Disappointing to see it's been an issue for years.

I emphatically agree with the comments above. No reason this should not be able to be regraded. Please fix this bug Canvas!
