How do I restrict students from viewing assessment results in New Quizzes?

You can manage if students can view their assessment results in New Quizzes. You can also select which result items are visible to students, including points awarded, points possible, questions, responses, and feedback.

Hello,

Something from Classic quizzes that would be a nice feature added to New Quizzes, is the date feature to release the feedback.  That way faculty members do not need to worry about remembering to go back into the quiz and turn on correct responses.  If this is in the tool already that's great, but as I was doing some digging, I didn't see that feature available anywhere.

Thanks,

Crystal

I completely agree with Crystal's comment.  I tried the new quiz format this semester and my students are hating it because they can't see what they got right or wrong.  The issue is that I'm not going to allow students to see what's right or wrong before the quiz is closed - it just makes cheating that much easier.  With the old quizzes I could set everything up in advance including specifying a when students would be able to see their responses and the right answers along with when they lose access again.  With the new quiz structure I have to manually remember to go in and open and close everything and with all I have to do to manage my classes this gets missed - a lot.  That frustrates students and it frustrates me as an instructor.  I'd really like to see that capability put back in or give us the option to retain classic quizzes - they worked great.
