[OPEN] iOS Student | Cannot select list items in listbox questions in New Quizzes Pt. 2


Engineers are currently investigating the issue.


When opening a combobox/listbox in a New Quiz question, the focus goes to the next item on the page rather than going through the items in the dropdown.

Expected Behavior

After double-tapping the combobox/listbox, when the drop-down pops up, swiping right should navigate in to the drop-down, rather than to the next item in the page.


No workaround exists at this time.

Steps to Reproduce

Prerequisite: Published course with at least one student and a teacher. New Quizzes assignment with a drop-down question, like a matching question

  1. Go to the quiz in the iOS Student app

  2. Enable VoiceOver on iOS device

  3. Start the quiz

  4. Navigate to the drop-down in the question, double tap to expand the drop-down

  5. Swipe right, notice that it moves to the next item on the page, not through the expanded drop-down
