Is there a way to have essay questions in New Quizzes display an answer key?

Is there a way to have essay questions in New Quizzes display an answer key?

I know there is a "grading notes" area for essay questions. I would LOVE LOVE LOVE there to be a way to display these AFTER the quizzes have been graded via a toggle similar to showing answers for multiple choice, etc.

This feature has GOT to be very easy to implement. Otherwise, the test grader has the choice of not explaining an answer key at all, or to copy and past many many "grading notes" into the Feedback section for essay questions.

Maybe: do an automatic copy of "Grading Notes" to "Feedback" after grading? 

Come on Canvas: there has to be an easy solution that MANY of us have been asking for!

Hello @rharvey1 

There will be improvements to your options with New Quizzes very soon regarding enhanced features and options for essay questions, instructions, etc. So that you have the same capabilities that you currently have when setting up an assignment and some features within classic quizzes. You are looking for an answer key for your students to have access to when they answer essay prompts? Would this be similar to a list of pre-determined answers like you would have in "matching" question types? Or are you really just trying to give the students a resource while answering the prompt  question? You could always insert an image or screenshot of the answer key to the question directly. But check out the upcoming release notes for New Quizzes - what you're looking for may be here.
