Is there any reason Quizzes Next wouldn't be automatically grading Multiple Choice Questions?

Hi  @emily_morgan ,

I am not aware of any reason a multiple choice question would not be auto-graded. Has this behavior persisted for you?

Hi, Kevin.

Yes, the issue is still there.  For additional context, this is what information I have.  We have Quizzes.Next Beta in our Production area, but we have a warning for faculty to NOT use it until we (Instructional Designers and IT) have had a chance to really learn the ins and outs.  Here's what instructors see:

One of my instructors "accidentally" used Quizzes.Next.  From what I can tell, he built the quiz correctly:  15 MC questions worth .5 pts each.  Total points 7.5.  For the settings, he allowed for Multiple Attempts (3), and chose "Highest" score to keep.

Students completed the quiz with no issue.  SpeedGrader is reflecting the students' selections; however, it does not record the points earned.  Every quiz shows 0/7.5 even though there are correct answers. 

I tried the "ReGrade" feature in both SpeedGrader (no change) and the Moderate tab in Quizzes.Next (change in the Moderate tab, but did not transfer to Gradebook). 

We've worked around this issue (manual grading) for now, but it is curious that this happened.  I believe this is the first "live" class that has attempted to use Quizzes.Next as it has operated just fine in our practice/testing courses (in fact, I think it is pretty slick!). 

Any insight you have would be appreciated, and feel free to contact me if you have more questions about what maybe happened.

Thanks for reaching out.

Hello  @emily_morgan .  I am reviewing older Quizzes.Next questions to determine if updates are appropriate.  It looks like a bug was identified and Kevin suggested it was being addressed.  I have been working with Quizzes.Next recently and haven't noticed any issue so suspect the bug was fixed not long after it was identified.  Since no posts have been made to this thread since February, I am going to mark Kevin's response as correct.  However if you are still experiencing problems, please let everyone here know.

All the best!
