Grading Quiz that has restricted student use

Jump to solution

Hello,

What I am experiencing seems unbelievably unproductive and inefficient that I can only hope that I am overlooking something, and if not that this is corrected in New Quizzes (my institution is currently using Classic due to the myriad of issues associated with New).  

I created an exam using Classic Quizzes which I assigned to the entire class.  Due to some VPN issues for international students, I had to offer an alternative time.  I set the exam for only those students to access during this make up time.  Since the other students completed the exam, I figured I would grade those already submitted.  Low and behold when I clicked Speed Grader the only exams available were for students in the make up category!  Hmmm, thought I, well let's look at the grade book.  Maybe there I can access the submitted exams.  But to my surprise the submissions are not available in the gradebook - all students not in the make up group have empty cells for the midterm.

Please tell me I am missing something here.  Otherwise, this configuration is nonsensical.

Andy

Hi @ajw13 

When you limited the exam to just that special group of VPN users, you overwrote the availability for the rest of your users. You should have left the quiz as " Assigned to everybody",  then added an "Assign to" the special VPN Group. You would need to first create a separate section for the VPN group. Depending on the permissions your school has set for instructors in Canvas, you may need your school's Canvas support folks to help you create a section for the VPN students.

This guide will show you how: How do I assign a quiz to a course section?

And you might need this one: How do I edit sections for an enrollment in a course?

I hope this is helpful,

Kelley

Hi Kelley,

I appreciate you responding, but I am not concerned with the availability for other students but my inability to use speed grader to grade exams already submitted.  For example, a student in China misses the exam due to connectivity issues.  While the rest of the class completed the exam, I need to set a new window just for that student.  During that window, I would like to grade exams submitted but Canvas does not show those submissions.  I want to avoid availability for all students as there are other students who missed the exam without reasonable explanation - so just want to grant access to this single student.  My question is, why would Canvas block me, the instructor, from viewing any submitted quiz in speed grader regardless of student availability?
