I have developed an escape room module that uses mastery paths as the basis for students moving through review materials. However, we have several issues with mastery paths that make it unusable in this fast-paced context
We have worked with Canvas support and rebuilt the escape room module but are still having the same problems despite the rebuilt. Can someone help?
Thanks in advance.
Solved! Go to Solution.
@laura_gogia1 , I'm sorry to hear that you're having this problem! What has support said in terms of why you are experiencing this issue and what did they think would fix it? Redoing it? Have you reopened the ticket to let them know you are still having this issue? If not, then I'd definitely do that!
We have put in a ticket and we redid the site, but the problem is with mastery paths. It takes a very long time to load. I was hoping that bringing some attention to the issue- and making sure that Canvas knew it is a “real” limitation - would somehow put it higher on the priority list for improvement.

This is definitely unacceptable. I have configured a course with Mastery Paths and the issues are making the course highly problematic. This is a course meeting a state requirement that students take quizzes on their "online learning skills" and receive remediation for any areas in which they are week. I have set up modules for each quiz and remediation. Students who "fail" the quiz get the remediation and then a confirmation. Because the quizzes are taking so long to process, the course is not working. I am submitting a ticket as well, but after this having been released for so long it is a huge concern that the functionality is not really usable.
This was NOT the case last year. We have used Mastery Paths extensively and our students were always assigned their new assignments immediately upon submitting their quiz.
Now more often than not, we get the message that Mastery Paths are locked until the quiz has been graded. The problem is that he quiz grades automatically and IS already graded.
This is making our course a nightmare. We rely on Mastery Paths to make our course work.
Sara - We are seeing a definite issue in our Mastery Course as well. We have multiple students getting "stuck" in progress - for no reason at all. You can see that the quiz has a score - but the path does not progress. This has been creating havoc with the prospective students who must get through this mastery course as part of their admissions process. Totally a nightmare.
(We do have a ticket and it has been assigned up to the engineers, but we are getting piecemeal, one-off answers rather than a true fix.)
A long-shot--is the quiz that launches the mastery path hidden? In other words, if it's set to Manual grade posting, or if the grade is hidden, could this stop students from progressing? Last summer, the manual posting prevented some of my students from retaking a test (if they were allowed 4 attempts, or whatever, they couldn't proceed past the first attempt if the quiz is set to manual).
Just an idea.
Unfortunately, no. Most of the time the quiz that launches the mastery path grades automatically. The grade is posted immediately upon submission.
We do sometimes use quizzes with questions that need to be graded manually. We have have seen this issue from time to time with those quizzes also, but usually once the manually graded questions hae been scored, the Mastery Path assignments open.
We are seeing the same behaviour and it's now October - 7 months since this thread was started. Effectively makes Mastery Paths unusable.... unless I'm missing something.
