Quizzes- Assign to section issue

Jump to solution

When teachers are assigning quizzes to different sections (bells) to make available at different times, I've run into issues when the "Assign To" dropdown doesn't list all the sections. For example, a teacher I work with has 5 sections in their Canvas course. When she was trying to assign a different available quiz time to each section, the first "Assign to" dropdown only showed 2 of her 5 sections (bells 3 and 5) and not the others.  I've tried everything I know to fix this (refresh the page, close and reopen, etc.) but it still seems to arbitrarily show a few of the possible sections, not all.

Could someone explain why this may be happening and how we could get it to automatically display all the sections in the Assign To dropdown?

emilycraddock​, I think the issue is that the "Assign to" isn't designed to show everything (all sections or all students) due to potential issues with large classes making list population be a time suck. I just created 6 new sections in a sandbox course and checked and only three sections show up for me when I go to "Assign to." Yet, if I typed in the name of the section it came right up and I was able to select it.

Hope this helps!

emilycraddock​, a feature idea for the ability to is currently open for voting, so if this functionality is important to you and your school, you might want to vote it up and contribute your use case to the comments.

Thank you! I’ll pass that info along as well!
