Surveyor

Why does a quiz/survey not show on student's To Do LIst?

Jump to solution

I have a quiz (that is a survey and so everyone gets 5 points for completing it) that is due tomorrow and it does not show up in the students TO DO LIST.  Another quiz that gets graded does appear.  Any ideas why?

Howdy ecass@usf.edu‌,

Thanks for posting your question. Graded quizzes (event ones with possible points of 0) show in the Course Summary, Gradebook, Calendar and To-Do List. However, I believe that practice quizzes do not display in those areas- even if they have a due date.

Hi Sky 

I came with the same question but mine is a marked quiz that is not showing up in the to do list - i can't seem to find any reason why - it has a due date but doesn't show up - any ideas why?

Three things come to mind to check.

When you say "marked quiz" you have verified this in the Quiz settings?

Who is it assigned to and whose To Do list are you looking at? If you are using differentiated assignments where you assign it to individual students, it would not show up on the Test Student view (the Test Student belongs to each section, so assigning to sections wouldn't affect this, but individual students or groups would).

Are you using grading periods and if so, is the due date in the current grading period?

Thanks James - student view had got stuck - reset and could see the quiz in the to do list

I tried a few things in my sandbox and found a possible workaround.  You can create your practice quiz (I didn't place my quiz in the module, just created it on its own).  Then create an assignment and in the instructions box you can make a link to your practice quiz.  I did "no submission" for the submission type for the assignment, but you could just text box if they want to give you some feedback.  The only downfall is that you need to manually award the points after checking who submitted the practice quiz, but it worked out for me.

I like this idea.  I have been trying to come up with a way to have students get accuracy information, but record effort grades in the gradebook.  I think this may work.  Have you had a chance to try it out since you posted this?  Any hiccups?

I assume that even though the practice quiz is linked, students and teachers can still access the practice quiz to give and observe individual question feedback????
