Is it possible to set up a quiz where students complete 2 of 3 essays? If so, how?
Hello STEPHANIE A FRYBERG...
Yes...you should be able to do this. Here are a few Guides that should help you:
How do I create an Essay quiz question?
How do I create a quiz with a question group to randomize quiz questions?
Question groups would allow you to set up your quiz such that it would pick two of the three essay questions to complete. Hope this helps, Stephanie!
First, thank you for your response. The problem I'm having with the grouping is that canvas picks two essays for the students. I want the students to be able to pick 2 of the three essays.
Can you help?
Hi STEPHANIE A FRYBERG...
Thanks for the additional clarification on what you're trying to do in Canvas. Unfortunately, nothing like this really exists in Canvas at the moment. There have been a few Feature Ideas posted this past year that I'll direct your attention to (some of them have "work-around" solutions):
Allow students to pick quiz questions (archived due to a lack of needed votes)
Option to have students choose to respond to some, but not all, questions (archived due to a lack of needed votes)
Choosing questions in a quiz (currently open for voting until the beginning of July)
I'll also direct your attention to The specified item was not found. because quizzes are getting a pretty major overhaul. There's lots of discussion in this particular thread, so you might want to take a look through it when you have time. Lots of great ideas here...and I'm sure that what you're asking for has been suggested in there, too.
Hope this helps!
You can do this, STEPHANIE A FRYBERG; no problem.
For the first question in your quiz, select "Text (no question)."
This will allow you to present all three prompts to students. Next, insert two essay questions that refer the students to the prompts. Something like this, perhaps:
Will that work for you?
Since we haven't had any further discussion on your question, I am going to go ahead and mark this question as "Assumed Answered" because I've provided some links to Feature Ideas for you, and Dallas E Hulsey has also give you a great work-around. Marking this thread as "Assumed Answered" won't prevent you or others from posting additional replies and/or questions related to your initial posting, however. I hope this is okay with you, Stephanie.
