Can students see prior assessment submissions?
Annelise, Ken Black's helpful response applies to students' ability to see previous quiz attempts in current and previous semesters. I was wondering if, by "assessments," you might have been referring to "assignment submissions" as well. If that's the case, then no, students can only see their latest submission to an assignment. Teachers can see all of a students' submissions to an assignment through the dropdown in the SpeedGrader.
Hello Annelise - You didn't specify if you mean for a class that one is currently taking or from a prior class. If one from the current term, it depends on the Quiz settings. While there are several documentation pages on quiz settings within the help system, I highly recommend starting with Kona Jones' outstanding one on security levels here: Quiz Settings to Maximize Security which (I am guessing) has to be among the most oft-referenced documents in Canvas history because of its thoroughness!
If you mean, however, from a PREVIOUS semester, that is actually an administrative setting at one's own institution. We, for example, do NOT allow students to few assessments from previous semesters. Actually, the way the setting is worded is: Restrict students from viewing quiz questions after course end date . That will, essentially, also take away their ability to view their own submissions. That is covered--along with other account-level settings--here: How do I set details for an account?
I hope this helps a bit.
Hi Ken, thank you for this. Apologies for my poor wording. I was wondering about previous assignment submissions, which I've just seen answered below. Thank you again for responding. Annelise
Thank you for this. This is what I was after, apologies poor wording.
Many thanks. Annelise
