How to make smaller sections within a section?
You can't. If you describe your use case we may be able to come up with an option that works for you.
Hi, Veronica Rinehart.
While not actual subsections, Groups might help you achieve your goal. See https://community.canvaslms.com/docs/DOC-10460#jive_content_id_Groups
Hi - we've also got this query. Our use case relates to delivery of quizzes to groups of students (which you can't do). Our students are already subdivided into sections within the course (i.e. based on location) - and we'd like to assign quizzes to 'sub-groups' of the sections. So we either need the ability to assign a quiz to a group - or the ability to create a 'sub-section' and then allocate to that.
thanks very much
Students can be part of multiple sections. Could you solve your use case by creating a second set of sections and add the students to that? Such as each student is part of Section name: "Section 1", and also Section name "Testing Group A"? Being part of Section 1 would come from your SIS feed like normal, and they would manually be enrolled in "Testing Group A" as they join the class.
Hi - thanks for your reply. I think we were discussing something along these lines but weren't sure how concurrent enrolments to different sections would affect the permissions / access attributed to the first (SIS) section? We didn't want adding the student to a 'Testing' section to (for example) prevent them accessing a resource that was based on their enrolment in 'SIS' section. Does that make sense? If the manual Test sections were sub-sections (child) of the SIS and inherited the permissions of the SIS section - there would not be an issue. We'd just need to make sure that there wasn't any interference.
There shouldn't be. A member of Section A and Section B has all the permissions to access everything available to either section. We've done this with TA's so they can grade (only) their sections with no issues.
