Is it correct that a learner is required to complete the entire quiz again if they get one answer incorrect (for a test requiring 100%)
Natalie, if the quiz is set up to allow for multiple attempts and that to move forward in the course they have to get 100%, then yes, the student would need to answer every question correct, regardless of previous submissions.
Thanks Kona. I was hoping to create auto-marked quizzes that require 100% pass; that require learners only to re-submit answers for questions first marked incorrect. It seems they have to complete the entire quiz again which could lead to further errors or frustrations. How do you address this issue?
I teach math so in my mind repetition and practice is a good thing. If you really know what you’re doing then you’ll be able to answer all the questions correctly each time you take the quiz. Yet, while I give 3-5 attempts for all of my quizzes, I also don’t require they get a 100% to move on in the course.
Canvas has a new quizzing engine coming out and maybe this would be a good feature to request for it - User Group: New Quizzes. Check out the user group and maybe consider requesting this!
I generally set my pass requirement somewhere between 80-90% when I'm using Mastery Paths unless it's something I really, truly have to have them be perfect at. Otherwise, you run into frustrated kids. Students who struggle with reading and English language learners are really held back by requiring perfection, so I'm careful to design my quizzes so that I can be confident that kids know what I need them to know even if they get 1 or 2 wrong.
I also tend to use non-auto-graded assessments on Canvas, paper, or some other platform for the really important stuff. I generally stick to auto-graded quizzes for quick checkpoints unless my school makes me do something else in order to be standardized.
I have been quite frustrated by this too, and now I warn students ahead of time so they can record their answers to use in future submissions. Some even print out the quiz and work it on paper first then enter the answers. I think the most frustrating one is the file upload questions, and I suggest only uploading files after they have all the other ones answered to their satisfaction.
Hi Natalie Hamilton,
Anytime a student retakes a quiz, they must retake the entire quiz, rather than only what they got wrong. It would be nice for the quiz to automatically only have them redo what they got wrong. Maybe that's a feature that can be included in the future.
There are two things I have always done:
Any retakes must be taken after school (I never had quizzes set to prevent students from moving forward in the course)
Students will note which questions they get wrong and I note what their initial score was. Then I tell the students to only answer what they got wrong and then I have added points for each question they get correct and manually adjust their scores. While this sounds time consuming and confusing, it's actually not since the kids have to do it before or after school when I have more free time.
Another thing I have done is had the students record their responses (I set it so they can see their responses after the quiz, but does not show the correct answer if they get it wrong) and indicate which ones were wrong. Then I would allow them to retake during class and the new score is their final score.
I only have students retake quizzes once if they choose. Rarely do I allow students more than once reattempt.
If the quiz has Mastery Paths attached to it, I do not allow reattempts until they have finished their assignment given as a result of their score. However, I always inform students when Mastery Paths is attached to their quiz so they try extra harder, especially if they feel they are ready for more advanced work. I taught high school English, so it was easier for me to explain Mastery Paths to the students.
