The Quizzes.Next total points of a quiz not showing anywhere, anyone ideas how we can know the total points of a quiz without manually adding them one by one?!
Hello Saif Ehsan, reading your question, I assume you are referring to the total point value of all of the questions added to an assessment. I have looked a couple of times in the past and have never found a place where the total point values assigned to quiz questions are totaled.
Quizzes.Next is interesting in that a total point value for the assessment can be indicated independent of the summed value of all questions. In past testing, I noticed the following: If the assignment is set to points, and there is a difference between the point value of the assessment overall and the total value of all questions, when completed the student will be shown what percent they received based on their score on the quiz. The point value in the gradebook appears to be based on calculating their percent on the assessment multiplied by the total point value of the quiz set in the general quiz settings.
So in some ways, the most important consideration in terms of points may be how many questions one would like on the assessment and the value of each question in relation to others. One can determine that the quiz is worth 50 points and have any number of questions on the assessment, and determine if all of the questions are worth the same toward the total percentage or if some questions are weighted more heavily than others.
I'm not sure if this helps, but hopefully it does.
All the best!
I did notice the same in terms of being able to assign total points different to the total points of the individual questions combined. Bu the behavior I notice is that the student marks are not updated at all, so the students take the quizzes.next quiz and say the total assignment points I assigned is 50,regardless of their score I still see 0 out of 50. So I have to go to each individual submission and update the student's mark.
Hi Saif. This definitely sounds strange. I just tested in my sandbox and in a test Q.Next assessment the student score populated the gradebook. I did notice that if the assignment setting box that asks if the assignment should not count toward the final grade is selected the grade is still shown in the gradebook, but if the assessments is in an assignment group that is weighted to zero percent of the final score that the score will not appear in the gradebook. Have you contacted Canvas Support to report this problem? I would be interested in hearing their insight into this issue. It sounds to me as though unless the quiz is in an assignment group worth zero percent of the final grade, that this may be a bug of some type.
If you find out what is happening, please let me know!
