New Quizzes: Dashboard To Do

This idea has been developed and deployed to Canvas

As with the original quizzes on canvas, when a student submits a New Quizzes (Quizzes.Next) assessment and there are items that need to be reviewed it should show up on our teacher dashboard in our To Do list so we know to submissions have been made so we can more easily access them in speedgrader to grade.

This is a critical feature for teachers and the lack of support is disheartening. We were told from the very beginning there would be feature parody with Classic quizzes, but there have been multiple instances where that promise has not been met.

Bonkers! Good stoush.

Also bring back html applications in new quizzes asap so we can use mouse overs!

I strongly agree with this idea. Let's all get behind this and affect change for the better! "To do" is a must in new canvas quizzes! 

The very idea of abandoning a central tenet of classic quizzes is disheartening as it  has  helped me countless times to give feedback to students in a timely manner!

I LOVE CANVAS, but this is the one drawback of the new quizzes. Please make this a new feature! 🤔😫🔎frustrated-strangle.gif

No fair- students get a to do list but not teachers/instructors. This classic quiz feature was da bomb! 

🎶I like your old stuff better than your new stuff🎶

"I see your band now and it's not too bad
You're nothing like you used to be
Please write some songs that really do not s#@k
Please become what you were before
I like your old stuff better than your new stuff (x4)
I try hard not to bring up the past
I'm sorry I had to again
You don't know me I feel you are my friend
I'm trying not to be pretend"

Canvas I have to confess. I used you. 🤔

You were there when I needed a friend and you were willing.

 Whose fault is that?

I didn't know you were going to turn into a crazy one sided relationship.

Me chasing you hoping you will live up to my expectations.

Alas, I feel let down. 

I am now some crazed stalker having check on six different courses - is there work completed yet?

Every five minutes.

 Come on.

Give me a break.

Dont be so hard to get....

Where is my to do list?

Please come back!!!!

New quizzes do not show as needing grading in the Gradebook or To-Do list as well as other notifications. This is hampering the ability of students to have work re-evaluated, and assessed for gained knowledge. As an instructor, it is challenging to review all the quizzes to find those that need regrading.
