New Quizzes: Download Quiz Statistics

(63)

quizzes.next‌

Currently, there is no way to download or even print the entire Item analysis report from the new quiz feature in Canvas. This is a really useful feature that the original quizzes held. Please add this feature to the new Quizzes feature.

 @jlbryan ‌, it is currently possible to view, but not download, the Item Analysis in Quizzes.Next, as described in How do I view reports for an assessment in Quizzes.Next? The ability to download the Student Analysis CSV is one of the items that will be developed to reach parity, as listed in the https://community.canvaslms.com/docs/DOC-12115-quizzes-lti-feature-comparison

We really need this as well at University of British Columbia. Instructors want the ability to see an excel list of all answered questions entered for the quiz. It's yet another reason why we can't fully endorse QuizzesNext until it reaches feature parity with the original tool. And the fact that QuizzesNext doesn't have an API is unfortunate since that could at least afford the ability to extract results from the back end.

I would take even a PDF version if I could just get something out of Canvas related to data.

As well as the item analysis, it would be very helpful to download the student analysis as was possible in the old version.  Also it would be extremely useful if the student analysis included the time the quiz was started and the time it took for them to complete it.  The completion time is very important for spotting academic misconduct (some students complete quizzes suspiciously quickly).  The start time is very handy for sorting students by the order they did the quiz in (which is helpful if you had to edit the quiz because of a typo and want to manually fix up the marks for anyone who did the quiz before an edit).  I deal with classes of 1000 students and the above features would make quizzes.next much more usable for me.

Another feature from legacy quizzes missing in Quizzes.nxt. I am surprised that so much has to be rebuilt in to Quizzes.nxt that once existed. We need this feature as well as it is extremely useful. I know we are promised that everything that currently exists in legacy quizzes will be added to quizzes.nxt but the long wait of getting quizzes.next up to par is frustrating. I am glad this is on the road map though.

Use case: we use surveys to gather photo consent and dietary preferences. We export these for import into our Student Information System.

I would really like to see the time it took to complete listed in the downloadable file.

This is a major hindrance to using this product.  Had I known before hand, I would not have used it.  I agree with someone else's comment, even a PDF of the data would be great. Getting access to the full range of data is crucial, especially in the course that I teach that is about testing!

I also would like to see the time to complete (and/or the start time, to complement the submission time) added to the Student Analysis CSV file. As others have said, this information is helpful in identifying academic misconduct, etc. The Speed Grader provides the time to complete for each attempt, but it is time-consuming to flip through the Speed Grader and manually add this information to the downloaded CSV file. Please add it to the CSV..

Yes.  This is definitely needed.  With several hundred students in class I need to be able to sort the data automatically.

It is absolutely abominable that the statistics cannot be downloaded. I concur with the others who have requested the start and submission time (and completion time). These are needed for academic misconduct and also for identifying students who click through surveys without reading them. The data in the Moderate tab also needs to be downloadable. I should be able to export the log data for students instead of being required to use the web interface.

I just wonder what the code in Canvas looks like ... I'm thinking it's a hot mess, because after 1.5 years -- the first posting in this thread is from January 2019 -- they can't even offer basic statistics in a quiz. Or maybe Wally from the Dilbert strip is in charge ... that would also explain a lot

I wonder about this also.   When I upload a grade spreadsheet, the grades slowly populate one by one -- it could take 10 minutes for all the grades to completely update.   I am not sure if this is the Penn State implementation or something common to all of Canvas but I have never seen any software act this way.  I always get the impression that there is a room filled with Terry Pratchett's imps entering the data one item at a time manually.

I'm full of regret having spent hours developing assessments in new quizzes only to find there's no results export option. What a waste of time...  Back to classic until this gets implemented.

If I had known this feature was not available, I would not have used this tool.  I need to download the statistics so that I can quickly look through responses without clicking multiple buttons for each student. Because this feature is not available, I had to print out a blank roster and fill in the answers by hand.  I will never use this quiz again until this is fixed.

This question is highly useful. We have faculty using advanced software for grading student answers and assigning partial credit that is not available in Canvas itself. It will make Canvas inoperable for several people in my dept. if we don't have the ability to download student responses in a spreadsheet.

I'd like to add my voice for to the call for quiz results downloads. 

I assumed this function was core to any evaluation when setting up my course quizzes.

Very disappointed.

I too have the need to download the results from a quiz.  And at this time ov Covid19 and not being able to do a physical 'paper' test with the students.

Really need a way of downloading the students reponses in a quiz, I dont want to be forced into doing screenshots of a cohort worth of students answers.

Come on Instructure make with an answer....

It would be very helpful to see all the students and their results within Excel to be able to manipulate the data and drive instruction.

Just adding my voice - we really need this download data feature in New Quizzes, not just classic! 

As far as I can tell, it is really difficult to skim free response data from new quizzes that are used as surveys too.  Because I can't download the data, I have to click and scroll through individual responses to see what each person wrote.  This is so inefficient.
