  1. survey

    Would be nice to have a survey option in the exams. If selected, there would be no "correct" answers required and individual student responses would not be visible. (only show the statistics on the answers). The instructor only sees who has completed the survey. Ideally, you could give some credit for completion alone.

    It would need to be labeled as a survey rather than an exam so that students would recognize the difference.

  2. Ability for students to upload files in exams

    Some exams would be enhanced by the ability of students to attach files of graphs they have created or other similar things.

  3. Create a Discussion/QA spot for each assignment/Exam

    There are always a large number of questions for large assignments, projects, and exams. It would be great if instead of needing to go back and forth over email, students could post and group questions associated with a given test or assignment that professors could then answer from one spot. That QA spot would become the authority on updated information for assignments and tests and make it so that faculty would (in theory) only have to answer questions once--something that I think that would add great value for faculty and students alike.

  4. Equation editing

    I need equation editing, but I typically use MathType (an enhanced version of equation editor) instead of LaTex or some other markup language. Some ability to interface with that would be nice. I'm not sure yet on how well it cuts and pastes in from Word.

  5. Late option for quizzes

    Include the option of allowing students to complete a quiz late. Even better, include the option of deducting points or a percentage for each day late.

  6. Make it easier for me to see the feedback I've programmed into exams

    In "Exams," under "Questions," it would be great if the "Expanded" view showed the feedback I'm giving students with each answer. I want to review & edit what I've put in there, and I would like to see it in all one place. Currently, for me to see the feedback that I've entered, I need to "edit" each question individually. Showing all the feedback on the "extended view" would be very helpful.

  7. Allow students to modify fonts in open responses on exams

    When writing an exam question I can use different fonts and modify those fonts (bold, italics, underline, etc) but students cannot do the same in their responses. It would be helpful to me if they could use those fonts in their responses.

  8. Non-automatic questions in exams (homework)

    In many cases, especially when exams are being used as worksheets, there are questions that don't have a predetermined right answer, even multiple choice or true/false. For example, 1. Pick an example... 2. Which category is this example? A B C D. It would be nice if the exam builder did not force us to pick a correct answer and assign points to it.

  9. Allow students to retake only the questions they missed

    This used to be a feature, but apparently has been removed. Please add it back.

  10. Show confirmation dialog before exam submission

    When you reach the last question on an exam, the "Finish and Submit" button looks a lot like the "Continue" button, and is in the same location. If you're going quickly, it's easy to click "Finish and Submit" thinking you are just going to the next question. This is a problem if you wanted to go back and review previous questions. A confirmation dialog would allow you to go back if you clicked "Finish and Submit" by mistake.

  11. Limit how frequently students can retake an exam/quiz

    I want to require students to get 100% on a quiz, but want them to have to wait at least 24 hours between attempts (drawing from a question pool, so the quiz is not the same every time). That way, they have to actually study for it, instead of using the exam as form of cramming.

  12. Entering exact times for tests causes confusion.

    When I create an exam, I have to post a time for it (especially since the times will appear in "Schedule"). This requires that I find out when the Testing Center administers the exams. This presents problems: does the test end when the Testing Center closes, or when they quit handing out exams? Do I have to keep track of the Testing Center hours, in case they change sometime during the term?

  13. Quantitative Exam Questions

    Allow questions with numerical answers which are checked for being within a certain tolerance of the correct answer (relative or absolute). The questions show allow scientific notation to handle large and small numbers such as 1.2e23 of 1.9e-7 (or an equivalent format). Include the option to have each student have different numerical parameters in their question so that students get randomized numerical questions.

  14. Give instructors the ability to open an exam for someone to take a second time, either in an exception, or otherwise.

    Curently there is no way for instructors to let a student take an exam again if there is a reason to do so. LS could program an exception option, or some other way of re-opening the exam for a student so they can take it again.

  15. Default box size for open response questions

    Currently the default open response box size is 1 which is probably the size least likely to be used by anyone. I think a default of 10 would be more appropriate or even better give users the option of selecting their own default size for all their open ended questions.

  16. expand the answer boxes for fill in the blank questions

    In LS exams, allow the fill in the blank answer boxes to be larger (like for open response)

  17. Exams

    When you are creating an exam and you are given the option to "scale the exam score to ___ points", I think that when you enter points in the blank, that should automatically select that option.

    As it is, even if you enter points in the blank, unless you manually select that option, the default option ("autocalculate from question values") remains selected.

  18. Add Search feature to Question Bank

    Please add a keyword search function to the main page of the Question Bank that will search in all folders and subfolders within the Question Bank, and display all of the results showing on a single page (even if the results are in different folders). Something akin to doing a keyword search in Windows using File Explorer.

  19. Embed a librarian feature

    The library is looking for a rather unique option. We partner with the writing program and would like to be able to create a customizable tab with several simple homework assignments that the students could complete through learning suite. We need these assignments to be secure so the teacher could grade them, but also we would like to collect the data from such assignments for our own library instruction program assessment. That means there would be a few parties that would need to be able to access the information: the writing 150 teacher, the library instructor assigned to that section,…
