  1. Change comma-separated values in fill-in-the-blank to semi-colon delimited

    We are concerned with comma-separated values in the fill-in-the-blank answers. We are wondering if it would be possible to change that to semi-colon delimited instead so their students can put in their high-dollar amounts in their fill-in-the-blank questions.-Accounting

          When scoring exams have a "Save All" button that would allow us to alternately submit all scores on the exam instead of having to save each individual score separately.

            • Be able to go through and grade all responses to a question at the same time

              When grading, be able to grade all responses to a question at the same time, rather than have to click through to each student's quiz. This is better for consistency in short answer responses, and more time efficient.

              • Allow instructors to take an exam and see the scored answers

                If I want to take advantage of some advanced scoring options (such as numeric ranges), I would like to ensure that the scoring works properly BEFORE I give the exam to the students.

                Unfortunately, when I take the exam, I can't see my answers. So I have to have a TA take the exam, which then lets me see their answers. THis means the TA and I both have to spend time working on the exam, which is a waste of resources.

                What is the design reason for not allowing the instructor to see his or her scores on the…

                • 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.

                  • 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.

                    • Take an exam for practice

                      There should be capabilities to have practice exams. They should be optionally gradable, have no cut-off dates, and be available from the start of the course.

                      • 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.

                        • 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.

                          • Make all answers on a multiple-response question have equal value

                            A multiple-response question can be thought of as a set of yes/no questions. To get full credit, all of the yes/no questions should be answered correctly. Any incorrect answer should be wrong.

                            Under the current system (which is an improvement from before, thanks!) I can require all answers to be correct to get any points on the question. THis works, but there is no partial credit.

                            Another alternative is to give some answers positive points and some answers negative points, but that's not the way I'd like it to be. If I have five alternatives, each worth 5 points, the…

                            • Allow individual students multiple attempts on an exam

                              To my knowledge, in order to enable a student to attempt an exam after a previous submission, we have to allow the whole class to attempt the exam again (Exam options > Submissions > "Allow students to take this exam more than once")

                              In the event of a student experiencing some special circumstance that I deem worthy of deserving an additional attempt, I would like to be able to enable the affected student, not the entire class, to attempt the exam once more (or some other limited number of times).

                              A hypothetical example of what I'm asking for:
                              My student…

                              • 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.

                                • 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.

                                      • Make Open and Due Dates Relative

                                        Make the open date for assignments relative to the due date, so that if you change the due date, the open date will automatically update the same relative time amount.

                                        • 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.
