  1. Section averages

    I have a large class with many (18) sections. I want to see the average final grade for each section. When I filter by section, it still shows the average for the entire class rather than the average for the section. I would like to be able to see the average for each section when I filter by section.

  3. Provide a way to print out (to a printer or as a pdf) graded assignments showing comments.

    I need to provide sample student papers WITH MY COMMENTARY in my hiring portfolio. Please give me a way to print papers from the Grader with my inserted comments.

  4. 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.

  5. More options with attendance in grades

    Please add a tardy option with attendance.

    Also, please add a "note" option with daily attendance. For example, in dance and other participatory classes, students may be present, but 'sitting out' due to an injury. I would like to be able to track that in Learning Suite for both instructor and student benefit.

  7. Batch download *by section*

    In order to expedite grading for large classes with multiple sections, we would love to see an improved "Batch Download" feature that allows users to download assignments from a specific section or multiple specific sections.
    Currently, all assignments across every section is downloaded by this feature.

  8. Ability to email by classes, semesters/terms, groups within classes

    More ability to choose who we email. I need to email 3 of my four classes the same thing but can only chose to email all students together or by the individual class. Please let us chose what classes to email.

    Furthermore, I'd like to email students in upcoming semesters/terms, I'd like that option.

    Lastly I'd like to create groups within a single section of a class. the 32 students are divided into groups of 4. I would like to be able to group these students to email them in one go rather than selecting the 4 each time I…

  9. Remove the "compare yourself to other students in class" function.

    I recently learned, to my horror, that LS has a default setting to let students see their score in comparison to other students (as opposed to tracking their own performance). That's bad enough (a comparison culture is unhealthy), but then LS also tells them things like "you're the best in class" or "you're the worst in class - better luck next time." I cannot say how badly this has gone for students (once they let me know it was happening!). I can turn it off, but I have to remember to do that each semester. Please, either remove it, or…

  11. 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.

  12. Make it easier to find files you've uploaded in previous classes

    In the current configuration, instructors have two options for uploading files into folders under the content tab. One option is to upload the file from the instructors PC, the other is to MANUALLY scroll through a list of files that have already been uploaded at some prior time. The problem with the latter option is that in many cases, instructors have hundreds of files they've uploaded on different occasions. I the instructors tries to upload a one of the files from his/her PC, there is an error message that says you must scroll through the enormous list of files you've…

  13. Please allow me to "turn off" the feature that shows students what grade they are getting in the class.

    Please allow me to "turn off" the feature that shows students what grade they are getting in the class. Two reasons. 1. Learning Suite does not calculate my course grades the way I want it to (my system is pretty complex), so the reported grade is always wrong. But I like to use L.S. so that students can see that I've correctly entered their scores. 2. There are too many students who panic because L.S. will tell them they are failing when only a few assignments have been entered (half of their grade comes in the final, so it's not…

  14. Ability to download a version of the student's uploaded assignment that includes the notes I've added.

    For instructors who need to submit (for faculty review or employment renewal) samples of student work WITH instructor's comments, I'd like the ability to download and save copies of my students' papers (that have been uploaded through Learning Suite) that INCLUDE my added notes (feedback). The feedback/notes disappear when I "download," so that all I see is the student's text.

  15. 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.

  16. Place some visual indicator on grade columns that are hidden from student view

    Current Situation: In the Gradebook, I can go to a grade column-->click the down arrow-->click on Edit Assignment-->select Scheduling (tab at top)-->and then fill in the Hide an Assignment box for a date in the future. Once that date is populated, I have no way of knowing that the grade column is hidden for my students, unless I open up the Edit Assignment dialogue box again. This is especially problematic for courses that get copied from one semester to another; those "hide until dates" appear to copy to the next semester (and increment the year to the next year so…

    The built-in document viewer for grading assignments seems to handle the .pdf extension, but when it's saved as ".PDF", it doesn't seem to display properly.

  18. When the schedule is viewed on a phone in student view, the content can get cut off if it's long and the phone is in portrait position.

    Can you make it so that this doesn't happen?

  19. Mobile Ready for Gradebook

    Learning Suite needs to be mobile ready, ALL OF IT! Having the option to use iPad when entering grades into the gradebook would be helpful. NOT having the option to use learning suite on any device should not be an issue in 2017. Accessing grades, content, syllabus and list of students via any device is needed.

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