  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. 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…

  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. 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…

  9. 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.

  10. 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…

  11. 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.

  12. Allow for progressively deducting percentages for late assignments

    I'm using the Learning Modules feature to link to assignments in Moodle. The feature works great in exporting students' grades on the assignments back to BYU Grades, but we really need the option of progressively deducting percentages for each day an assignment is late, like Pearson's My Language Lab and other learning management systems have. Learning Suite apparently only offers two options: either not accepting late assignments at all, or giving them full credit. What I'd like is an option to progressively deduct 5% for each day an assignment is late. Thanks!

  13. Managing multiple sections

    It would be helpful if instructors could group all available sections together when posting the content, but could then allow TAs the option of customizing their own sections after that. Otherwise, I'm required to separately post all 14 sections using the copy content function. This would be fine except that the copy content function apparently changes the schedule for each section based on each section's meeting time. So if customization isn't an option, can there be an override of the system's schedule adjustments when copying content? Something like, "Maintain scheduled dates when copying content?" or something?

  14. Disable notifications for specific chain emails

    You should be able to mute notifications on specific email threads. This way, students can silence uninteresting email threads, so that when they get a notification they can have higher confidence that it will be relevant to them.

  15. Need to convert hidden columns to not hidden on "Schedule"

    I need to convert hidden columns to visible columns. Once hidden columns are set up (I guess I did it by accident while importing), there's no way to get them to be visible by students.

  16. Set Open/Due Times to End/Start of Class

    Allow instructors to set start and end times for a class and give them the options to (1) set the class end time as the default open time for all assignments/exams and (2) set the class start time as the default due/close time for all assignments/exams; then on individual assignments/exams, include the options to (3) set it to open at the end of class and (4) set it to be due/close at the start of class.

  17. 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.

  18. allow instructors to customize dashboard

    Right now, the dashboard contains announcements and the schedule. This is not that useful to me. I am posting material in a content page that I feel needs to be on the front page of the course. Sometimes the content that I want on the front page will change at different points in the semester. It would be nice for professors to have more complete control over the front page on learning suite. Students sometimes have a hard time finding information because it is hidden from the front page.

  19. Under "content," when using "insert file," please allow us to replace an existing file

    I do something in my class that I suppose is very common: I post my PowerPoint slides under a "content" page. That process is basically fine, but here is the problem: if I make a change in a file and I need to upload the new version to LearningSuite, "insert file" will not simply replace the old version. Instead, it throws an error: "File (filename) already exists." To work around this, I have to go out of my course, go to "my courses" to the file management area, find the correct file (Be careful not to delete the wrong file!),…

  20. 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.
