  3. Ability to right click on a misspelled word and have the correct spelling option(s) appear in the box on the right.

    When creating or editing exam questions I right click on a misspelled word the only option that comes up is to "Paste". I would like the ability to right click on a misspelled word and have the correct spelling option(s) appear in the box on the right.

  4. zeros

    When a student doesn't turn in an assignment, the TA naturally leaves it blank rather than entering a zero (he/she just enters the scores for the assignments that were submitted). I know I can set the final grades to automatically zero unscored items, but I also want to drop the two lowest homework scores. Currently, Learning Suite recognizes a zero as one of the two lowest scores, but doesn't consider dropping empty scores, and therefore might drop an assignment where a student scored 4/10 over another which the student never submitted (and will eventually be counted as 0/10). Currently, of…

  5. Table Feature -

    The ability to insert a small (basic) table onto content pages and syllabus pages would be extremely helpful for organizing information in a more efficient and effective manner. Lists are great (thank you) but some information really needs tabular form..

  6. Let's call the Exams page Quizzes. Either let us rename the tab to what we want, or call the page Quizzes.

    I would love the main tab for Exams to be called Quizzes, not Exams. In reality, exams are typically given at the testing center and quizzes are done online through learning suite in the 'exams' section. Maybe some instructors use the quiz mechanism to give an exam, but I don't know any that do - and most of us just use it for quizzes. Is there any possibility you would consider changing the default name of the tab/page to be Quizzes? Alternatively, could be given control of the tab name to rename it Quizzes ourselves (in which case the default…

  7. Allow students to access to view all quizzes (exams) after the closing date.

    Currently students can only go back and view the exams they took. If they missed an exam they can't see it after the close date.

  9. Wrap text around jpg or mov

    It would be great to have a button with which to wrap text (similar to wordpress).

  10. Add special character palette for foreign language courses

    Some answers on exams and other assignments require special characters, especially in foreign language courses. It would be quicker and easier for some students to have a selection of special characters available with the click of a button, e.g. those with a non-Mac laptop who don't have a number pad.

  11. Rubrics: show the total points while creating the rubric

    I create separate rubrics for each assignment, so I have quite a few rubrics.

    It would be nice to have a "total" (or I supposed "total max") points at the bottom of the rubric creation modal. Yes, I can do math, but it's quicker and easier if a running total is displayed, and that should be an easy fix.

    A running total would make it easier to divvy up points so that I make sure an assignment hits a certain number of points.

  12. Allow the instructor/TA to print papers directly from the BYU grades tab

    Currently, if I want to print the paper of a student, I need to first download the file and then open it in Windows Word or some other program, and THEN print it. It would be nice if there was a way to print it straight from the Learning Suite page

  14. Y-Messages from previous semesters shouldn't continue as notifications

    The only way to get rid of the message notification is to click on the message and read it. There are classes where students will babble about nothing important and the professor will never use this method for important things. If you want to get rid of them, you have to go through all previous semesters and click to view each individual message.

  16. assignment grading focus

    When on the online assignment grading screen, on screen load please focus the cursor on the "score" box. It is an inconvenience to have to click on that box for every student.
    Thanks!

  17. Ability to adjust vertical spacing in text.

    Ability to adjust vertical spacing in text. For example, tables that are copied into the syllabus have a double spaced vertical height per row making them twice as tall as they need to be.

  19. Allow deletion of multiple days on the schedule. Such as delete all Mondays etc.

    My schedule shows all days of the week, yet we only meet once a week. Please make an easy way to set-up or delete many days of the week.

  20. 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.
