    • Submit grades later option

      In the previous gradebook there was an option to "continue later" while grading...this allowed my TA to begin grading but not submit the score. A flag icon appeared and I could follow behind the TA to review the grade and submit it.

      The new BYU grades does not have this feature and I don't like the idea of hiding grades from the students while we are grading. Can this previous feature PLEASE be added to BYU grades (in the meantime I am grading from Agilix then syncing grades to BYU grades... it defeats some of the nice viewing features of…

        • 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!

          • Digital Dialog - student list

            When viewing Digital Dialog from the student perspective (instructor view), please give options for how to list the discussions, e.g. alphabetical, number of replies, date, original order, etc. It is difficult to see what I'm trying to find when it seems like a haphazard listing.

            • 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.

              • Import/Export/Restore functionality

                There are really two cases here:
                1) where I am doing a back up and restore I need to save the student specific information, like grades and digital dialog stuff.
                2) where I am moving a class, or trying to reset it I do not want the personal data collected.

                • show the percent out of 100 and not percent of grade. Also show percent of each category and total class percent.

                  I don't find it very useful to see the percent of grade column. I want my percent out of 100 on each assignment. The amount of points is sufficient for me to know the weight of the assignment.

                  • 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.

                          • Allow exams to be scored by question

                            I work with my TAs grading online review assignments (exams). We each take one or two questions and grade all responses for that question. However, the only view available is by student, so one must scroll down to the appropriate question each time. I would like to be able to show all responses for question 1 and then grade each student's responses.

                            • Send email notification when a grade is entered

                              I have students who are constantly looking at the grades section for when i have graded an assignment or a test. I think it would be nice to have a messaging setting where students can receive an email when a grade is entered into learning suite. There should also be an option where the professor can disable this if they feel the need to.

                                  I must admit that this appears to be a huge step backwards for us. We should not have to be in the business of HTML programming in order to enter Arabic into the text boxes.

                                  • Select whether grades are released to students after they have been entered

                                    Sometimes you want to wait until grades are entered for the entire class or all the assignments until you release them for students to view. Or maybe you want to return an assignment before releasing grades.

                                    • MathML or Latex in the announcements too, not just on the schedule/exams/etc.

                                      The math (latex, mathml) works pretty well for the most part on the schedule. But I can't use it announcements. So if I try and post an announcement, following up on a math-heavy discussion, to send to the whole class, I'm hamstrung with plain text, no LaTEX allowed. Wouldn't it be pretty easy to extend math into the announcements

                                      • Add support for right-to-left languages

                                        Our course websites were much more effective when we could include (and ask students to produce) material in the target language on the site.

                                        Learning Suite still provides no support for right-to-left languages.

                                        • Simplify group creation in Digital Dialog

                                          Easier options for forming groups in Digital Dialog.
                                          An option for automatic group formation by group size, or number of groups. Group randomly, by alphabet, perhaps even balance genders.
                                          Also, the groups show the size they had when created, but some lost students through adds/drops. It's difficult to know into which groups to add new students, without going through EVERY group counting manually.
