  1. Exams Page, "Status"

    On the "Exams" portion of a class, it'd be extremely helpful if next to close date or actions, there was a status table. Just a simple icon to indicate whether the exam was completed or if you still have to do it. This would be especially helpful since the grades page is so glitchy.

    • Learning Suite Quizzes Should Save Automatically!!! (Or at least have a save button)

      In the days of Gmail, when you can't got three seconds without your email draft being saved, how hard can it be to have Learning Suite save your work as you go?

      Even if that is for some reason too complicated, couldn't we at least add a save button? I've had Learning Suite lose my work 4 times now when I click submit. Do you know how frustrating that is on a short answer quiz? It is possibly the most demoralizing feeling one could have, next to the emotions I felt when waking up this morning and seeing the ground…

      • Make the exam list sortable

        Under the exams tab, currently the exams and quizzes are sorted by when they are posted. It would be great if we had the option to sort them by when they are due.

        • View previous exam answers when multiple submissions are allowed.

          When you complete submit an exam that allows multiple submissions it takes you back to the main exam page (with the "Start Exam Now" button). When you click to start it again you get a blank exam, so you either need to save your answers outside LS (generally a good idea anyway) or you start over. It would be nice to (1) see the answers you submitted after submitting the exam and (2) be able to see and edit your old answers when re-starting an exam.

          • Different colors for submitting exam buttons

            Have different colors for the submit and next question buttons.

            Have confirmation like " Are you sure you want to submit this exam?"

            I clicked the wrong button after the first exam and it submitted! Got a really bad score on that one!

              • The progress bar on quizzes should not be fixed on the window

                When taking a quiz, the bar with "back, next page, submit" is fixed to the window bottom so I always see it. This can make users think they have reached the bottom of the page when they haven't. A simple CSS change should be made to keep this at the bottom of the page.
                It would also be nice if before hitting "next-page" or "submit" it alerted me if I had questions that are unanswered.

                • Something similar to Quizlet built into learning suite

                  It would be cool if there was a built in program to learningsuite that was similar to Quizlet. We could make digital flash cards, practice tests could be generated from the flashcards etc.

                  • Create a discussion/QA tool attached to each test/assignment

                    There are always a million questions for large assignments (Especially finals) and 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. That QA spot would become the authority on updated information for assignments and tests and make it so that professors only have to answer questions once--something that I think they'd love.

                    • View score of multiple choice separate from Written

                      When you finish an exam (with both multiple choice and written responces) it currently shows the score of multiple choice questions with the TOTAL number of points possible. This makes the score appear much lower because the written responses are not yet graded.
                      Allow the final score to appear such as : Multiple choice 37/40. Written responses ?/60 .
                      rather than currently: 37/100

                      • Remove Default "Drop Low Scores"

                        Being a new student, I was freaked out to see my exams all crossed out and my course progress showing all zeros! Please remove the default check mark in the "Drop Low Scores" box and just make it an option.

                          Have the points of the all of the questions match the total point value of the quiz/exam. I had a quiz worth five points, w/ six 1-point qs

                          • Have default markers to label Quizzes/Exams: 'Open Book', 'Open Note', 'Open Internet', 'Open Neighbor', 'Open Anything'

                            Frequently I run into issues with knowing (a) which of my quizzes/exams are open-book and (b) what exactly that means! On rare occasions, faculty will include this in the directions for a given exam (instructions that appear *before* you have opened the exam) but frequently it either is unstated altogether or has to be dug up in the syllabus. It could be worth considering adding default Boolean values for a few common exam 'markers' that could also have an associated description for times when there might be further confusion (the title of this item suggests a few). Easy-to-scan icons could…
