On January 1st, Messiah will be enabling New Quizzes for all courses. Classic Quizzes are on their way out.
Want to get an overview and some guidance on using New Quizzes with the Dynamic Duo? Pop into our final New Quizzes workshop of the semester: Wednesday, November 17, at 12:20 pm. For Zoom meetings, use the same meeting link and password as Instructional Design Office Hours. No RSVP necessary.
Not able to make it? You can check out our recording of a past session on the Canvas: Exams/Quizzes blog page.
Not sure if you’re already using New Quizzes? You can tell if your quiz is a “Classic Quiz” or a “New Quiz” by the quiz icon in Canvas. The rocket ship outline is a Classic Quiz and the solid rocket ship is a New Quiz.
Previously, in order to label a submission as “late,” “missing,” or “excused,” you had to go to the gradebook. Now, you can set that submission status right from within Speedgrader! Simply click on the icon of a pencil beside the “Submitted:” heading in the top right.
Sometimes you want different notification preferences for different courses/Canvas sites. Now, you no longer have to go into each course to edit those preferences; you can set all preferences from Account > Notifications.
