    • make it possible to use images as answers for multiple choice questions

      I would like to post a multiple choice question where the answers are different graphs and students need to choose the correct graph based on the prompt. I do not seem to be able to use images as answers to multiple choice questions.

      • Allow selection of multiple student responses

        When I review and grade a session with short-answer or long-answer questions, I have to mark one question correct, wait for the system to update, then mark the next one correct, and so forth. I would love to be able to select all the correct (or incorrect) questions displayed, and mark them all correct (or incorrect) with a single click.

        • Add a message to students regarding Class Session ID

          I got many emails when students were first registering for LC, asking me what the Class Session ID was. I responded to each person letting them know that they receive this ID during class; maybe add a small parenthetical note to that effect for the students, so there isn't confusion when first registering?

          • Allow students to submit anonymous responses to questions.

            I wish to poll my class, but they should be able to answer anonymously. Otherwise, I can't ask questions that might be considered personal.

            • Please allow multiple rooms for one course!

              I cannot see how to maintain the link to the home course gradebook in MP when I have two different classrooms for the same course - am I missing something?

              • Adding a WYSIWYG editor (text box) for a future version.

                Adding a WYSIWYG editor (text box) for a future version.

                As many of our users do not handle well/do not know how to enter questions directly into LC using HTML or Markdown for formatting (and LaTeX for math formatting) but a WYSIWYG would help them to have a better user experience.

                • I would like to print off my modules with Matching questions

                  Matching questions do not show the choices when you try to print from a PDF, just the question text.

                  • Enabling the seat map function to be used on a tablet, where there is no "hover"

                    Using a tablet, it is not possible to hover over a seat on the map and see the student's name (or response, if not multiple choice). Thus the instructor cannot roam around the room and call students by name.

                    • Allow multiple correct answers to numerical questions

                      For example, if 12.56% is the correct answer, allow 12.56, .1256, or 12.56% (or ranges around all of these, ideally). Obviously, the correct format for the answer can be specified in the question, but it seems in some cases preferable to keep the questions short and leave the format open.

                      • Allow instructors to input multiple answers when creating module questions

                        Similar to an existing idea posted here- but more broad-allow instructor to input multiple correct answers/answer derivations when creating modules using ANY of the question types available, just like you can in Mastering. For ex. if a student answers "DOG" instead of "dog" (input as the correct answer by the instructor), the student answer would be counted as correct and the student wouldn't be penalized for using capital letters rather than lowercase. The current absence of this feature limits the use of many question types in LC if one wants to grade based on correctness rather than just for participation!

                        • A countdown timer for each question that will appear on student phones.

                          Instructors could set an optional 10 to 20 second timer on questions to encourage a prompt response.

                          • Scale Output (Projector and PDF) to fit.

                            The usability of LC is greatly diminished when the question *and answers* do not fit on a single projector screen, or on a single PDF page.

                            Although the text scales adaptively to some extent, this seems to be easily broken by images and math. Resizing the browser and zooming can help somewhat, but there is no such option when exporting a PDF (see attached).

                            Especially with the PDF, there is lot's of space where the responses will go.

                            Also, my intended use of the PDF is for on-screen access, not printing, so I would be find if the PDF pages…

                                • Allow instructors to change seat orientation (not just location)

                                  Our rooms are often setup seminar style, in-the-round, or other orientations in which not all seats face the same direction, and the current room setup does not allow for this. I can place the seats in a circle, but LC still reads this as them all facing the same way and says things like ‘Talk to John behind you’ when John is really on the person’s right. If there was a way to turn/orient seats as well as place them, I think that would solve this issue and allow for better grouping.

                                      The maximum questions I can view is 25. Although there is an arrow indicating more questions are available. Clicking the arrow to move on does nothing.

                                        Every time I choose a question, the search returns to start. If I'm creating a module, it is likely I want to search from the same topic. I shouldn't have to choose that topic again unless I want to change it.

                                        • Resizing images

                                          It would be nice if LC allows to you to use html to resize images (e.g. <img src="v_vs_t.jpg" width="50%" height="50%" class="display">

                                          I am writing questions with two images, and the default sizes seems depend on the width of the image, so the relative size of one picture to the other can look odd, where one picture is very big and the other tiny.
