  1. Be able to not count a vote in the grade without deleting it or marking all as correct.

    I almost always have students vote twice (first individually and second time after peer discussion). When they do really poorly on the first vote, I like to not count it toward their grade. However, to do that I have to delete that entire vote's data. I would rather be able to keep that data so over time I can see the data for questions that students are struggling with on the first vote. So it would be great if I could make that first vote not count toward their grade but still leave the data in there. I know I…

  2. Have the ability to download results for mutliple sessions at once into the same spreadsheet.

    You can only download the specific voting results for one session at a time, but I would like to be able to select multiple sessions and have it download the specific voting results for each student into the same spreadsheet.

  3. Restore the ability to leave the date blank.

    The software has been changed to require the entry of a session date before the assignment can be saved. This is very inconvenient. I often create questions in advance using fake assignments to store questions or to create assignments that will actually be used in the future but I do not know exactly when. If the date is left blank, it is sorted to the top so I can use the question in another assignment or assign a date when the assignment is actually use. Please restore the ability to leave the date blank.

  4. Allow for the randomization of values in the numerical questions.

    I should be able to write a formula with random variables, type in ranges for the input variables with specified number of decimal places and students will be presented with new numerical values on each attempt. Each student/group of students will get a different set of numbers. This is already standard in my LMS (Canvas) or on Mastering Physics.

  5. When results are downloaded, show for whole class (even those who didn't take the test this time)

    I would like the results of each week's quiz to be easy to import into a central spreadsheet, but currently, if a student didn't take the test, they they are simply missing and i have to shift all the students down one row manually.
    I'd like to be able to define a "class" of students and invite them all to take a quiz. If a student doesn't take it, they'd then still appear in the results download saying "did not take test".

  6. View student groups when using Automatic Grouping

    Allow instructors to see which students have been grouped together when using automatic grouping. I'd like to see which students were grouped together for certain questions to analyze data and attempt to correct misconceptions and flawed logic.

  7. Stop Warning Me About Popups

    Don't grey out the whole screen with a warning that I'm blocking pop-ups until I acknowledge it. Then don't do it again every single time. I get it, my browser blocks pop-ups. I set it that way years ago because the internet is unusable otherwise and things worked fine without them last semester. Put a unobtrusive note in the corner if you need to. The warning itself is actually interfering with my ability to use it.

  10. Have an option to hide immediate feedback from students

    We would like an option the in Team-based assessment to hide immediate feedback from students , especially in the individual round. Right now students get feedback such as "your answer was correct" or something like that. We would like to hide that till after the instructor presses the final stop delivery button.

  11. Do not allow learning catalytics to use the same questions that are found in the test bank

    I began using Learning Catalytics to improve student engagement in class. After 2 years of doing so, I just discovered that the students can see all of the questions in a module whether or not I had delivered the questions in class. When I changed it so that the students could not see the module any longer so that I could continue using the module and questions for subsequent classes, the students were very interested in getting the module open to "study" for the exam. This interest caused me to compare the learning catalytics questions with the test bank questions…

  12. Centrally setup student accounts with a spreadsheet of email addresses and names (and ideally student IDs)

    This would save the students time and allow us to get started faster. As an instructor, I upload a spreadsheet of email addresses and associate them with the license code i have paid for. This then causes the students on the list to receive an email containing an invite link.

    It would also mean that each of the student's accounts is set up in the same way, which makes the results spreadsheet easier to manage.

  13. "Delete course" option is not working as it is explained in the User Guide

    I understand you can't delete a course that is associated with another course that was created in the last two years.
    I have courses since 2015 and still can't be deleted , and they are not associated to any course that I have created in the past two years.I have attached a screenshot so you can see what does my screen look like ,including my attempt to choose "delete" option which does not exist.
    Please HELP HELP HELP !!! (if anyone is looking at this at all)

  16. Results view

    The results display automatically displays next to the question, making some of the results hard to read. It would be great to have the option of only showing the results, without the original question, so that the results are the only part on the screen. Alternatively the question could be minimized once the results are displayed so that the results have more space on the student screen.

  18. Is there a way to schedule a future date and time for a session to start? Or does a session always have to be started manually?

    Is there a way to schedule a future date and time for a session to automatically start once at the specified time? Or does a session always have to be started manually?

  20. Update your search engine, searching for common terms usually results in "no items found".

    Link questions to actual chapters in your texts so that an instructor can easily make use of them. Right now it is a mess, I only use my own questions as I can never find any on the site.
