  1. Highlighting Text Questions

    It would be great if the highlighting text type questions would also allow us to include superscripts and subscripts so they can highlight in balanced reactions or equations. In the latter case special characters would be a useful functionality.

          • Change how questions are graded when the same question is asked multiple times.

            If the same question is asked more than once it would be nice to have the ability to have the student's grade based on their highest score for that question. This would also require the total points for a session to depend on the number of questions.Right now students get separate points each time the question is asked and the total possible points depends on the number of questions AND the number of times each question is asked.

            This feature would help instructors who are teaching multiple sections of the same course. I currently teach three sections and use the…

              • Create a new question type: EQUATIONS

                This is similar to another post about expanding the symbols allowed in the "Expression" types of questions.

                Sometimes answers ARE equations, thus the = sign is required.

                Also, interval notation, such as (a,b) or (-infinity, infinity) are needed either in the existing "EXPRESSION" question types or this new "EQUATION" question types. Note: the words "infinity" above would be substituted with the infinity symbol, which would need to be made available.

                • Hints After First Attempt in Team Based Assessment

                  Provide hints after the first attempt during a team based assessment.
                  For example, after the first attempt at a many choice question students could be given hints such as "more then two choices are correct" or "only one choice is correct".

                    Actually do something about the feedback that has been presented and asked here! 245 votes for making an App. Where is it? How many votes does it take for Learning Catalytics to do something? First semester trying out Learning Catalytics and far from impressed.

                    • Fix date sort of sessions for individual student so that Feb comes after Jan

                      Your code appears to be sorting the date based on alphabetical order rather than calendar order.

                            • User friendliness needs to be improved in many ways

                              1) Creating questions should be much simpler. If I want to have students identify things, I should be able to do multiple locations at once. Why aren't options that allow students to drag "A" "B" "C" etc to appropriate locations available?
                              2) Implementation: I want to do class wide "Note Reviews" where students submit answers. Once answers are completed, I share results with class. I would like my students to have access to this session and see ALL responses, not just theirs.
                              3) Organizing questions is much more difficult that it has to be. If I screw up the order…

                              • Short Answer - Add checkbox to NOT display "Correct Response" for RegEx questions

                                For short answer questions I use regular expression checking to improved accurate grading.
                                Unfortunately the Correct Response field containing the regex code is shown in the feedback to students as the Answer. I would prefer to show only the Answer/Explanation when “Consider as Regular expression” is checked.
                                NOTE: This only happens in Self Paced and probably Self Test mode. The regex code does NOT appear as feedback in Instructor led mode.
                                Please make regex work the same in all question modes.

                                • Increase the types of responses allowed in expression type questions.

                                  For example, I would like to pose a question in which student respond with a vector <a,b,c>; however the symbols < and > are not allowed.

                                  Another example, I would like to ask the students for the equation of a circle centered at the origin, i.e., r^2 = x^2+y^2; however the = sign is not allowed!

                                  This puts an extreme restriction on the type of questions and responses available for these types of questions.

                                  It has been demonstrated repeatedly that free response questions perform much better at testing a student's knowledge compared to multiple choice.

                                  Please, please, please fix this…

                                    • module homepage - too much load time!!

                                      When on the module page, there is an extreme time delay as all modules from an entire course are trying to upload the circles with data. A screen shot of this page is attached.
                                      You are also only allowed to delete one module at a time. This is inconvenient if you want to delete multiple modules as you have to wait for them all to load again on that screen before moving on.
                                      Please add a setting to NOT load the pie chart data on the home page list. It is not necessary as data can be found within the…

                                      • Collapsable module folders

                                        Be able to organize modules into folders that can be "closed" or hidden when you are not using those modules at other times in the semester.

                                        • Change from "pixels" to percentage length of vector for vector magnitude questions.

                                          For "direction" type questions, if I want to have it graded based on direction and magnitude of the vector, the tolerance for a correct answer is a number of pixels. I have no way of knowing how many pixels a given vector translates to on anyone's device, rendering this option virtually useless. Please just make it so that it's a percentage length of the correct length.
