  1. 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.

  2. 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".

  3. 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.

  5. "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)

  7. 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.

  9. Allow team assignment with a document upload.

    Clicking and dragging is tedious with large classes.

  11. 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.

  12. Scientific notation.

    The program should allow multiple forms of an answer for scientific notation. Though we can tell the students to submit in a particular way, they generally don't listen and it would be nice to be able to see all the write and wrong answers without having half of the right ones be marked wrong due to formatting.

  13. 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?

  14. Course Archival

    Please add an option to save course (and student) data beyond one year without having to extend the end date of the course.

  16. 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.

  17. Open "teacher deck" on another device

    I would like to present from my desktop and have the teacher view and control from an ipad or second device. PearDeck has the option to "open teacher deck on another device". I'd like to be able to do the same thing here.

  18. Matching Interface

    The matching interface is horrible. Instead of first choice, second choice, etc. students should see the actual choices.

    Also, despite repeated attempts I cannot get the matching question to list the same option only once. For instance, if I have three subquestions that match to "zero," the option "zero" shows up three times. LC help pages say this should only show up once. I have tried to copy and paste the answers, still to no avail

  19. Implementing Vector Notation in Expressions

    Vector notation, variables with upper arrow, is used in mathematics and physics to differentiate vectors from scalars. It is not currently supported within "Expression" questions. Vectors can be entered in the math palate, using the keyboard command \vec, but it is not recognize by auto scoring.
