what's the difference between survey and quiz?
A survey does not have “correct” answers that are graded. A quiz does.
I believe Whitney will talk a bit more about this.
so a survey really can't take the place of a homework assignment?
Surveys are for collecting data.
A survey can’t be graded. That is the main difference.
ok thanks - then probably not useful for my course
Exactly, I have had students complete a “graded” survey after a group project that explained what role they had in the group project and any input they want to provide about their group assignment
So just an information collection tool.
I had wanted to do that for their homework but I couldn't figure out how to grade a "graded survey"
The “graded quiz” may be more useful for homework. You can just label it Homework. You can use the “quiz” tool to make homework, worksheet, exams, etc.
Can we upload a link for a quiz? I teach court reporting and it will be audio files. I will be grading them not canvas
sorry I should have waited
I’ve had trouble with multiple blanks. It wouldn’t let the students answer.
If I give 2 attempt, first attempt grade is not posting in canvas for a few students, why is it?
Scientific notation I have problem to enter in answers
yes by default I used a graded quiz
Hello Amirra, here's a good job aid for questions with multiple blanks: https://community.canvaslms.com/docs/DOC-26332-how-do-i-create-a-fill-in-multiple-blanks-quiz-question
Lisa, we would need to have a deeper conversation about attempts not posting. If it’s doing it for some students and not others, we would need to explore why. What campus are you on?
file upload question will probably work for court reporting.
Lisa, whatever campus you are on, there is an Instructional Innovation Center (IIC) or something similar, e.g., Teaching and Learning Center, Distance Learning. There are people there who can help you with your question. Some of us in this session work in those Centers.
i work at SAC in the court reporting department. can I get contact info please?
Your contact person Nadia Shelby.
thank you. is that firstname.lastname@example.org?
let me check
For a long exam, would the “shuffle” feature shuffle within section? Or would all questions throughout the exam be shuffled?
Nadia Shelby: email@example.com
The shuffle feature shuffles the answers and not the questions.

Hey everyone, it may be a good idea to mute yourself if you are not talking so background sound doesn’t get picked up.
Thanks. I will get with Nadia about our unique department use of Canvas quizzes and assignments. I am signed up for the assignment zoom session also.
