The new setting? None of these. Just the percent grade.
I've been creating quizzes on D2L for a few years now. This problem has never occurred before. We’re six - scratch that, make it seven - weeks into the semester. The students in my first year comp class have taken 13 quizzes. They’ve received ZERO feedback. They couldn't even tell what answers they got right or wrong. I found this out yesterday.
Soooo…I fired off an irate-but-respectful "WTF, why didn't anyone tell the faculty about this change?" email to IT services, signed as “Dr. Mindbender,” and in return, this insolent pack of lies arrived in my inbox:
I can assure you that for any new quiz the default view for 'Show Question' is always set to NO and it has been that way from the beginning. Show questions is set to NO by default, but "Show attempt score and overall attempt score" is turned ON by default—but this only applies if the quiz is set to "allow attempt to be set as graded immediately upon completion" in the Properties tab. For any new quizzes you create, the 'Show questions' must be turned to YES and then you can pick what you want students to see. There was no change made to this setting. For the imported quizzes, the settings was changed to YES when they were created and the settings stayed. Let me know if you wish to talk about this.
Let’s see here…you lie to me - twice - about changing the quiz settings. You pedantically lead me through basic functions that I already figured out. You use an abrupt and dismissive tone.
Righty-o, then. My associate Dr. Strelnikov and I are going to wander over to your cubicle for a little chat. You'll know it's us. We'll be the ones carrying matching bags of doorknobs. See you real soon.
