Updated Features

Quizzes

Quiz Results Restriction

Instructors can select a new quiz option that lets students view the quiz results only once after each attempt. This option is also designed for instructors who require students to complete quizzes within proctored environments and want to limit quiz result views within that location.

 

Quiz.png
 

To enable this option for a quiz, select the Only Once After Each Attempt checkbox. Students will only be able to view the results immediately after they have completed the quiz. Once they navigate away from the quiz or refresh the page, students will see a message explaining that quiz results are protected and can no longer be viewed.

This option has no effect on instructors, who can always view student results. Additionally, this option may not be appropriate for quizzes that require manual grading, such as essay questions, where students would require additional views to see the updated results.

Notes:

  • The Only Once After Each Attempt option is independent of the Let Students See The Correct Answers option. If both checkboxes are selected, students can only view both their own responses and the correct answers one time. If the Let Students See The Correct Answers option is deselected, students will only be able to view their own responses one time.

  • As the Only Once option shows quiz results immediately after a student submits the quiz, the Only Once option will override any show or hide dates or times, so those fields are grayed out and are not available as part of that option. If an instructor wants to show or hide correct answers on any specific date or time, the Only Once option should not be selected.

Moderate Quiz Results

When a quiz is saved with the Only Once After Each Attempt option, instructors can use the Moderate Quiz feature to give students additional views to their quiz results. Moderate the quiz and select a student, then select the first checkbox to let a student see the quiz results one more time. Once the student has viewed the quiz results, the result extension will be reset and the results will be hidden again.

 

Quiz-Moderate.png
 

This moderate option is independent of any additional quiz attempts. If a student has been granted an extra attempt on a quiz, the student will be able to see the results of their quiz one more time as part of taking the quiz. The moderate quiz checkbox is only for seeing the results again; if this option is selected and students have also been granted an extra attempt on the quiz, students will be able to view the results before they take the quiz, as well as after they complete the quiz.

NoteIf students are allowed multiple attempts on a quiz, instructors may want to edit the quiz and select the Allow Multiple Attempts setting, which gives an option to let students see their quiz responses only after the last attempt.  

Rich Content Editor

Full-screen Closed Captions

Canvas supports closed captions for full-screen videos. When in full-screen mode, caption text is enlarged in proportion to the larger viewing area.

 

Other Updates

Account Settings

HTML5 Video Playback Feature Option  

Instead of using Flash, admins can prefer to use HTML5 for browser videos across their institution. This feature can be enabled in the Account Settings Feature Options tab. Browsers will display videos as HTML5 by default; however, if a browser does not support HTML5, it will use Flash as a backup.

Note: HTML5 Video Playback is a beta-quality feature option, meaning that it is available in your production environment but may continue to receive adjustments by our engineering team.

Assignments

Course Assignments Pagination

The Course Assignments API endpoint supports pagination. Any additional allowed parameters in the API call are also maintained in pagination links.  

User Settings

High Contrast User Theme Text Color

When users enable the high contrast theme in their user settings, all text color throughout Canvas defaults to a 4.5:1 contrast ratio, including text within search fields.

 

 

Fixed Bugs

Account Settings

Remove Icon Accessibility

The remove icon for Quiz IP address filters is labeled for screen readers.

Explanation: The icon to remove quiz IP address filters did not contain a description for screen readers and only referenced it as a link. Canvas code has been updated with a description label for this icon.

Reports Accessibility

Description links within the Reports tab are labeled for screen readers.

Explanation: The small question mark icons next to report names did not contain descriptions for screen readers and only referenced them as links. Canvas code has been updated with descriptive text for each icon.

Assignments

Expand and Collapse Accessibility (Student View)

Students can expand and collapse Assignment sections on the Assignments Index page using keyboard navigation.

Explanation: Students who use keyboard navigation were not able to navigate the Assignments Index page and expand and collapse Assignment sections. Canvas code has been updated to properly focus on expand and collapse controls.    

Course Imports

Discussions State

When copied or imported into a course, Discussions retain their previous published state.

Explanation: Discussions were always published on course copy even if the discussion was previously unpublished. Canvas code has been updated to respect the state of a discussion topic upon course copy.

Assignment Due Dates Adjustments

Assignments and Graded Discussions adjust due dates for all items regardless of how many times they have been imported into the course.

Explanation: When importing Assignments or Graded Discussions into a course where items had been deleted before (usually as a result of a user error on import), their due dates were not adjusted as part of the course import because they were not recognized as a new import. Canvas code has been updated to disregard prior import status and import all items consistently.

Dashboard

Recent Feedback

The Student sidebar Recent Feedback heading shows activity within the past two weeks.

Explanation: The link at the bottom of the Recent Feedback sidebar was set to show assignments taking place in the next two weeks instead of prior assignments that had already taken place. Canvas code has been updated to change the recent feedback text link to mention past activity instead of upcoming activity.

Prior Instructor Roles

Users with deleted instructor enrollments do not receive any student information for the course.

Explanation: Users who were previously enrolled in a course and assigned an instructor role were still receiving notifications for user submissions in the Recent Feedback sidebar, even when their instructor enrollment had been deleted. Canvas code has been updated to always remove the submission comment permission from deleted instructor enrollments.

Discussions

Available From and Until Fields Accessibility

The Available From and Until fields are labeled for screen readers.

Explanation: When a user created a new Discussion, the Available From or Until fields did not contain any descriptions for screen readers. Canvas code has been updated with labels for each field.

Peer Reviews

Students receive notifications when a peer reviewer is attached to a discussion. Notifications are sent regardless of whether the discussion contains a rubric.

Explanation: When an instructor required peer reviews for a graded discussion, Canvas was not sending notifications to students once a peer reviewer was assigned. Notifications were also not being sent if an instructor did not add a rubric to a graded discussion. Canvas code has been updated to always distribute notifications regarding peer reviews.

Gradebook

Message Students Null Text

When using the Message Students Who feature in the Gradebook, Null does not appear next to student names.

Explanation: When an instructor opened the Message Students Who feature, Null was appearing next to the names of each student. Canvas code has been updated to adjust the javascript global command used for student name values.

Message Students Individual View Accessibility

In the Gradebook Individual View, the Message Students Who feature is labeled for screen readers.

Explanation: The Message Students Who button did not contain a label for screen readers and only referenced it as a text. Canvas code has been updated with descriptive text for the feature button.

Global Navigation

Grades

If an instructor is enrolled in more than one section within a course, the Global Navigation Grades link displays only one link to the course.

Explanation: When opening the Grades link within Global Navigation, instructors who are teaching more than one section within a course were seeing multiple course links. Canvas code has been updated to display one course link regardless of multiple section enrollments.

Groups

Groups Page Accessibility

Users can access all Group information using keyboard navigation.

Explanation: Students who use keyboard navigation were not able to completely navigate the Groups Page. Specifically, after joining, leaving, or switching groups, users did not receive a change confirmation, could not view all group details, and were not able to view the group member list. Canvas code has been updated to correct these accessibility concerns.

People

Email Address Error Message Accessibility

The error message regarding invalid email addresses is visible to screen readers.

Explanation: After entering an invalid email address when adding a user, the error message did not allow access to the Start Over button. Canvas code has been updated to properly read the error message.

Remove Enrollment Icon Accessibility

The Remove Enrollment link is labeled for screen readers.

Explanation: On a user’s profile page, the icon to remove enrollments as an admin did not contain a description for screen readers and only referenced it as a link. Canvas code has been updated with descriptive text for the icon.

Quizzes

Graded Date

Grades for student submissions do not post on future dates.

Explanation: After a student score was posted in the Gradebook, sometimes the grade would disappear; the Gradebook history would show that the grade had been posted on a future date. Canvas code has been updated to adjust the graded_at value according to current time zone for accurate date submissions.

Delete Uploaded File Accessibility

The button to delete an uploaded file is labeled for screen readers.

Explanation: In File Upload question types, the button to delete an uploaded file did not contain a description for screen readers and only referenced it as a link. Canvas code has been updated with descriptive text for the icon and to refer to the link as a button.

Quiz Previews

Quiz preview statistics do not appear in quiz results.

Explanation: When an instructor previewed and then submitted a quiz, the quiz results included the instructor preview as being from a logged out user. Canvas code has been updated to exclude instructor quiz previews when displaying quiz submissions.

Rubrics

Add Rubric Button

The Add Rubric button is always available in Outcomes. 

Explanation: When a user opened Outcomes and added a new rubric, the Add Rubric button would disappear until the browser window was refreshed. Canvas code has been updated to always display the Add Rubric button in Outcomes.   

SpeedGrader

Chrome File Icon Tooltip

In Chrome, after viewing the tooltip for the File icon in SpeedGrader, the tooltip disappears.

Explanation: When using SpeedGrader in a Chrome browser window, users who hovered over the File icon generated the icon tooltip, but the tooltip would not disappear until the window was refreshed. Upon further investigation Canvas engineers discovered this behavior occurred because of a tooltip display bug within Chrome. Canvas code has been updated to close Chrome tooltips after their initial view.

iOS Browsers

Users who use Safari to view SpeedGrader on their mobile devices can scroll through all student submissions.

Explanation: iOS mobile users who viewed SpeedGrader using the Safari browser were not able to scroll vertically through student submissions. This behavior only occurred within Safari and did not affect the Canvas SpeedGrader app. Canvas code has been updated with an adjustment to the cascading style sheet.

Syllabus

Public User Views

Users who are not logged in to Canvas can view a syllabus if it is made public.

Explanation: When a user tried to access a public syllabus, the syllabus page would not display the list of assignments. Canvas code has been updated to confirm non-logged-in users as viewers for a public syllabus.

 

 

07/26/14 Canvas Production Release Notes Featuring Rails 3 Upgrade and Observer Enhancements

Erin Hallmark
posted this on Jul 21 17:38

In this production release (07/26), instructors can manage their assignments using an additional time zone enhancement, and parents who sign up for their own Canvas account can observe more than one student. Canvas APIs have several new and updated feature options, and the Canvas Rails 3 platform is getting an upgrade.

The production notes also include updates to existing Canvas features and fixed bugs.

Note: Production release notes indicate Canvas updates that will be included with Saturday’s release. New features may differ from those available in your beta environment.
 

Next release schedule:

  • Beta release and notes: 08/04/14

  • Production release notes: 08/11/14

  • Production release and documentation: 08/16/14

 

New Features

Assignments

Time Zone Context

Beneath the Due Date field, Assignments (in Assignments, Discussions, and Quizzes) display the time zone date and time according to context. This feature is helpful for instructors who manage courses in a time zone other than their local time zone. If an instructor creates or edits a due date for an assignment, the course and local times are displayed for reference.

 

 

Observers

Parent Signup Link to Multiple Students

Parents who sign up for their own Canvas account can observe more than one Canvas user if the user is part of the same institution. Once a parent creates an account and links to a student, the parent’s profile page displays an Observing link that shows the student being observed.

Parents can add and observe additional students within the same account by entering the student’s username and password and clicking the Add Student button.

 

Screen Shot 2014-07-21 at 11.47.13 AM.png

Notes:

  • Observers cannot add students whose accounts are not within the same institution. To observe students in another institution, observers must set up a separate account within that institution.

  • The Observing link only displays names of students who were added by the Observer. The link does not display names for student accounts added by the institution via SIS import.

  • Users cannot receive notifications in the beta environment.

 

New APIs

Observers

Users can manage Observer roles in the User Observees API.

 

Updated APIs

Assignments

Users can view created and updated elements in the Assignments API.

Files

Users can view user and group files in the Files API.

 

Other Canvas Updates

Rails 3 Upgrade

At Instructure we're committed to staying current with the best technology to provide you with world-class stability, performance, and security. Over the past few months we've been testing and coding—and testing some more—to upgrade Rails to the Rails 3 platform. This upgrade enables us to create features more quickly with improved code libraries and functions as well as keep us current on security patches to keep your data safe.

The Rails 3 upgrade will be released to all application servers over a two-week period, starting July 26 with our Free for Teacher accounts. We're moving slowly across all production accounts so we can monitor the process closely and make any necessary adjustments. This upgrade requires no action on your end—there is no downtime required and no risk to your data, and we have a painless rollback process in the unlikely event something goes wrong. If anything appears out of the ordinary in your production environment, please file a support ticket so we can look into it for you.

Thanks for all you do to help us make Canvas better.

Conversations

Email Replies Marked as Read

When replying to a message in an external email client, the original message within Conversations will be marked as read.

Dashboard

Unpublished Courses in Course Enrollments

When users view their complete courses list from Global Navigation, they can verify their course enrollments in courses that are unpublished. This change corrects a bug regarding displaying unpublished courses. However, unpublished courses can appear in current courses, past enrollments, and future enrollments sections. If a future unpublished course is left unpublished when the term begins, the course will appear in the current courses section as part of the current term, instead of remaining in the future enrollment section. 

Admins always have the option to restrict users from viewing any course (regardless of state) until the start date for the term. This option can be enabled in Account Settings by selecting the Restrict Students from Viewing Courses before Start Date checkbox.

Languages

Language Preferences

Norwegian (Bokmäl) and Persian (fa-IR) are available as Canvas-supported languages within account, course, and user language preferences.

Permissions

Permissions Caching

When a user makes an action in Canvas where a permissions check is required, Canvas calculates the requested permission instead of caching all the permissions for the request immediately. This change will improve performance and response time in key permissions features such as Student View and masquerading.

 

Fixed Bugs

Accessibility

The following accessibility issues have been corrected within Canvas:

Announcements

  • The external feeds menu is labeled for screen readers.

Assignments

  • Assignment Group names, total, and weighted percentages are labeled for screen readers.

Discussions

  • The Discussions attachment button is labeled for screen readers.

Modules

  • Modules pre-requisite options are labeled for screen readers.

  • The Add Module Item button is labeled for screen readers

People

  • When users add people to a course, the email address text entry field is labeled for screen readers.

Rubrics

  • The long description field is labeled for screen readers.

  • The edit and delete buttons are labeled for screen readers.

Student Learning Mastery Gradebook

  • Learning Mastery Outcome titles contain an H4 heading attribute.

  • The Alignments link includes aria attributes and an alignment ID.

Syllabus

  • The Jump to Today link focuses on the first item in the list instead of the last item.

Assignments

Assignment Titles

On the Assignment details page, Canvas wraps long assignment titles.

Explanation: When users created Assignments with long titles, on the details page, the title hid the edit, settings, and published buttons. Canvas code has been updated to wrap long titles on the details page.

Complete/Incomplete Assignments

Adding an Available From or Until date to a Complete/Incomplete assignment with zero points does not affect current scores. Additionally, updating points possible for a Complete/Incomplete assignment properly updates Grades in the Gradebook.

Explanation: If an instructor created a complete/incomplete assignment and added an Available From or Until date, student scores marked as complete were changed to incomplete. Moreover, when an instructor updated the points possible for a complete/incomplete assignment, any existing grades would not update according to the new point total. Canvas code has been updated to better support grades for complete/incomplete assignments.

Course Imports

Imported Questions Question Bank

When users import a QTI file that does not correlate with a specific quiz, the questions import correctly into a specified Question Bank.

Explanation: When a user imported a QTI file that only included question bank questions, the questions were not correctly importing to the specified Canvas Question Bank. Additionally, the questions were added to the default Imported Questions Question Bank, which would appear even if it had previously been deleted. Canvas code has been updated to properly import question bank questions and not affect any additional question banks.

Relative Margin of Error Formula Questions

When users import a QTI file or course copy import, formula questions with a relative margin of error remain as a relative margin of error.

ExplanationWhen a user imported a course that contained formula questions with a relative margin of error, the question switched to an absolute margin of error. Canvas code has been updated to respect the type of margin for each question.

ExamView Files

When users import an ExamView QTI file, the answers align to the quiz questions.

Explanation: When a user imported an ExamView QTI file into a course, some of the question answers were marked as distractors. Canvas code has been updated to better associate answers with QTI quiz questions.

Dashboard

Global Navigation Courses Menu

Global Navigation shows the Courses menu if a user has any kind of enrollment (future, past, or current).

Explanation: If a user only had a student role and had a past or future enrollment based on term dates, the Courses menu was replaced by the Home menu and was not displaying any courses. This behavior also occurred for instructors who had enrollments in courses associated with completed terms. Canvas code has been updated to display the Courses menu when a user is enrolled in any type of course.  

Document Previewer

Public Course Files

The Canvas document previewer displays all files for public courses.

Explanation: When a user in a public course tried to access a course file, the document previewer generated a server error. This behavior occurred because Canvas was trying to verify the user ID before opening the file regardless of the course type. Canvas code has been updated to display files to users in public courses.

Gradebook

CSV Root Account Columns

When a user downloads a CSV Gradebook file containing a Root Account column, the Gradebook correctly uploads the CSV file.

Explanation: When downloading a CSV Gradebook file, users may see a Root Account column. This column is created when the enrolled user’s account is shared across institutions. Canvas code has been updated to disregard the Root Account column and properly upload the Gradebook CSV file.

Total Column Sorting

When viewed as a percentage, the Total Column sorts based on the achieved percentage, not the achieved points.

Explanation: Users who showed the Total Column as a percentage were not able to view sorting correctly. The sorting parameter was based on highest to lowest (or vice versa) of points achieved by the student regardless of whether the column was display in percentage or points. Canvas code has been updated with better sorting parameters based on the

Grades

Student Grades Comments

Leaving a comment on a student’s grades page does not create duplicate comments.

Explanation: When an instructor opened an assignment from a student’s grades page and left a comment, the comment was duplicated within the assignment page. This behavior did not occur in SpeedGrader. Canvas code has been updated so the Save Comment button only creates one comment submission.

Groups

Student Groups

If a student creates a group, only specified group members are added to the group. Students can leave a student-created group at any time.

Explanation: When a student created a student group, all students in the course or section were added to the group. Moreover, students were not able to leave students groups they did not join. Canvas code has been updated to better support student-created groups.  

Notifications

Conversation Subject Lines

Conversation subject lines are  included in HTML notifications.

Explanation: In the HTML email redesign last release, the design inadvertently removed the subject line from the notification email. Canvas code has been updated to include the subject line in email notifications.

Quizzes

Fill-in-Multiple-Blanks Question Type

If an instructor changes the order of a Fill-in-Multiple-Blanks quiz question, the responses appear in the correct fields.

Explanation: When an instructor created a Fill-in-Multiple-Blanks quiz question and then edited the order of the question fields, quiz responses were appearing in the wrong fields. Canvas code has been updated to extract quiz answers according to the order of the response fields.

Rich Content Editor

Accessibility Markup

Users can add aria attributes to HTML elements.

Explanation: Aria attributes were not part of allowed elements and attributes within the Rich Content Editor. Canvas code has been updated to allow aria attributes in the Canvas HTML whitelist.

Video and Audio HTML Content

Users can add video and audio tags in the HTML view.

Explanation: Video and audio HTML were not part of allowed HTML tags within the Rich Content Editor. Canvas code has been updated to allow these HTML tags in the Canvas HTML whitelist.

Title Attributes

Title attributes can be used in all HTML tags.

Explanation: When title attributes were used in tags other than a or img, the whitelist removed the title tag. Canvas code has been updated to allow title attributes in any HTML tag.

SpeedGrader

Total Number of Graded Assignments

SpeedGrader does not include Test Student when calculating the total number of an Assignment’s graded submissions.

Explanation: When giving the number of students graded for an assignment, Speedgrader displayed the total count of users in sections in a course including the Test Student. This behavior caused confusion because the number of graded students does not always equal the number of students in the course. Canvas code has been updated to calculate the number of submissions for enrollment types that are visible to all users.

alli
posted this on Jul 07 17:57

In this production release (07/12), Draft State becomes a standard feature in Canvas for all users. As announced at InstructureCon, a new Grading feature makes face-to-face teaching more efficient and improves student engagement and retention. Additional design enhancements to existing features have also been made throughout Canvas in this release.

The production notes also include updates to existing Canvas features and fixed bugs.

Note: Production release notes indicate Canvas updates that will be included with Saturday’s release. New features may differ from those available in your beta environment.

*Features are subject to change. Please see the complete release notes for details.

We welcome video feedback at instructure.com/videosurvey. If the embedded video does not appear, reload your browser window.

Because the Independence Day holiday extended this release, our next release will only be two weeks as indicated:

  • Beta release and notes: 07/16/14

  • Production release notes: 07/21/14

  • Production release and documentation: 07/26/14

 

New Features

Grades (Student View)

Learning Mastery

Instructors who have enabled the Learning Mastery Gradebook have the option to display outcome results to their students. This view gives students another tool to improve their behavioral learning especially in outcomes where students are average or below mastery.

Notes:

  • The Student Learning Mastery Gradebook is a Course-level feature option, which means that once it is enabled by the institutional admin, the feature can be enabled by instructors on a course-to-course basis. If you are an instructor and do not see the Student Learning Mastery Gradebook available to you as a Feature Option within Course Settings, please contact your institutional admin.

  • The Student Learning Mastery Gradebook is a separate Feature Option from the Learning Mastery Gradebook. If the Student option is enabled, the view will display to students even if the Learning Mastery Gradebook is not enabled.

Located on the Student Grades page, the student view of the Learning Mastery Gradebook shows students their standards-based performance in the classroom based on the various outcome expectations.

 

 

Students can expand and collapse each outcome to view the outcome descriptions, as well as view any alignments to assignments that exist with that outcome. Outcome mastery for both the overall outcome and the individual outcome descriptions are identified by color, the same found in the Learning Mastery Gradebook: green (mastery), yellow (near mastery), and red (below mastery). An overall outcome will remain red if fewer than half of the individual outcomes have been mastered; once all individual outcomes have been mastered, the overall outcome will turn green.


Outcomes

Friendly Name

Users who create new outcomes have the option of creating a friendly name, which is the name that appears to students if they can view Learning Mastery scores on their Grades page. This option allows the full name of the outcome to still exist in the course.

 


People

Group Tabs

People has an updated design that displays access to user groups in the same page view. In Course Navigation, clicking the People link still loads all users in the course, but they are displayed within the Everyone tab. Any existing user groups will be listed as additional tabs for easy access to the group information.

 

 

If you do not have any user groups in your course, Canvas will display a Groups tab that will take you to the student groups creation page. You can also create a group by clicking the Add Group Set button or the sidebar’s View User Groups button.

 


For students, group tabs are also incorporated on the People page.


Groups

Group Set Drop-down Menu

When viewing a student group, instructors can easily switch and view all groups within a group set by clicking the drop-down arrow next to the group name.


Edit Group Name

Instructors and student group leaders will see an Edit Group link as part of the group dashboard. This link allows quick access to edit the name of the group. Additional editing functionality will be available in a future release.

 


Updated Features

Course Dashboard

Course Status

The Course Dashboard helps prominently display the course status in the sidebar, where courses can be more easily published using the Publish button. If necessary, a course can also be unpublished in the sidebar. We recommend not publishing the course until it is complete, as publishing a course generates invitations for students to join the course.

Once a published course contains graded student submissions, the course status buttons will disappear as the course can no longer be unpublished.

 


Course Settings

Course Status

The Course Settings page will also display the course status in the Course Details tab. If the course cannot be unpublished, the hover text will notify you accordingly.

 


Files

Document Previewing

Canvas has made a change to the document preview program used within Canvas. All functionality remains the same but the design has been updated across the menu bar. The full-screen option is also available as part of the new previewer.

Note: This feature is being rolled out to all accounts individually and may already be available in your production environment. However, if your document preview program has not yet changed, it is not yet available to your institution.  

 


Groups (Student View)

Page Redesign

Students have a new Groups view for an enhanced user experience. On the Groups page, students can view the different groups in their course and each group’s respective group set. Students can also view the status of each group. If a group is a self sign-up group, students can leave and join groups; if they are a member of a group, they can click the Visit link for easy access to the group dashboard.

Note: New Student Groups Page is an Account-level feature option, which means that once it is enabled by the institutional admin, the feature can be used in all courses automatically. If you are an instructor and do not see the updated design on the Student Groups Page when using Student View, please contact your institutional admin.

Students can click the name of a group to view all group members. They can also use the search field to locate groups or people in a group.
