Tell Me

Scenario: I have 220 students who will take a quiz. How do I guard my quizzes security and ensure students are in class and not sharing information? How can I view their responses as they are taking the quiz? Are there any data on activity logs and IP addresses?

  1. When faculty create a Canvas quiz, there are several quiz options you can set that provide a level of quiz security and question integrity
    Quiz settings and integrity
    1. Shuffle Answers (1): The option to randomize the answer choices in each question.
    2. Time Limit (2): Setting a time limit by entering the number of minutes students have to complete the entire quiz.
    3. Allow Multiple Attempts (3): Allowing more than one attempt per question.
    4. Quiz Responses (4): Allows students to see their answers, feedback generated from correct or incorrect answers, and questions they got incorrect. Faculty can also restrict students viewing the quiz results to only once after each attempt.
    5. Show one question at a time (5): Faculty can show one question at a time and lock questions after answering.
    6. Quiz Restrictions (6): Adding an access or password to the quiz. Only provide the password when all students are accounted for in the classroom. Also useful in a proctoring scenario.
    7. Filter IP Addresses (7): Ask IT Services for the IP addresses based on your room location and add a range of the IP Addresses.
    8. Assign (8): Add Opening and Due dates to restrict when the quiz is available to students. This is done in conjunction with the Time Limit setting.
  2. As faculty you maximize your quiz security by following good protocols on quiz creation
  3. Faculty can also create question groups to randomize quiz questions
  4. Once a Canvas Quiz has been created and published, two links are made available which are associated with quiz security and integrity; Quiz Statistics and Moderate This Quiz
    Canvas Quiz items
  5. Quiz Statistics becomes available once the quiz has been published and has at least one submission. You can view their responses as they are taking the quiz
  6. The Speedgrader allows faculty to view the submission details for students once they have completed taking the quiz
  7. Quiz Statistics provides faculty with the option to download two comma separate value (CSV) files to view Student Analysis or Item Analysis for each quiz question
    Quiz summary
  8. The Quiz Summary shows statistics for all sections including the quiz average score, high score, low score, standard deviation (how far the values are spread across the entire score range), and average time of quiz completion
    Quiz summary
  9. The Moderate This Quiz setting allows the faculty to option to view the progress of student submissions and view the number of quiz attempts each has taken. You can also grant students extra attempts, grant extra time for timed quizzes, and manually unlock quiz attempts
    Moderate this quiz settings
  10. By clicking on a student name that is hyperlinked, faculty will be able to view the Quiz Logs for that student submission
    Quiz logs
  11. Faculty can see students quiz results as they are taking the quiz using the Canvas menu item (three dots)
    Student quiz results
  12. For students who have taken the quiz, their names will be a hyperlink to what they have submitted so far. The screen also shows students who have yet to take the quiz
    Quiz results
  13. As faculty, you are able to obtain student activity records (including IP addresses) from the Canvas Activity Logs
  14. Faculty are encouraged to further guard their quizzes security for in-class quizzes by having students sign-in on an attendance sheet before and after the quiz begins
  15. To restrict the sharing of answers, randomize the quizzes and only show one question at a time using the Canvas setting (see Step 1)


Student Integrity

Add a non-question type statement as the beginning item in your quiz to provide students with a clear statement and commitment to maintaining and encouraging high standards of academic honesty and integrity. For example, the Department of Mechanical Engineering and Engineering Science at UNC Charlotte provides all their students with access to a short quiz on academic integrity.
