    How do I use Draft State in Pages?

    Draft State allows content in Pages to exist in an unpublished (draft) state. Unpublished content is invisible to students.

    Note: If you use Modules in your course and add a Page to a Module, please be aware that the state of the Module overrides the state of all module items. You may want to consider leaving Pages unpublished until you are ready to publish the entire Module. For more information please see the Modules Draft State lesson.

  • If your institution is using a student information system (SIS) for grading purposes, you can set up a quiz to be sent back to the SIS. However, you must first specify which quiz(zes) in the course should be sent to your SIS as part of the grade publishing process. Each quiz must be modified individually. However, your institution may have already enabled an option for all quizzes to be configured for your SIS.

    Once a quiz is set up to be sent to your SIS, the Assignment Index Page and Quizzes Index Page let you enable or disable a quiz by clicking the SIS sync icon next to the quiz.

    Each SIS requires specific setup procedures to properly post grades for quizzes. Depending on how quizzes are assigned to students, some quizzes may not be supported. For details and and troubleshooting tips, view the appropriate help document for your SIS integration:

     

    Note: The Banner integration does not require any assignment setup and only pulls total grades from the Gradebook.

    How do I view a quiz log for a student?

    You can view quiz logs to view the status of your student quizzes. This feature is also designed to help you investigate problems that a student may have in the quiz. The quiz starts the log when students begin the quiz, so some logs may show that the quiz is in progress.

    If you gave the student multiple attempts for a quiz, the log will always show the most recent attempt by default. However, you can view any attempt within the log.

    Notes:

    • Quiz logs are only retained for six months.
    • Quiz Log Auditing is currently a course opt-in feature. To enable the link to view quiz logs, learn how to manage feature options in the course features lesson.
