Weekly Quercus Updates

This week: SCORM Grade Passback Issue, Classic Quizzes Bug, Canvas Update!

In this Weekly Update:

  1. SCORM Grade Passback Issue
  2. Classic Quizzes Bug
  3. Canvas Update

SCORM Grade Passback

Please note that grade passback is no longer functioning for some SCORM (Shareable Content Object Reference Model) packages. This may be due to an engine update by Instructure due to stricter compliance checks. If you or anyone in your faculty uses SCORM, please be aware that it may no longer pass grades back even if it was functioning before. We are currently working on a fix, so stay tuned for more info.

Classic Quizzes Bug

There have been reports that some or all of the possible options for a multiple-choice quiz appears missing in the quiz log. If this has happened to you, don't fret - so far there have been no reports of these missing options for students taking the actual quiz. We've reported this issue to q.help, so hopefully the issue will be resolved soon.

Canvas Update

Instructure's most recent Canvas update happened last week on October 17th. Some of you may have noticed a new Recent History button on the global navigation bar. For more information, see How do I view my recent page view history in Canvas as an instructor?

The limit seems to be 13 items at a time in the history.

There have also been updates to notification preferences - user-level notifications page will now match with course -level notifications page.
