K-State Online April updates

by Information Technology ServicesKSOL Info

Updates to Canvas were released on April 2. Canvas operates on a monthly release cycle through which features are added or updated on the third weekend of the month. To see all the new features and fixed bugs, view the complete April Release Notes. In addition to the Canvas release, Information Technology Services releases updates to services and integrations with K-State Online through the month as necessary.

The following updates have been made in K-State Online:

  • Individual View Final Grade Decimal Places — In the Gradebook, Individual View shows two decimal places for a student’s final grade. This change helps improve consistency with rounding in the Gradebook.
  • User Menu Analytics Link & Profiles Addition — The Analytics link has been added to the people page menu for easy access.
  • Manually Graded Question Quiz Statistics — In addition to showing a link to SpeedGrader, quiz statistics show relative grade performance for manually graded essays and file upload quiz question types.
  • Group Submission Individual Comments View — SpeedGrader does not display individual comments made in group submission assignments. Group submission assignments are assignments where the instructor creates a group assignment and one submission counts for all group members. This change was made so instructors can always verify that comments are made for the entire group; SpeedGrader defaults the comments field so that it cannot be changed.
