What's Coming - June 2015

Anonymous and Delegated Grading

Instructors can hide student names from submitted assignments for anonymous grading. Instructors can delegate grading to specific users

Assessments

In calculated formula test questions, instructors can define the number of significant figures required in the automatic generation of answer sets and in the automated grading process. In the past, instructors could specify only the number of decimal places.

Calendar

Individual users now have more choice about how their calendars are formatted both in the Calendar tool and when making date selections. They can alter the first day of the week that starts the calendar view in month and week views.

Users can also now choose the Hijri Islamic lunar calendar.

There is now a course list filter in the calendar.

Student Preview

Instructors can view their course exactly as a student does by using a student account the system generates for them.
