Converting test/quiz to Assessment Error

Follow

I have been using the conversion tool for awhile now and have had no issues with it until now. I have a test saved as a test/quiz in my resources and am trying to convert it to an assessment. When I click on the "transfer history" link it shows the "error" instead of "complete" like all the others. I have tried recreating the test/quiz but it did nothing. Has anyone else come across this and have a fix?

    Hi all,

    Thank you for reaching out in the Schoology Community!

    I am sorry to hear you are experiencing difficulty with this issue. 

    We’ve reported this behavior to our Engineering team with a priority of Moderate Impact. This means that we understand converting tests/quizzes to assessments is not working fully as intended, but prioritization of this issue is weighted against more urgent issues and other features we are developing.  Unfortunately, there are no known workarounds at this time. 

    Please let us know if there is new information about this issue that might change the priority. If it can be included in a larger scope of work or the priority changes because we missed something from you or hear back from other Schoology customers about this issue, we’ll let you know.

    Otherwise, you’ll receive an update from us via this thread when the issue is resolved. Thank you for your patience!

    Best,

    Nina Lewis

    I have also had this issue recently, it is very frustrating that the feature seems to have stopped working. Anyone else?

    No fix. Looks like we need more people to up the urgency of it for it to be addressed....

    We are experiencing this at Northside Independent School District and we need this to be fixed as quickly as possible. It is having a huge impact on our teachers and students.

    There are many threads on this topic. I hope Schoology adds up all these to get a clear picture of the scope of this issue!

    We are experiencing this as well. This is highly infuriating as we are trying to upload final exams with no fix in sight.

    I also experienced this problem. I hope that the Engineering team of Schoology will fix it right away because this is a big help of my teachers if they want to convert their test/quiz material to assessment.

    Experiencing this issue as well. We need to have our assessments password protected and it appears there is no way to password protect test/quizzes.

    I FOUND A WORK AROUND! It does take sometimes a few hours but: 

    Inside your test/quiz, under options, add the questions to a new question bank. Save that question bank into your resources. In resources, change the question bank into an item bank. Then wait forever (took mine overnight to convert) and the next day import the item bank into an assessment! 

    Schoology, if you see this, please verify that this works for everyone and SHARE it with the other teachers who have posted this issue! I know many have. 

     

    TLDR: You cannot covert test/quizzes to assessments, but you CAN convert question banks to item banks!

    Thanks Mrs. Elliott!

    I actually had my district IT department head send in a ticket and things started working for me again on Monday (yesterday, 1/11). May be worth checking out to see if it works for you guys, as well. If not, consider sending a ticket in. I got a fix within 1 business days.

    Same here.  Error every time.  This is causing issues and taking too much time to copy and paste every single part of the question into an Assessment Item Bank.  Needs to be fixed ASAP.
