Instructor Q&A

Assessments - Student Viewing Correct answers issue


We are currently experiencing an issue when students go to view the results on an assessment.  The settings are set to "yes" underneath the "allow students to view results after an attempt" option.  However, students are able to view the correct answers.  We have tested a few things and we found that right now, there is no difference in "yes" and "yes, with correct answers."  It is giving the same outcome to the students viewing privileges.

Last week, we used this same system with no issues.  When marked "yes," students were only able to see which questions they got wrong without seeing the correct answers.

Is there any solution you can provide? Is this a possible bug?

    Hi Chris,

    Thank you for reaching out in the Schoology Community!

    Our team identified an issue related to students seeing the correct answers for Assessments when the "Allow students to view results after an attempt is submitted" option is set to "Yes." 

    I'm pleased to announce our Engineering team released a fix for this. If you continue to experience issues, please let us know!

    Hello Claire,

    I am having this same issue with an assessment I'm currently giving this week (I verified by viewing the course as a student).

    I am also having this issue. Did they really fix it? Because mine is showing correct answers and I want students to do test corrections so I don't want them to see the correct answers. 

    Also, the live progress feature, which I find very useful, hasn't been working for a very long time. Can this please get fixed?

    This issue persists.  I'm currently experiencing this and it is now Dec 2021.  Will this be fixed across the board?
