Setting different availability TIMES for linked sections within one class

Seguir

It would be nice to be able to go beyond just the due date and to be able to set the TIME of availability for tests/quizzes for the linked sections within the class.

    I absolutely agree. There are some other issues with linked sections, too, that seem like pretty easy issues to work out. Beyond individual (section) availability for quizzes, it would be great to be able to create one calendar event and have the same options to change the date/time of the event for each linked section. Furthermore, it would be great to have some kind of solution for grading groups within the linked sections beyond simply needing to create a separate assignment for each section. For example, if I "Individually Assign" an assignment to grading groups for the "master class," I can enter grades for the assignment, but for the linked sections, I can't; the boxes have (-) in them. The only way around this is to make an actual separate assignment and only make it visible to all the separate sections and then "Individually Assign" it to on a sub-group in that section.

    I agree! Can you please make this possible?

    Yes, please! I see this as an essential part of test security when teachers have multiple classes taking the same quiz.

    I second (or 6th) this question, when I use this for in class testing this is important.  I know there are ways to "catch" the kids, allowing only 1 attempt,etc, but it would I would prefer to be proactive.

    I also agree - it would be a great feature to be able to set different times for test availability for each section.

    Although the language of "Availability" and "Attempts" has been clarified, it is still not possible to set a different time window for linked sections to "make attempts." This is an ESSENTIAL feature for teachers who have multiple sections on different days!

    If Schoology folks are reading this, there are several other threads with this same request. The votes should be aggregated!

    I am also in need of separate publish dates and due dates for linked sections.

    It is a needed essential for test security between/among sections.

    YES, please figure out a way to enable this feature!  There is MAJOR test security issues within linked sections!  I teach 3 sections of the same course and learned very quickly that I can't use Schoology for summative assessments.  I had a student take a test in my first section.  When that section was over, I locked the assessment and disabled the ability to view submissions.  Later in the day my second session was taking the test, which requires me to open access to the test as well as viewing submissions so they can get immediate feedback on their score.  During that time, a student from my first section opened their test submission and took screenshots of the entire test with correct answers and shared those with other students.  Needless to say, I had to make an entirely new assessment.

    I have created 3 different identical assessments and named them by section, but that is cumbersome and seems to defeat the purpose of being able to link sections because that is what I would have to do if they weren't linked......

    I've been in the habit of selecting "No" in the "View Submissions" portion of the "Settings" in the Tests.

    It seems to prevent the early sections from being able to see their work once submitted.

    Try that until Schoology makes the change in the availability under "Enable from .. "

    Another option is to assign the Tests individually to the different sections. I know... this is more work.... but to avoid your security issue... that is what we all may need to do. And you would still have the issue of the early section screen shooting to show later sections.

    We also have "Classroom" on our devices which if students are locked into the test they are unable to take screen shots while they have the test open.

    Also, what is the problem with the students waiting until the next day or the evening to see the results? Just use the "No" selection in the "View Submission" of Settings.

    Good luck.

    I agree with Katie.  I have 6 sections and need to close the test to all but one section at a time, but I can't enter different times to enable the test when my sections are linked.  Please make this option available.
