New ruler and protractor tools for students to use in assessments!
Teachers can now enable rulers and a protractor for students to use when answering assessment questions.
Teachers can make these tools available for an entire assessment or for individual questions.
In this release, we added new options to Domain setting > Student options that allows admins to specify how they want to manage visibility of Excused activities (activities a teacher has excused a student from).
- Allow students to show or hide activities they have been excused from (default).
- Always show activities students have been excused from.
- Always hide activities students have been excused from.
In this release, we also improved objective editor to trim leading and trailing spaces from objective IDs to prevent issues with references to objectives.
