Fixed issues

In this release, we:

  • Fixed an issue that caused the resource header content to wrap on small screens.

  • Fixed an issue that allowed students to see deleted tasks in their To-do List and Calendar.
  • Fixed an issue that kept the Item Grader and Grade Editor from consistently displaying a grade entered by the teacher to override Buzz's calculated score.
  • Fixed an issue that kept users from attaching course resources to agendas.
  • Fixed issue that kept content authors from making Khan Academy activities gradable.
  • Revised the Activities tool to better accommodate screen readers (Student app).
  • Revised the Student Home page to better accommodate screen readers.
  • Revised tab focus in the student Activities tool, so that it is automatically pointed toward the Notes field after the user attaches a file.
  • Updated expand/collapse button alt text to better represent its purpose.
  • Updated course chooser dropdown functionality to accommodate accessibility needs.

Editor (beta) fixes

As part of our continual efforts to improve the new Editor tool, we:

  • Fixed an issue that caused students to receive an "Access denied" message when trying to access content from the Digital Library that had been copied and edited by a content author.  
  • Revised the way the Editor manages resources linked from other courses, so they can now be properly previewed.
  • Fixed an issue in the rich text editor that sometimes caused an image, table, line of text, etc., to duplicate itself when the user hyperlinks it to a URL.
  • Updated Passage questions to give passages their own ID.
  • Fixed an issue that kept embedded code from being displayed in the rich text editor when the user switches to fullscreen view.
  • Fixed an issue that kept the selected value from being saved in the Display question results dropdown for homework activities in Homework Settings.
