A round-up of all improvements and changes to the Buzz platform in version v3.0.75, available on October 11, 2018.

Updates

In this release, we:

  • Updated the color in the Help widget for better contrast.
  • Enabled graders to assign and modify scores on all assessment submissions, instead of just the most recent submission by each student.
  • Improved the wording for the Course settings > Advanced options checkbox that affects how Buzz calculates due dates in Continuous courses. It now reads: When auto-generating due dates, provide less time for activities that require only viewing.
    • When unchecked, all activities are considered equally to calculate the time allowed for each and what due date to assign.
    • When checked, activities that require only viewing get less time than other activities. 

NOTE

To create an activity that requires only viewing from the student, use the Assignment, Custom Activity, Rich-text, or Website link Activity types and disable the This activity is gradable option.

Technical note: If you create activities through the XLI API, activities that require only viewing are non-gradable item’s whose type is AssetLink or Resource.

Fixed issues

In this release, we:

  • Fixed an issue where the HTML aria-describedby attribute was being stripped from an activity's content.
  • Updated assessments to scroll to the top of a new page after navigating to it.
  • Fixed a sorting issue in the Domain Dashboard summary.
  • Fixed an issue where the Admin > Domain tab wouldn't refresh if you changed domains inside the tool.
  • Fixed an issue where the question editor would sometimes show an incorrect Points value for questions that are links to other questions.
  • Updated the audio/video recording dialogue to allow one recording session per use; now, when users want to re-record, they Save or Cancel the file they've created and open the dialogue again.
  • Fixed a sorting issue in the Activity Grader where the Prior and Next buttons weren't aligning with the correct student.
  • Fixed an issue in the Grade Editor where the Objective Mastery tab would sometimes show an unnecessary row with no labels other than a progress bar. That row no longer appears.

APIs

  • GetAttempt: Fixed an issue where a passage question could be displayed multiple times if the same question ID exists multiple times in the course hierarchy.
