A round-up of all improvements and changes to the Buzz platform in versions v3.0.196 & v3.0.197 available on October 1, 2020.

New "Congratulations!" prompts for continuous courses

As previously announced, students in continuous enrollment courses now receive congratulatory prompts when they complete the last activity assigned them on the current day.

This is intended to help students recognize when they are caught up on a course, so they can assess their best next steps.


In this release, we also added support for student accommodations in assessments for Publish Anywhere.


  • Fixed an issue where the Text-to-speech button would sometimes do nothing when you clicked it.
  • Fixed an issue where attempting to print an assessment that used Assessment templates would show an empty white box instead of the assessment content.
  • Resolved an issue with navigating to the next item in the Activity player for observers, when current activity is visible to teachers and observers only.
  • Added a confirmation prompt in the Assessment activity editor when deleting an assessment question when filtered by a group.
  • Fixed an issue in the import feature where files with ".csv" extensions were sometimes treated as tab-delimited files instead of comma-separated files. 
  • Resolved an issue with recording audio on Firefox browser.
  • Added missing validations to the Edit blackout date dialog for students to ensure information is submitted in correct format. 
  • Resolved an issue with attempting to view pending scores as an observer of a student. 


Updates in version 2020.09.30.5004.

  • General system improvements.
