A round-up of all improvements and changes to the Buzz platform in versions v3.0.252 available on October 7, 2021.
Coming soon to Buzz!
We announce significant upcoming features and changes in a standalone Coming soon article that appears at the top of the What's new section.
New Course Settings > Advanced option setting
We added a secondary option that appears when you check the Automatically assign zero scores to past-due activities box in Course Settings > Advanced options. The option reads Mark auto-zeroed activities as complete, and unchecking it prevents Buzz from marking activities as complete when automatically assigning zeros to them.
New Accommodations option
We added a new option to the student Accommodations card. It reads Never automatically assign zeros to my past-due activities, so the selected user can be exempt if the Automatically assign zero scores to past-due activities box is checked in Course settings > Advanced options.
In this release, we also:
- Improved accessibility of the elapsed- and remaining-time timers for screen readers in the assessment player.
- Resolved an issue where opening a Peer assessment from the Activity grader in a course with no student enrollments would display a blank screen.
- Added a missing error message to Grade Editor when you attempt to grade an activity that has no aligned standards.
Updates in version 2021.10.05.6545.
