=== Unable to See "Exit Student View"  ===
+
====MediaSite Tool Pointing to Wrong Site====
 +
*''System'': Sakai
 +
*''Problem'': All courses created up to this point for Summer A/C/B and Fall 2014 have the MediaSite tool pointing to a Spring 2013 instance of MCB2000 and the tool is not, by default, hidden, so students are accessing these videos.
 +
*''Workaround'': Instructors should hide the tool if they are not using it, or change the address to point to their own MediaSite videos if they are.
 +
*''Status'': Corrected for all courses built from this time forward.

*''Problem'': The New skin implemented has a minor issue that occurs if you use the "View Site As . . " option. You will not be able to see "Exit Student View" text due to the text being white and the skin being light gray.  On some monitors, you may be able to see the text faintly.
+
==== Skin Selector Tool ====
-
*''Workaround'': Place your mouse pointer over the region where the "Exit Student View" normally appears (top right hand side) and click when the mouse pointer image changes to a hand, or highlight the region so that you will see the "Exit Student View" text. Please see screen shot for additional details.<br>[[Image:Student-view-bug.jpg|thumb|left]]''<br>''
+
*''System'': Sakai
-
*''Status'': Under Investigation
+
*''Problem'': Some course sites may now have a “Skin Selector” tool showing up on the tools menu. This tool was removed from previous builds but seems to have reemerged and sites that have it enabled in their tool list will continue to have it until it is removed. The tool is non-functional at this point so it will not impact the skin selection for the course.
-
<br clear="all" />
+
*''Workaround'': The tool can simply be removed by performing the following within the Course Site:
 +
# Site Info > Page Order
 +
# Click the red “X” next to the tool
 +
# Click OK
 +
# Click Save
 +
# Refresh the course site to ensure the tool has been successfully removed

=== Unable to Open PPT Files ===
+
==== Using selective release in Resources adversely affects Site Stats ====
 +
*''System'': Sakai
 +
*''Problem'': When using selective release criteria (e.g. "Show this item only if the following condition is met") in the Resources tool, statistics and usernames in Site Stats become unreliable. Most commonly, this manifests as numbers changing with each page load of Site Stats.
 +
*''Workaround'': None.
 +
*''Status'': Under investigation.

*''Problem'': After the November 16, 2010 Security Update for Microsoft Office 2007, PowerPoint files that have spaces in the file names will not open within Sakai.  
+
==== Page anchors in the e-Learning system do not work within Firefox ====
-
*''Workaround'': Instructors should replace spaces in the file names with - or _. Also, these files will open in "Open Office."
+
*''System'': Sakai
-
*''Status'': Under Investigation
+
*''Problem'': Links internal to a page, commonly known as "page anchors", do not work in Firefox. Rather than the intended behavior of jumping to the appropriate anchor. The page will remain exactly where it was before.
 +
*''Workaround'': Use another web browser, such as Internet Explorer or Google Chrome.
 +
*''Status'': This issue centers on a Firefox bug and not an e-Learning bug.

=== Unable to Download PDFs in Firefox and Chrome ===
+
==== Importing sites with many items in Lessons can interfere with importing course ====
 +
*''System'': Sakai
 +
*''Problem'': In courses with large numbers of individual sections and items (150+) in Lessons, importing course data into another course site can sometimes fail. Given that the failure occurs at different points in the import process, it can appear to users that files are randomly being imported over and randomly being skipped.
 +
*''Workaround'': Contact Learning Support Services staff for help if you end up in this situation. We can take steps to duplicate your existing course as needed. In addition, consider creating your content in the new Learning Modules tool. This tool uses the existing Resources tool for file storage rather than it's own file manager, and it seems to respond better to larger sets of items.
 +
*''Status'': Our developers are working on a migration path from Lessons to Learning Modules with the intent of eventually phasing out the Lessons tool. As such, fixes for this issue are unlikely.
 +

*''Problem'': After a recent Adobe update, some PDFs will not open within Firefox and Chrome. This problem happens anywhere on the internet, not just in Sakai.  
+
==== With larger numbers of items, the Lessons tool fails to load. ====
-
*''Workaround'': You can download the file and open it on your computer, or you can use Internet Explorer, or you can use this [https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/636/| Firefox Plug-in].  
+
*''System'': Sakai
-
*''Status'': Under Investigation
+
*''Problem'': In courses with large numbers of individual sections and items (150+), the Lessons tool becomes slower and sometimes will timeout before loading.
 +
*''Workaround'': Create your content in the new Learning Modules tool. This tool uses the existing Resources tool for file storage rather than it's own file manager, and it seems to respond better to larger sets of items.

=== Users in Sakai Cannot Change Gatorlink Username ===
+
==== Can’t edit section content in Lessons ====
 +
*''System'': Sakai
 +
*''Problem'': If Lessons content has been copied from a previous semester, there are problems editing the content.  Sometimes there is an error message.  Sometimes it will allow you to add a new content section and sometimes it will not.  The problems are varied.
 +
*''Workaround'': Use the "duplicate module" icon to the far right of the module to make a fresh copy.  The fresh copy is editable.  Then you may delete or archive the original module.
 +
*''Status'': Under development. Slated for a Summer 2014 release.
 +

-
*''Problem'': Sakai users cannot change their gatorlink username due to a conflicting account being created.  
+
==== Can’t add/change Profile Picture ====
-
*''Workaround'': There is no workaround. Username cannot be changed at this time.  
+
*''System'': Sakai
-
*''Status'': Under Investigation
+
*''Problem'': In My Workspace > Profile, some users can’t add a profile picture. They can add an album of pictures to their workspace, but they can not set any of these pictures as their default profile image, nor can they upload a new profile image.
 +
*''Workaround'': None.
 +
*''Status'': Our developers are investigating integrating pictures from Gator 1 cards into the e-Learning system. Fixes for this issue are unlikely.

=== Webdav in Windows 7 and Mac Snow Leopard Does Not Work ===
+
==== Video Playback Errors on Mac OS X Using Video Streaming/Storage ====
 +
*''System'': Sakai
 +
* ''Problem:'' When viewing videos using video streaming/storage (not Mediasite) from video.ufl.edu on Mac OS X. Videos can fail to load or immediately give an end-of-content error.
 +
* ''Workaround 1:'' If you have Boot Camp installed, boot to Windows and watch the videos from that OS. Alternately, you can go to a campus computer lab to use a Windows machine or use any other Windows computer that you have access to.
-
*''Problem'': Windows 7 and Mac Snow Leopard operating systems are not compatible with Webdav.  
+
* ''Workaround 2:'' Some students have been able to work around the error by installing/reinstalling [http://www.videolan.org/vlc/index.html#download VLC Media Player].  
-
*''Workaround''&nbsp;: Go [[Resources#Upload-Download_Multiple_Resources|here]] for instructions on setting up a Webdav connection in Windows 7. No workaround for Mac Snow Leopard is available at this time.
+
-
*''Status'' Under investigation.
+
-
=== Some Users See 404 Error When Logging In (Rare) ===
+
* ''Workaround 3:'' Attempt the following procedure:
-
*''Problem'': If a user is enrolled in a Project Site/Course that is deleted, other enrollments are affected causing login problems.  
+
# Download the ASX file by right-clicking (or CTRL-clicking) on the link on your Sakai page.
-
*''Workaround'': Report the issue to LSS staff (call 352-392-4357 Option 3 or write learning-support@ufl.edu). The problem can be fixed manually but may take time. In the meantime, you can login at https://elearning2.courses.ufl.edu/portal/site/. To prevent the problem, do not delete any Project Site that has users enrolled.  
+
# Open the file in Text Editor.
 +
# Copy the URL within the ASX file.
 +
# Paste the URL into your web browser's address bar.
 +
 
 +
==== Problems opening large PDFs in IE/Firefox using Adobe Reader Plugin ====
 +
*''System'': Sakai
 +
*''Problem'': Users have received errors when attempting to open large PDFs using the Adobe Reader Plugin in Internet Explorer.
 +
*''Workaround 1'': Users can use Firefox or Chrome rather than IE
 +
*''Workaround 2'': Users can right click on the PDF link and "Save target as"
 +
*''Workaround 3'': Open Adobe Reader/Acrobat and navigate to Edit > Preferences > Internet. Here, make sure to deselect the option that says "Display PDF in Browser." Click OK to save your changes. Next, open Internet Explorer and navigate to Tools > Manage Add-ons (in newer versions of IE, the Tools menu is a gear icon). Select Adobe Reader and click on the "Disable" button. This will force users to open PDFs in Adobe Reader and not their browser.

==== Messages to Gatorlink Email from e-Learning Captured by UF Spam Filter (Rare) ====
 +
*''System'': Sakai
 +
*''Problem'': There are many places in e-Learning where email notifications can be sent to users from within the system. Some of these emails are captured in the UF spam filter.
 +
*''Workaround'': Check the "Junk E-Mail" folder in your email account and mark any posts from e-Learning as "not spam."
 +
*''Status'': Not a bug.

==== Blank questions in a question pool can cause the system to fail to automatically grade assessments. ====
 +
*''System'': Sakai
 +
*''Problem'': An incorrectly formatted question (e.g. one with no question text at all) can cause the automatic grading to cease in an assessment.
 +
*''Workaround'': Delete the faulty question. The assessment should automatically grade the students submissions as intended.
 +
*''Status'': Working as intended.

==== Can't View Student Submissions in IE Browser ====
 +
*''System'': Sakai
 +
*''Problem'': When accessing student submissions in IE browser, the browser freezes and requires computer restart to resume. 
 +
*''Workaround'':  Use Firefox, Chrome, or Safari browsers.

*''Problem'': Some users may see extra tools on the My Workspace page - such as Syllabus, Roster, Podcasts, etc. that should not be there.  
+
==== Difficult to see Student Answers in Fill-in-the-Blank Questions ====
-
*''Workaround'': Issue can be reported to HD/LSS staff and can be fixed manually but may take time.  
+
*''System'': Sakai
-
*''Status'': Resolved. (This problem is corrected for current and new users. This only applies to users who were early users of eLearning in Sakai.)
+
*''Problem'': When using Fill-in-the-Blank question types, student answers are difficult to view. When viewing the students' submissions, there is a fixed field for the answer.  If the student's answer is longer than the fixed field, it is difficult to see the student's complete answer.
 +
*''Workaround'': The only way to view the complete answer is to place the cursor in the field and then move the mouse to the right.  The answer will scroll in the field.
 +
*''Status'': Under investigation.

=== Messages to Gatorlink Email from Sakai Captured by "Barracuda" Spam Filter ===
 
-
*''Problem'': There are many places in Sakai where email notifications can be sent to users from within the system. Some of these emails are captured in the "Barracuda" spam filter.

==== When Grading, An 'VelocityViewServlet' Appears ====
 +
*''System'': Sakai
 +
*''Problem'': In Assignments, when grading, the following error message is thrown: VelocityViewServlet : Error processing a template for path ''
 +
Invocation of method 'getGradeDisplay' in class org.sakaiproject.assignment.impl.BaseAssignmentService$BaseAssignmentSubmission threw exception java.lang.NullPointerException at /vm/assignment/chef_assignments_instructor_list_submissions.vm[line 659, column 93].
 +
*''Workaround'': A proposed workaround by Narasi Ramachandran is to create a temporary group in Site Info, placing all Students minus the problematic student (this is the Student in which the error occurs on within the Assignments > Assignment > Grade page) in the group. Once this is done, the Instructor can then go back into the assignment and filter the view to the specific group and see all of the grades. Additionally, if a new column is added in GB and the assignment is then modified to point to that GB item, the grades are sent.

=== Auto-Groups Does not Work ===
+
==== When Grading, Not All Students Visible ====
 +
*''System'': Sakai
 +
*''Problem'': In Assignments, when grading, not all students are visible.  This appears to be caused by the app node cache not properly updating student data.
 +
*''Workaround'': In ''Site Info'', click the ''Update Participants'' button to refresh student data.  You may also consider clearing your browser's cache and cookies and restarting the browser.
 +
*''Status'': Under investigation.

*''Problem'': If using Auto-Groups to create groups of everyone in a specific role, it appears that the group was created successfully, but if you come back to the group later, there will be no members in it.  
+
==== Download All Not Functioning Properly When A Group Does Not Submit Assignment ====
-
*''Workaround'': You can do the same thing with manually created groups.  
+
*''System'': Sakai
 +
*''Problem'': In group assignments, if a group does not submit the assignment, the Download All feature in grading only downloads to the point of the group that did not submit.

-
*''Problem'': If all questions as displayed or parts of questions are displayed on a single page they do not load. Assessment does not load at all if using IE 7 or 8 on Windows 7 (Microsoft Vista not tested) works fine on XP.
+
*''Problem'': In some course sites, the "Submit As Student" functionality is causing submissions to appear as submitted by the instructor rather than the student.
-
*''Workaround'': Use Firefox or display each question on its own webpage.
+
*''Workaround'': Contact LSS support staff at 392-4357, ext 3, for further assistance.

==== Discrepancy between decimal points in Gradebooks and in Assignments ====
 +
*''System'': Sakai
 +
*''Problem'': When grading with decimals, Assignments and Gradebooks have different guidelines.  Assignments will only allow for one decimal place.  Gradebooks will allow for 2.  If a column is created in either Gradebook, and the Assignment is connected to that Gradebook column, I may enter a grade with 2 decimal places into the Gradebook, but it will round that grade to 1 decimal place to comply with the Assignment restriction of only 1 decimal place.  But, when you view the grade in the Assignments tool, you will see an error message that reads, "Please grade with only 1 decimal place."  Even though only 1 decimal place shows. You may disregard this message as it has no impact on the grade or the Assignment.
 +
*''Workaround'': Use only 1 decimal place.
 +
*''Status'': Not under investigation as this is expected behavior under the circumstances of the different requirements.
 +
 +
==== Turnitin in Assignments Breaks if Default Settings are Changed ====
 +
*''System'': Sakai
 +
*''Problem'': When using Turnitin within Assignments, a set of default settings appear. Please use only the following highlighted settings to get a report, using any other combinations on the highlighted settings will cause issues and not generate a report.
 +
[[File:Turnitin_settings.png]]
 +
 
 +
On Occasion, you may see other default settings come up.  If you see that, check the boxes that aren't checked and proceed. If you create an Assignment with settings other than the default, reports will not be generated and the settings cannot be set back to the default, so there is no way to fix the Assignment once it is broken. You will often see an error message when you save the Assignment:"!Alert: The assignment was saved, but Turnitin information was unable to be updated.  Please try saving again." This message does not necessarily mean your Assignment is broken.  As long as you have the Turnitin Repository Settings highlighted in the image above, your Assignment is probably fine.  An exception MIGHT be if you change the Open Date, Due Date, or Accept Until Date in a published Assignment.  These dates do communicate with Turnitin and so could cause the problem.
 +
*''Workaround'': You may submit all student papers directly to Turnitin.  The papers can be downloaded in a .zip file from the Assignments in e-Learning and the .zip file uploaded to Turnitin.  If you've never used the Turnitin website, go to http://turnitin.com and type in your email address and click "retrieve password."  An email will be sent to you with instructions on how to login.  Once you login, create a course and an assignment.  Follow the instructions to upload a .zip file to the assignment.  It usually takes about 10 minutes for the reports to generate.
 +
*''Status'': After extensive dialogue with the Turnitin support team, it is apparent that Turnitin is not going to fix the problem.  The good news is that Turnitin is developing a new LTI integration coming available in the next few months that could resolve the problem, but we won’t know for sure until we are able to see the new tool.

==== Certain Symbols in Gradebook Column Titles Prevent Column from Being Associated with Assignment ====
 +
*''System'': Sakai
 +
*''Problem'': When creating an Assignment, there is a choice to have the Assignment create a Gradebook column, or to associate the Assignment to an existing Gradebook column.  If you are associating an Assignment to an existing column, that column cannot have & < or > (ampersand, less than, or greater than) symbols in the title.  Those columns work fine in the Gradebook, but do not associate with an Assignment.  
 +
*''Workaround'': Change the column title to remove those symbols, or have the Assignment create a Gradebook column.

 +
*''Workaround'': Most Chat Room users must refresh their browser in order to view new posts made by other participants.  New posts do not appear until the user refreshes.  The best workaround at this point is to use the "Messages" tool, a much more feature-rich alternative.

===Instructor Comments in the Assignments Shows HTML Tags===
+
==== Student View Isn't Accurate when Dates Have Been Set if Student View was Used Prior to Setting Dates ====
-
*''Problem'': When a grader leaves comments for the student in the "comments" box, the student sees HTML coding in the text.
+
*''System'': Sakai
-
*''Workaround'': If the student submission was made using the "inline" submission box, the instructor can post comments by putting her/his comments in &#123; &#123;double curly brackets &#125; &#125;. The instructor comments appear in red to the student. If the student has submitted a Word document, download the file and make your comments by using "track changes" in Word.  Add the edited submission as your feedback.
+
*''Problem'': In a problem related to the previous Known Issue, if a "user," in this case the Student View" has accessed a Discussion already, setting permissions does not prevent that user from accessing that Discussion in the future.  So, if you view the Discussion using "Student View," then you set available dates for the Discussion and then view it with Student View again, it will appear that students can access the Discussion even though they can't.
 +
*''Workaround'': You may call us at 352.392.4357x3 and ask a staff person to check the view as a real student.

===Blog Permissions Default is That Students Can Not Create a New Blog===
+
*''System'': Sakai
-
*''Problem'': By default, Blogs permissions are set so that students cannot create a new blog.
+
*''Problem'': Under a discussion topic, when one clicks on 'View Full Description,' the text does not stay on the screen. This happens when the text was copied from Word and pasted into the text editor within Discussions without using the 'Paste from Word' icon.  
-
*''Workaround'': Click '''Permissions''' and under the "create" column, check the box beside Student (and CE Student and Auditor if you have participants with those roles).  
+
*''Workaround'': Make sure the full description of the text has no formatting in it. If the text is copied from Word, when pasting make sure to use 'Paste from Word' instead of pasting directly. Or copy the text already in the Full Description, paste it in Notepad (this way the formatting gets removed), then paste that text back in the Full Description.

===UFID Column Causing Problems with File Import===
+
*''System'': Sakai
-
*''Problem'': An update was recently made to the system that adds the UFID column to the file when the Gradebook and Gradebook 2 are downloaded.  This was done to provide the UFID in the file for grade submission to Grade-A-Gator.  So now, when you download either gradebook, you will see a column containing the UFID. The problem occurs if you try to import that file back into Gradebook.  The imported file will convert the UFID to the student name and the import will fail.
+
*''Problem'': In Gradebook 2, if you have set up the gradebook to use points and you have already entered points in columns, you cannot change it to grade using percentages. If you try, you will get an error message.  
-
*''Workaround'': Delete the UFID column before importing the file.
+
*''Workaround'': If you have to change from points to percentages in the middle of the semester, use Gradebook rather than Gradebook 2.  Once you change Gradebook to percentages, the changes will be reflected in Gradebook 2.

==== Issue with Assignment Release criteria logic ====

*''Problem'': If you have any students enrolled in your course who are not associated with a roster, for example a CE Student, Student or Auditor that you added manually rather than through the Registrar, Gradebook 2 can not be exported to a .csv or Excel file.
+
*''System'': Sakai
-
*''Workaround'': Make the person(s) inactive (Site Info and change the "Active" status to "Inactive" using the drop-down menu beside the person(s) name and click '''Update''' at the bottom of the list)and download Gradebook 2.  Change the person(s) back to "active" status once the download is complete.  If you make the person inactive, his or her postings, grades, submissions, etc., will disappear, but will reappear when the person is made active again.  If you have a non-Registrar course where all students are manually enrolled and you need to export to a file, you will need to use Gradebook until this problem with Gradebook 2 is corrected.
+
*''Problem'': When using assignments with Learning modules, and there is a required item prior to releasing the assignment, students cannot complete the assignment after completing the required task. Instead, they get an error, "Alert: You are not allowed to view the assignment." This does not happen with Discussions or Test & Quizzes, however.

===Terminology Incorrect When Using the "Grade Using Percentage" in Gradebook 2===

==== Can’t import Learning Module from one semester to the next ====

*''Problem'': In Gradebook 2, if you set the "Grade Using:" option to "Percentage," the creation of Gradebook Items (columns) still asks for "points" when it should say "Percentage of total grade."
+
*''System'': Sakai
-
*''Workaround''" The tool actually functions the way it should, it is just the terminology that is off.  When grading by percentages all columns are worth 100 points.  When you are creating a new column, in the field where it asks you to enter the "Points," enter the "Percentage of total grade."

*''Workaround'': If you have to change from points to percentages in the middle of the semester, use Gradebook rather than Gradebook 2.

*''Problem'': In Tests & Quizzes, the File Upload question type does not work for studentsInstructor can create the question, but when students try to attach their files, they receive an error report.
 +
*''Workaround'': Use the Assignment tool for that particular question, or have the student email their attachment.

===Problems Presenting in Question Pools Larger Than 100 Questions===
+
==== Calculated questions does not work well with RichText Editor ====
-
*''Problem'': Assessments that pull from Question Pools containing more than 100 questions are showing erratic behavior.  
+
*''System'': Sakai
-
*''Workaround'': Use smaller number of questions per pool and/or sub pools.
+
*''Problem'': In Tests & Quizzes, when creating a new calculated question, the RichText editor will not be able to add many special characters.
 +
*''Workaround'': Please use the plain text editor to create your question.

===Audio Recording Questions not Working===  
+
==== Calculated questions missing extract variables button in question pools ====
-
*''Problem'': The "Audio Recording" type question does not work.  The Audio Recorder will not begin recording.
+
*''System'': Sakai
-
*''Workaround'': The only workaround available at this time is to require students to create an audio file on their computer and upload it to a "File Upload" type question. This is only practical if you know students have audio recording software.  
+
*''Problem'': In Tests & Quizzes, when creating a new calculated question in a question pool, the button to extract variables is missing.  
-
*''Status'': Errors are due to Java policies – Under investigation
+
*''Workaround'': The workaround is to click “save,” then to reopen the question and edit it. The variables and formulas will be extracted when you click save. Users can also create a calculated question when creating a new assessment. If the question needs to be added to a pool, the user can select the appropriate pool in “Assign to Question Pool.

===Facilitators do not See Published Assessments in T&Q (Rare)===
+
==== Student with open assessment can submit after due date ====
-
*''Problem'': Someone with the Facilitator role may not see the list of published assessments in Tests & Quizzes.
+
*''System'': Sakai
-
*''Workaround'': Give the user a different role, such as Instructor or Teaching Assistant.
+
*''Problem'': The setting for late submissions accepted states that late submissions will only be allowed for students who do not have a prior submission. Currently, with this option checked and a due date, students can submit a second submission after the due date even if they have a previous submission.
-
*''Status'': This problem has been resolved for current users, but there are still some courses created on older versions that display this problem.  As new courses are created, this problem should disappear.  
+
*''Workaround'': Do not allow late submissions.

===Multiple Correct Questions and Partial Credit===
+
==== Timer Issue in Tests & Quizzes ====
 +
*''System'': Sakai
 +
*''Problem'': In Tests & Quizzes, if the test has been assigned a username and password, the timer will begin from the moment they click the name of the test.  This doesn't usually pose a problem, but if there is confusion with the username and password, or if the student must then install the Lockdown browser, the timer is running during this time and will use some of the student's time allotted for the test.
 +
*''Workaround'': In Tests & Quizzes, if you are going to use the Lockdown browser, we encourage you to set up a "demo" quiz that isn't worth any points or provide the link for the LockDown Browser download in the Quiz introduction ([http://www.respondus.com/lockdown/information.pl?ID=364713981 LockDown Browser Download Link]). This will allow students to download LockDown Browser before their actual quiz, thereby preventing the issue of them losing time in their quiz after clicking "Begin Assessment."

 +
==== Tests and Quizzes Stuck "In Progress" ====
 +
*''System'': Sakai
 +
*''Problem'': Under certain circumstances, tests can become stuck “In Progress” and never submit. This could happen if the student closed the browser or lost internet connection without hitting submit and never went back to finish. In your list of Published/Inactive tests, if there are any numbers in the “In Progress” column, those tests are stuck. [https://lss.at.ufl.edu/include/images/in-progress.png View screen shot] Prior to August 10, checking the "Automatic Submission" box submitted most tests stuck in progress after the due date passed.  In the updated version, this "Automatic Submission" process is not working. 
 +
*''Workaround'': Currently there is no workaround. Remind students that they must SUBMIT the test and not simply close the browser.  Tell them to make sure they see the successful submission message before exiting e-Learning.

==== Tests and Quizzes Creates Extra Gradebook Columns Upon Republish (occasional) ====
 +
*''System'': Sakai
 +
*''Problem'': When an instructor unpublishes a published test, and then republishes it, sometimes there is an additional column created in the gradebook.  This breaks the test, preventing students from taking the test from that point forward.  Students receive a message stating that their test cannot be submitted because grades can't be sent to gradebook. The extra column cannot be deleted.

==== Multiple Correct Questions and Partial Credit ====
 +
*''System'': Sakai
*''Problem'': Multiple Correct Questions by default take away points for wrong answers.  There is no option to change this. While its not exactly a "bug," it is something that should be addressed.

Discrepancy between decimal points in Gradebooks and in Assignments

Turnitin in Assignments Breaks if Default Settings are Changed

Turnitin settings.png

On Occasion, you may see other default settings come up. If you see that, check the boxes that aren't checked and proceed. If you create an Assignment with settings other than the default, reports will not be generated and the settings cannot be set back to the default, so there is no way to fix the Assignment once it is broken. You will often see an error message when you save the Assignment:"!Alert: The assignment was saved, but Turnitin information was unable to be updated. Please try saving again." This message does not necessarily mean your Assignment is broken. As long as you have the Turnitin Repository Settings highlighted in the image above, your Assignment is probably fine. An exception MIGHT be if you change the Open Date, Due Date, or Accept Until Date in a published Assignment. These dates do communicate with Turnitin and so could cause the problem.
