*''System:'' Canvas

*''Problem:'' If users are enrolled in a large number of courses, they will see a severe lag in the time it takes to be able to use the "More courses" option when trying to send an email.  It can take up to 5 minutes for all of the enrollments to load.
 +
*''Workaround:''If possible, reduce enrollments.  You can also wait for the enrollments to load, or use the courses drop down in the left hand corner to specify the course before you attempt to send a message.

<ul><li><i>System</i>: Canvas

</li><li><i>Problem:</i> In courses of more than 500 students, Speedgrader times out and client gets the error message “Oops that last request didn't work out.” 
 +
</li><li><i>Workaround:</i> Go to Gradebook, filter by section (if there is more than one section associated with the course), then choose Speedgrader from the Gradebook.  This should cut down on the number of students pulled into Speedgrader at once which should allow Speedgrader to load properly.

*''System:'' Canvas
 +
*''Problem:'' If a conference is created with a lengthy description, the "start" button disappears preventing anyone from joining the conference  The edit option is also gone so that the instructor cannot remove the description.
 +
*''Workaround:'' Keep the descriptions short (a few words) or don't use one at all.  If you already have the problem, use FF browser to edit the description.
 +
*''Status:'' Shelved - Instructure has deemed that the workaround should be used.

After the export, the gradebook is counting those differentiated assignments that should not count against the student as zero, dropping the students' grades. NOTE:  Students view of their grades is not affected.

====Reports That Quiz Answers Modified====
 
-
*''System'': Canvas
 
-
*''Problem:'' We've received some reports that quiz answers differ from those answers that were purportedly submitted.  Please report any suspected cases to learning-support@ufl.edu with the course number, quiz/assignment, date/time, student, detailed description of the problem, and any available screenshots for further investigation with Instructure.

====Manipulation of Quiz Answer Radio Button Upon Review====
+
====Quiz Index Page Round up Total Number of Points====
-
*''System'': Canvas
+
*''System:'' Canvas
-
*''Problem:'' When a user is reviewing their answers, especially in the case of incorrect answers, the radio button choice appears to be fixed (selected) and a red "You Answered" along with a red outline around the answer appears. The correct answer is denoted by the colorless and/or grey "Correct Answer".  If a user clicks on the text of another answer, the radio button is changed.  A user could then take a screenshot as purported evidence that the system has incorrectly marked their answer.  This does not impact the actual recorded answer and the manipulation will revert upon refreshing of the page.
+
*''Problem:'' If a quiz has a total number of points as decimal, for example, 3.5, that number gets rounded up (4 in this case) on the Quiz index page. (The quiz total point is reported and calculated correctly in the gradebook though.)
-
*''Workaround:'' If you need assistance in identifying suspected cases please contact us at (352)392-4357 option 3 or by e-mail at learning-support@ufl.edu.

*''Workaround:'' No workaround at this time.

====Subscript and Superscript too small in default font size====
+
====Auto-Submitted Quiz When Student Is Not Viewing Page Not Populating Score In Grades====
*''System'': Canvas
*''System'': Canvas
-
*''Problem:'' When creating questions, and using Subscript or Superscript, the number is too small to be readable on many computer screens without zooming in.
+
*''Problem:'' When quizzes that are automatically submitted while the student is not viewing the page, the submission isn't fully created/generated in the SpeedGrader or Gradebook.  Grades will reflect a score of "0". The actual grade will not appear until either the student goes back to view their submission, or until it's viewed by the Teacher in the "Moderate Quiz" page.
-
*''Workaround:'' Increase the font size if you are using sub or superscript, even if it looks ok on your monitor.
+
*''Workaround:'' Students should ensure to click "Submit" for their quizzes, or go back to view their quiz soon after it is auto-submitted. If the Teacher has any indication that a student may have taken the Quiz but it is not showing in the Gradebook, they should go to the Quiz, click on "Moderate This Quiz" on the right, then click the student's name to view the submission.
-
*''Status:'' A feature request has been submitted to Canvas. You can vote here: https://help.instructure.com/entries/45684970-Default-font-size-is-larger-in-question-body
+
*''Status:'' Shelved:Issue is tied to a big feature idea called EPIC still being worked on by Canvas Engineers

====Special Characters in Fill in the Blank Questions====
-
==== Page Error When Attempting to Reset Course Content ====
+
*''System:'' Canvas
-
*''System'': Canvas
+
*''Problem:'' In Fill in the Blank questions, if there are any special characters (%$', etc) AND the answer is more than one word (Newton's Law), the student's answer will be marked incorrect, even if it matches exactly the correct answer given by the instructor.
-
*''Problem:'' This error will occur for courses that have had an LTI tool added and then launched within the course after June 14. Trying to reset course content after that has been done will not be completed, and you will instead receive the Page Error message.
+
*''Workaround:'' If your answer requires special characters, use the "Multiple Blank" Fill in the Blank type questions.  So the example of Newton's Law would display as two separate blanks "Newton's" and "Law" instead of one blank with "Newton's Law."
-
*''Workaround:'' Unfortunately, there are no good workarounds for this in the meantime; courses will have to be re-created at the account level, either manually or via SIS Import. Please contact Learning Support Services at 352-392-4357 option 3 or via e-mail at learning-support@ufl.edu for assistance.

====Disappearing Students in "Assign to" Section of Practice Quizzes====
 +
*''System:'' Canvas
 +
*''Problem:'' In practice quizzes, students in the "Assign to" field may disappear (if the instructor is assigning to individual students) resulting in practice quizzes assigned to no one. Usually the students will disappear about five minutes after saving the settings of the practice quiz.
 +
*''Workaround:'' The first workaround is to assign the practice quiz to everyone within the course. The second workaround is to change the quiz type to a "Graded Quiz" and then assign the quiz to the students taking the quiz.
