Reordering Quizzes?

I have a question about reordering quizzes. It would be nice to reorder the quizzes so that the quizzes I'm grading show up first (similar to how we can re-order discussion boards). I know I can sort by availability, but that view is really messed up for my particular class. 

After tinkering a bit in I-Learn I found this reorder option under "More Actions." 

I'm a little scared to play with it.  If I reorder the quizzes here, does it change how the quizzes are ordered in my gradebook? Will it effect the order in which the students see their quizzes in my gradebook? Since I have a mixture of quizzes, assignments, and discussion boards, I'm scared of making everything weird and out of order in the actual gradebook. 

Is this the correct way to reorder quizzes? Or is there a better way to reorder quizzes? 

Thanks!

  • Rachel, that other screen shot helped me out more. Thank you for all you do.

     

  • Rachel,

    I have tried this option, and it still doesn't change the order of the assignments in this section for me. Did you have any luck with getting things to move around?

    • Hi Tim, 

      Thanks for the question. When I tried to reorder them by assignments, it wasn't very effective because I have everything in the "Category" view. It would shift the assignments around a little within their actual category, but the category order still took preference over how I assigned order to the assignments. Hope that makes sense. Here's a screenshot to demonstrate. 

      In this example, I tried to re-order it so all my Learning Reports were up top. After I did this, it moved the Learning Reports to the first of their category, but it didn't impact the lesson order. 

      If you want to move the current lesson to the top,  I did have success with the method Amy described in this comment thread. 

      Here's a copy of the instructions from Amy (thanks, Amy!) 

      Hi Rachel,  I discovered this a few semesters ago and I LOVE IT!!  Actually, if you use the "Edit Categories" option instead, it goes straight to the page that you can "sort order" each Lesson.  I just make the old lessons number 15 (you can make them all 15 when you are "done" with them) and they will go in alphabetical order after Lesson 14.

  • Rachel,

    What you do with this in the quiz tab only affects what you see in the "quizzes" menu - it doesn't affect the gradebook at all.  However, your students will see the same view you see.  I made a category called "instructor graded", put it at the top, and moved the instructor-graded items into it.  That way my students know which quizzes I'm grading, and it's easy to see if any quizzes have been submitted late

    • Hi Tina, 

      This is a great idea. I was playing around with it more trying to recreate what you described. I can see where to add another category, but I can't see how to add items to my new category. Any tips? 

      Thanks!

    • That is awesome! It would be awesome if that was done automatically for us. =)

  • Feel free to change those settings. They will change the view only for you and not for your students.
