New Canvas Feature -- Regrade a Quiz

Instructors can re-grade auto graded questions in a Quiz if they determine that there was a problem with a multiple choice answer or want to give credit to everyone for an ambiguous question (Multiple Choice, True/False, and Multiple Answer question types).  To see the options for re-grading, edit the Quiz and then edit the specific question. Click on the green arrow icon that indicates the correct answer.  Four re-grading options will appear.  Make sure you update the question after you select the desired option. Then, be sure to Save the Quiz so that changes can be automatically reflected in the student grades.

New Canvas Feature -- Assign different due dates to students in the same course.

Instructors can now differentiate assignments between individual students and even assign different due dates. Some of you have been looking for this feature for extending due dates on quizzes and assignments for individual students and now you can do it.  This would also allow you to assign remedial assignments for some students that would not count against other students.  Assignments that are not assigned to a particular student are not factored into the student’s overall grades.
