Bonus! Workaround on how to make an “Extra Credit Quiz” in Canvas
Making an entire quiz worth extra credit isn't easy in Canvas if you are using a Points based gradebook. The following directions explain how to make this happen:
Create a quiz
Provide point values for each question. (making the quiz worth "X" amount of points - the total number of points the extra credit should be worth.)
Publish the quiz and have the students take it.
Once all students have taken a quiz and received a score, which is recorded in the gradebook.
Edit the Quiz and change the Quiz type to a Graded Survey worth "0" points.
The student will then receive whatever extra credit value they earned.
IMPORTANT: When copying the course it will copy it as a survey - so be sure to Edit and revert it back to a graded quiz for the next term!!
How to give Extra Credit to students who complete the Course Evaluations on Blue?
Note: As a survey software, the Blue Evaluation System is anonymous. Because of this, there are two popular workarounds for giving extra credit to students:
Whole Class Participation
Extra credit for the entire class based on the completion threshold. For example, 5 points of extra credit for everyone if 70% completion is reached, 10 points if 80%, etc...
Individual Student Participation
If you'd like to handle it individually, an extra credit assignment can be set up in Canvas that requires students to submit a screenshot of their completed eval task in Blue (not the responses, just the "to do" page showing it was turned in). To do this in Canvas, you just create a 0-point assignment, then manually enter point values for each student who provides proof of completion.
