Online learning remains the focus of many suggestions we receive from our PlusPortals community. Our latest release implements structural and performance updates for quizzes, laying the foundation for future refinements to quiz functionality.

Moved Quizzes to a Pop-up Window
Students now take quizzes in a pop-up window that fills the web browser. This improves usability by
- shifting focus from the portal interface to the quiz interface;
- preventing data loss due to unintentional navigation away from the quiz; and
- optimizing quiz performance.

Fixed File Descriptions for File Upload Questions
Previously, on File Upload quiz questions, the content students added to the File Description box was not visible to teachers. This information is now available.
Fixed Date Handling for Gradebook Assignments Added to the PlusPortals
Previously, when teachers added a Gradebook column to the PlusPortals as an assignment, the due date was set to 1 day before the date chosen in the Gradebook. A date handling correction resolved this issue.
