We would like to be able to disable this feature ourselves or have it unchecked by default. Our teachers are complaining about this.
I second this suggestion. If we can't disable this feature, then at least allow faculty to select the checkbox themselves and have the system remember this setting through cookies. As it is right now, faculty are becoming frustrated with seeing exempted attempts in the Needs Grading list each time they access this page. They don't want the additional hassle of checking and unchecking boxes.
I also agree with this. We've gotten numerous comments from faculty thinking that Blackboard was broken and actually submitted a support request which was closed as this was functioning as designed. Faculty are not only being confused at this change in their courses mid semester, but some are seeing additional notifications from prior courses.I think this should be off by default with a way to turn it on via a checkbox for a course (and have that cached somewhere) if a course would want to use it, which most would not. The option is nice, but shouldn't be forced on faculty.
I'd vote on this but it's still listed as under review
Please allow us to vote this change up. Our instructors are also complaining about having to repeatedly uncheck a box to preserve the preference they already had. How about just remembering the state of that box for each instructor so they can decide whether they want it checked or not as a one-time default setting action?
I also agree on this one, and it´s quite disturbing that this just happened a couple of months ago.
This is the comment from Behind BB:
I did some additional research into this and Product Development has clarified that this new behavior was implemented as part of the fix for the known issue in Article #000049723 (attached). As such, this behavior is Functioning as (recently) Designed. With that in mind, it might be worth Submitting an Idea on the Blackboard Community Site with your suggestions on how you would like this Setting to be handled.
