How to Turn Off Spell Check in Fill in the Blank Quizzes

I found an article that says spell checker can "be turned off for all quizzes at the org unit level". I have no clue where to do that. Can someone explain where I need to go?

Thanks :)

  • Hello @Chelsey.Y.865

    Thanks for connecting with the Brightspace Community.

    Config variable d2l.Tools.Quizzing.ShowSpellCheckInAttempts determines whether the spell checker is displayed for users when taking a quiz

    Under the variable, you can put your desired org unit to turn the feature on or off.

    Thanks and Regards,

    I have no clue where to find this. I don't know what a config variable is.

    I've looked under Course Administration and then Tools. That's where I would expect to find this, but it's not there….

    @Chelsey.Y.865 Configuration variables can only be set by D2L admins at your institution. It's probably someone in your IT department. It's not something that can be changed by regular users.

    @Jennifer.W.973 So if I ask the D2L admins at my institution to set this does it affect all teachers or only the teachers who choose to turn off spell check?

    Once it's set can I turn off spell check myself as a teacher or does that need to be done at the admin level as well?

    @Chelsey.Y.865 It will most likely set it for the entire institution, but your admins might be able to add exceptions for individual courses (if they are willing to). I don't believe instructors would have any control over it within courses.
