Canvas - How do I use New quizzes?

Canvas currently supports two quizzing engines – Classic Quizzes and New Quizzes. New quizzes can be accessed from the Quizzes link in the course side navigation menu. After clicking on Quizzes, a new quiz can be created by clicking the +Quiz button and then selecting the option for New Quizzes. Guides for using New Quizzes and creating various questions types in New Quizzes are provided below. Quiz questions can also be pulled from item banks in New Quizzes.

Tips and Tricks

  • A quiz can be copied from one course to another by using Direct Share.
  • If you have a student who needs extra time on a timed quiz, perhaps due to ACCESS accommodations, you can make the adjustment to give individual students extra time.
