Known Issues

(Jump to recently resolved issues)


Outcomes are not showing in New Quizzes


When attempting to add an Outcome to the assessment or a question, no Outcomes are available.


Outcomes from Canvas may take up to 48 hours before newly-created outcomes can be available.

If Outcomes have not been configured for your course, please contact your Canvas administrator for assistance.


New Quizzes content doesn't export to Commons or Course export files


Exporting from New Quizzes is not yet available and has not been connected to the Canvas export and sharing options of Commons or a course export file. Furthermore, both use the Common Cartridge standard which does not formally support QTI v2.x, which many New Quizzes item types require.


Users may use Course Copy to copy New Quizzes assessments between courses.


New Quizzes in Blueprint courses do not update in associated courses


New Quizzes assessments are initially copied but later changes to New Quizzes assessments are not included in subsequent sync attempts.


In the Blueprint course, copy the assessment and make desired changes to the copy. See How do I duplicate an assignment?
