You can take a quiz on your mobile device.

This lesson shows native quiz viewing in the Canvas app. Quizzes can be viewed natively for an enhanced user experience, with the exception of quizzes that contain Fill-in-Multiple-Blanks or Formula questions. Additionally, the Canvas app does not support one-question-at-a-time quizzes, quizzes with passcode restrictions, or quizzes with IP address restrictions. Quizzes that contain question types not supported by the mobile app will be redirected to the web version of Canvas.

You can easily skip to another question or flag a question in the app. For timed quizzes, the app allows you to turn the timer on and off.

When you are finished, you may be able to view your quiz results in the browser version of Canvas.

The images in this lesson are shown for a phone display, but unless otherwise noted, tablet displays mirror the same steps.

Note: The Course Navigation menu matches the browser version of your Canvas course. If Quizzes is not available in Course Navigation, it will also be hidden from view in the app.
