How do I add a quiz to the Grades so I can input a grade?
Hello Lynne Sex Welcome to the Canvas Community. Thanks for posting your question. To add a quiz to your course, you will want to do that via your "Quizzes" page of your course. As long as the quiz is graded, it will show up as a column in your Gradebook. Here are a couple tutorial videos that will help to get you started:
Quizzes Overview (Instructors)
Quizzes.Next Overview (Instructors) - Note, your school may not have Quizzes.Next enabled at this time. This would be a decision made by local Canvas administrators at your school.
Once you've reviewed those videos, you can find more detailed Guides about Quizzes by going to the "Guides" menu at the top of any page here in the Community, and then clicking on "Canvas". Then, click on the red "INSTRUCTOR" button. Finally, choose either "Quizzes" or "Quizzes.Next" from the list to jump straight to more detailed Guides.
I hope this helps, Lynne.
Lynne Sex , greetings! If you are having the students take the quiz IN Canvas, then the information Chris provided above is exactly what you need! If you have already had the students take the quiz (on paper or outside of Canvas) and you just want to add the grades to Canvas, then what you'd want to do is add an "assignment" to Canvas, not a quiz. A quiz is only used if you are going to have the students take the quiz in Canvas. Otherwise any other grades you want to add to Canvas should be added as assignments. For information on how to do this, see the following - How do I create an assignment shell in an assignment group? Once you create the assignment you can then go to your Grades page and enter grades for this assignment for your students.
Hope this helps! Kona
