Printable / PDF-exportable quizzes

This idea has been developed and deployed to Canvas
The Quiz Build page provides quiz printing options. For more information, please read through the  Canvas Release Notes (2021-08-21).

As an instructor, I want to be able to export a Canvas quiz as a PDF. This would enable me to easily print quizzes for the purpose of accommodation, for allowing a given student to take a quiz outside the timeframe established for the quiz for all other students, etc.

Not sure if this was mentioned, but this would be also be helpful for accreditation purposes. in place of doing screen printing.  I also like for the fact of being able to help students that might have difficulty in computer usage due to physical aliments permanent or temporary.  It would be much easy than recreating a test to help them.

It would be great to be able to not only print a blank quiz, but for a student or teacher to have the ability to export/print a quiz they had taken that shows all questions and the student's answers.  There are many use-cases for such a feature.

At our school, students get their device taken away for improper use and we need to be able to print assessments when they do not have a device on test day.  Believe me you don't want that kid to just sit and watch everyone else take their test.

At ISTE last week, I spoke with a Canvas rep about this issue. They let me

know about an LTI that exists that allows a Canvas Quiz to be printed and

answer sheets that can also be printed.

The LTI is

I hope this helps. I'm trying to get my district to activate it for us now.

Over 500 votes and two years later...I really wish we had this going in some form by now. The lack of the ability to print quizzes in a usable way impacts my workflow regularly and wastes hours of my time each month.

Is there any kind of eta on this at all?

 @kona ‌ Can you help us get an answer on this? It's been three years in the works and they keep telling us "it's coming". I don't believe them anymore!

I'm with Audra White; what's the hold up on this? Would have been a great help to teachers and students affected by the recent natural disasters.
