Can I create a multiple choice quiz in a word document - and then convert it into Canvas format?

Jump to solution

Hola Canvas,

Thank you for your support.

I'm an English instructor.

For each novel I assign to a class, I like to make my own multiple-choice quizzes.

Can I format a multiple choice quiz in a word document to convert to Canvas.

I feel more comfortable with this procedure.

Please let me know.

Paz,

JL

Hi  @jay_lewenstein  

Currently, this cannot be done in either the legacy quizzing tool nor in New Quizzes.

However, both tools support QTI uploads, so this means that you can use a third-party tool like Respondus 4.0, and others, to create your quiz items, then export those as QTI files for upload into Canvas.

I hope this is helpful,

Addendum: There is a feature idea currently open for voting at https://community.canvaslms.com/ideas/2086-create-question-banks-from-msword that you might be interested in supporting. Check it out. Please note that all quiz engineering resources are now directed towards the New Quizzes tool.
