Canvas Exams and Navigation Tools for Students

Jump to solution

Does Canvas offer any navigation tools for students to use during exams?

For example, highlight portions of question text and multiple choice answers? Or flagging questions to answer later.

Hello @DebRoberts ...

Depending on which version of quizzes that you are using, both Classic Quizzes and New Quizzes offer a way for students to mark questions during a quiz that they can come back to later.

I hope this will help a bit.  Sing out if you have any other questions about this...thanks!

Hi @DebRoberts 

Unfortunately, we don't have an option to highlight/mark the exam. This is not a feature we have.

You are welcome to create an idea on our community about this. 

How do I create a new idea conversation in the Instructure Community? 

 

For now, the only option would be the flagging/pinning questions. 

 

I hope you will have a great day. Thank you.

Thank you so much! This is very helpful! 

Do you know if there's a feature to highlight/mark through exam questions and answers? I understand that ExamSoft and board exams, such as MCAT, USMLE-STEP, have this feature for students who require it as an accommodation. How are others accommodating students? Thanks!
