Download quiz as Word or PDF

In secondary schools, some students prefer printed  assessments. In fact, it's an accommodation for some. And sometimes Canvas or the school Wi-Fi is down, so the students aren't able to access assessments online. For these reasons, and also to save assessments if I ever lose access to Canvas, it would be nice to be able to download quizzes in PDF or Word format. I don't see an option for that currently. Copying and pasting the whole thing into Word takes FOREVER because you have to change all the formatting to get it to fit into a reasonable number of pages. ExamView had this option, and it was very useful.

if you are using classic quizzes, then there is a way to print it out using a javascript add on as explained in the following:

I have this script installed and it works really good.  I have modified it a little so that I can print out student submissions for record keeping.

forgot about the following which may work as well  - this is a chrome extension:
