Fill in table questions in the New Quiz engine

Jump to solution

I often use "fill in multiple blanks" type questions in my CANVAS assignments that involve filling in tables. My approach is to build a table and put the answer vectors in each cell as below:

I noticed that New Quiz engine doesn't allow tables in the question stem (it doesn't appear to allow multiple lines of text or tabbed spacing either so I can't make a table manually). Is there a work-around?

Hello @jashley6 

Thank you for contacting Canvas Support. We're sorry to hear you've been experiencing issues with using tables for fill in the blank questions. In classic quizzes this was possible, but as of now it is not in New Quizzes. There  are certainly others who also want this and we understand the need for such a feature. There are ideas and suggestions here:

Hi Greydon,
Thanks for the response, but this question should not be tagged as "solved", when the response is that si cannot (yet) be done n the new system.
