Hide a quiz from admins

Jump to solution

We want instructors to schedule midterm exams as a standard quiz, probably with LockDown Browser. But we need to keep those quizzes hidden from both students and admins for extra security. Admins might see it being scheduled but they cannot see the content of the exam.

Is there anyway this can be done on Canvas?

I believe that would be impossible.  By definition, admins have access to everything on Canvas, so I cannot see anyway to make it where admins cannot access a part of a course that an instructor has created.  

I find it interesting that you want to keep a quiz hidden from the admins at your institution.  I would think they have more than enough other things to do - instead of looking at what midterms have been posted.
