How do I do a batch upload of questions to create a quiz?

Jump to solution

I am trying to create a quiz.  Other courses I teach use Examsoft which allows an upload of a properly formatted exam as a .rtf file.  From there I can edit questions, build an assessment, etc., as needed.  Is there a way to do this in Canvas, or, do I have to enter and retype/copy/paste each question and multiple choice entry individually?  Thank you.

Hi  @daniel_peters  

This can be accomplished in Canvas, but the file upload type must be .uti. ExamView and TestGen are two of the applications I am familiar with that support UTI. There is a nice discussion in response to someone else's similar question at Importing Quizzes/Tests from ExamView which you might find helpful. While the process is slightly different for each application, the Canvas operations will be the same.

Hello  @daniel_peters ...

In addition to the helpful information you've received from  @kmeeusen , I'll also share with you a blog entry I wrote a while back called Batch Uploading Quiz Questions with Respondus‌ that may be of interest to you.  Keep in mind, as I state in my blog, that the Respondus 4.0 Exam Authoring Tool software is a paid product.
