How does one duplicate a quiz (or have a roundabout way)?

Jump to solution

How can I duplicate a quiz?  I have two classes for Year 2 ASL and I set up an assignment using Quizzes where one class signs statements using money signs that the other class can answer and vice versa.  To avoid hard work duplicating the assignment (I can make changes in the questions itself) with the same format, I would like to duplicate the original 'quiz'. 

I did a search here in Canvas, nothing. A lot of things can be duplicated but not an assignment, specifically in Quizzes section. Is there a roundabout way other than question banks?  #assignments quizzes

TIA

Hi  @jwitulski 

Are the classes in separate Canvas course shells? If so, the you can simply do a course copy, and just copy the quiz into the second shell. Learn how at How do I select specific content as part of a course import? 

Otherwise, you could export just the quiz, then re-import. Canvas will append a "-2" to the copy. Learn how at How do I export a Canvas course? and How do I import a Canvas course export package? 

And finally, you could upload your quiz to Canvas Commons, then download it back into your course, again Canvas will append a "-2".  Learn more at https://community.canvaslms.com/docs/DOC-16703-4152725303   and How do I upload an item from Commons to my course? 

I hope this is helpful,

Kelley

Duplicating quizzes as described above is fairly simple, however it is good to know that if you are in a module that has a quiz within it, you will not be able to duplicate that module. A workaround is to create the quizzes separately under the quizzes tab, then after you duplicate your module, simply add it again. I hope that helps!

To Kelley: Both classes share the same course shell, split using sections. 

To George: I don't incorporate quizzes in modules (someday maybe, just not now)
