Transferring tests (quizzes) from one university to another

Jump to solution

I have several tests (quizzes) in my completed course at one university. However, I am currently teaching the same course at another university. Because of all the coding and time involved in creating a major test on Canvas, I would like to transfer that content from my one account to the other. How do I do that? Thank you for any advice.

Good morning, @WilliamSwanger ...

This should be quite easy for you to do.  Here are the steps:

  1. You'll want to export your quizzes from the course where all the quizzes currently live.  You can use this Guide to export your quizzes from Canvas...which I think will give you a downloadable *.imscc file or a *.zip file.  How do I export quiz content from a course?
  2. In your other Canvas environment, log into the course where you want to import the quizzes into.  Use this Guide to import the file that you had downloaded from your other Canvas environment into this course.  How do I import a Canvas course export package?

Hopefully, once this is done, your quizzes will appear the way you want.

Please keep us posted here in the Community if you have any questions about this...thank you!
