Is there a way to make an assignment like a quiz? I wish the different question types were available in the assignment section. Even when I put "assignment" in the title of the "quiz," students are confused. Also, is there a way to organize quizzes like assignments (where groups are possible)?
Solved! Go to Solution.
Because you referred to the "assignment section" I am wondering whether or not you are currently using Modules? If not, that might be a way to reduce the students' confusion. If you had a quiz called "Week One Assignment" in the Week One module, that might be less confusing than if the students had to go to the quizzes tab to find "Week One Assignment."
If Quizzes are 'graded' they automatically become 'Assignments'... the same is true for 'Discussions' that are 'graded', and as Scott mentioned above, you can then arrange any/all of your 'assignments' into assignment groups, and also utilize the settings, controls and prerequisites in Modules. Below are some links to 'Canvas Guides', which can be found under the 'Help' menu in Canvas. These should be helpful...
