Feature Workflow

Quizzes using the New Quizzes assessment engine are created in the same location as Classic Quizzes. However, instead of building the quiz questions directly within the quiz, New Quizzes are directed to a quiz builder outside the quiz shell.

Question Types

Instructors can use New Quizzes to build quizzes with several item types that measure student competency in a variety of subjects. Quizzes can be modified using various quiz settings and aligned to outcomes at the quiz or question level.

New Quizzes display as assignments in the Assignments page and can be duplicated. Students can take New Quizzes quizzes within their Canvas courses.
