Quizzes.Next should work with Lockdown Browser or Proctorio


Quizzes.Next needs to allow us to require Lockdown Browser or Proctorio to take the Quiz we make in that feature. I can't use this feature without either. 

This idea has been developed and is On Canvas Beta How do I access the Canvas beta environment?

For more information, please read through the

I have stayed in old quizzes precisely because lockdown browser and proctorio are not yet options in new quizzes.  A tedious, but possible, solution for your quizzes is to open your new quiz in one window and add an old quiz to the course open in another window.  Then copy and paste questions and answers from new to old.  It's annoyingly tedious, but you can create all the old quizzes as blanks with no questions and availability dates that only open when students are supposed to access them, and spend the summer semester copying and pasting the questions back one quiz at a time before the quiz opens to students.  Canvas does seem to have added this to their "in development" stage, which does seem to make steady progress towards completion.

The inability to hide results is a separate issue that needs to be addressed, and it is especially concerning that teachers will be "fooled" into thinking results are hidden that are still visible to students who are taking later assessments.  Have you added an idea to address this in new quizzes?

I brought up what I believe is the same issue here. Let me know if you find a feature request I can vote for.

A group of academic technologists met in February to discuss new quizzes.  Here were are dealbreakers that are keeping us from using New Quizzes.  Percents are the results when we asked the ATs to pick three that were dealbreakers for them  

  • Too hard to manually grade questions - 64%
  • Can’t migrate question banks from classic quiz- 60%
  • No proctoring - 52%
  • Can’t export student results to CSV - 34%
  • Can’t add images/files from Canvas to questions - 20%

If the dealbreakers don't stop you, here are some of the goodies you get:

  • Questions added to Item Banks & edited in Item Banks are reflected wherever the question occurs
  • Set point values for individual answers
  • Scale the overall quiz scores
  • Restrict-student-results view is more granular
  • Set student accommodation at the course level
  • Attach instructions to a group of questions
  • More question types

I believe this idea (that's open for voting) is what you all are talking about. 


I actually spoke to my CSM about this issue.  I was told that the reason this has not happened yet, is because Quizzes Next is considered to be in Beta mode.  Eventually, it will be supported by Lockdown Browser and I imagine Proctorio as well.

I like to keep my eye on other LMS. I notice that Neo has recently added Lockdown Browser to their quiz engine. Whilst they don't have a new quiz engine, it appears the developments happened quite quickly. If this is a reason then I am also hoping that we will also see full functionality and parity with the current Quiz tool when it comes out of beta!


I think and hoping we will.  Smiley Happy
