How do I copy a quiz to another course in New Quizzes?

Find your school's Canvas URL

To find your school or institution's Canvas URL, begin typing the name of your school/institution. Results will appear after you type at least 3 characters. For best results be as specific as possible. If you can't find your school, try using any part of your school's name or searching for your school district or state. You may also need to search for the school using the acronym or full name, for example "USU" and "Utah State University".

How do I copy a quiz to another course in New Quizzes?

As an instructor, you can copy individual new quizzes in one course directly into any active course in which you are enrolled as an instructor. You can also send new quizzes to other instructors at your institution. When you copy a new quiz, any assets within that quiz (images, files, etc.) are included in the file copy.

Notes:

  • To share course content, you must have the Course Content - add / edit / delete permission enabled.
  • Shared content does not count against course or user quotas.
  • To import changes to a New Quizzes quiz, you must duplicate the quiz and then import the new quiz into your course.
