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

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 another 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.) will be 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.

This process is not working for me. When I try to copy the course from my workroom I can see it in the class where I sent it but when I try to open it I get an error that says "Couldn't find valid settings for this link"

@leonaac,

Are you copying a quiz that was created with the New Quizzes tool? If so, does the course that it was copied to have New Quizzes enabled? That may be why you're seeing an error.

I have a teacher that went through this steps but gets an email alerting her that she has broken links.  Should she visit the Course Link Validator or is she doing something wrong in the copy to process?

@beatyg,

That couldn't hurt. You may also want to try the solution Naomi mentioned above to ensure that New Quizzes is enabled in the destination course.

When we move a New Quizzes from one course to another it moves the just the item and title, but it does not have the questions with it. We have followed all of the steps above. What have we missed? 

We have a teacher that is a co-teacher in period 3 & 6, the course and grades are showing in the dashboard, grades, settings & everything other part of Canvas.

In creating a quiz they can only assign it to period 6, they can't send to or copy to the other period 3 that he teaches?

Can someone please help asap?

@crystal_burnett,

If Canvas is not behaving properly, please use the Help menu to reach out to Canvas Support so they can throughly troubleshoot the issue.

@stesmi,

So when following the steps in this lesson, he does not see all the courses that he teaches? And he has an instructor role in both?  I would also suggest using the Help menu to reach out to Canvas Support so they can throughly troubleshoot the issue.
