It seems that a teacher should be able to get to this page from inside the New Quizzes editing tool.  You shouldn't have to exit out of the editor, then click on Edit from within the Quizzes lists to get to this page.

 

FURTHER, you have to know to click on "Edit" from the three dots, rather than just clicking on the name of the quiz.   Why can't there be multiple ways to get to the same screen?

Hi @rmariucci,

We have a feature idea that suggests updating how/where to access the Edit Quiz page: Access More Options Page for New Quizzes More Easily. If you'd like to support that idea, you can kudo it and/or add comments.
