How do I edit a quiz 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 edit a quiz in New Quizzes?

After you have created a New Quizzes quiz, you can edit the quiz from the Build page. This lessons shows how to edit the title, instructions, and individual questions in a quiz. You can also manage delivery settings in New Quizzes.

To edit the point total, assignment group, due date, availability dates, and individual students and course sections who will receive the quiz, you need to edit the quiz from the Assignments Page in Canvas.

If you edit a New Quizzes quiz after students have taken the quiz, you will be prompted to edit a copy of the question you're editing. If you edit a copy of the question, Canvas will create a new version of the question only visible to students who have not yet taken the quiz or who have additional attempts.
