There are many great updates coming to Quizzes, but unfortunately they will not launch until 2017. What’s different is that quizzes will be created through LTI integration (by creating an assignment).
Some features that our faculty have been requesting will be added:
New features that faculty will find useful
Institutions can try out quizzes.next in beta, but the questions are only available in multiple choice for now. Trial ends August 1.
Will it still be possible to import a quiz from another LMS?
Will we be able to create a quiz off-line and then import into Canvas?
Can we add the honor code feature to all assignments and not just quizzes?
I like the idea of printing out quizzes but they didn't address how you will get the data back into Canvas. Hopefully there will be a way to import student answers.
