Printing a Quiz

Jump to solution

In our K-8 schools, we have students who need their tests read aloud by aides.  Since aides are not teachers in our courses (and we choose not to allow them that access), we are in need of printed copies of our Canvas quizzes for the aides to read while the student is taking their quiz on Canvas.  Can anyone help us with printing a copy of a Canvas quiz?  Are there any options for exporting to ExamView?  We cannot print 10 pages for a quiz that really should print as 1.

THANK YOU!

You're not the only one who's asked this! (Printing a Quiz) It's a great question.

I'll copy my answer here too! Smiley Happy

Printing quizzes can be a "messy" process. When you print from the browser, I know that the quiz can be broken in strange places. My colleagues and I have also tried the copy/paste method. It's time-consuming, and the formatting isn't always consistent. It works, but you definitely have to plan ahead. I also have some colleagues who write all of their questions in a Google Doc and then copy/paste them into Canvas Question Banks. That way, they have the original quiz elsewhere and it's easy to print.

If you are the Canvas Admin, or you have the ability to collaborate with them, my school has had luck with this wonderful resource that Chad Scott shared in Print Canvas Quizzes UserScript. We've absolutely loved having this option, especially when we need paper tests/quizzes for students who have accommodations or simply as a back-up. Other people have used G.Petruzella@mcla.edu‌'s solution he shared in Printable Quizzes code-snippet.

You can also install that script just in your own browser rather than in your school's Canvas instance by using the TamperMonkey browser extension. I've done that with lots of scripts that I've wanted to use, and you don't need any particular permissions in Canvas to do that since it's modifying your local copy of the page after it's already downloaded from the server.

I preview the quiz and then print that page. It’s worked well for me.
