When migrating a Classic Quiz to New Quiz with the Migrate button the following issues happen:

Permission and usage rights are not applied to migrated Course Content.

User audio/video URL’s corrupted.

Course Documents and Course Links URL is pointing to some random location.

Expected Behavior

No workaround exists at this time.

  2. Add 1 question
  3. Add rich content: images, videos, links, docs
  4. Click the Migrate button
