New Quizzes Timeline Overview

New Quizzes Timeline Overview

As of 2020-10-15, the New Quizzes timeline has been adjusted as a result of educational challenges from COVID-19. The Timeline will continue to be updated with further details when available.


Initially available to all paid accounts in 2018, New Quizzes was designed to be the new assessment engine for Canvas. 

Milestone Dates

Q2–Q4 2020

  • Critical Capability Development: The Quizzes team completes high-impact improvements prioritized before Classic Quizzes deprecation.


  • Course Copy/Import Content Migration: Admins and instructors can import and copy assessment content as New Quizzes.
  • New Quizzes Enforcement: New Quizzes will be enabled for all courses in paid accounts. Both New Quizzes and Classic Quizzes can be used in tandem.

Additional dates will be updated when available

Please fix the partial credit issues people have been begging for since the new quiz release before this forced change. The system should be able to award partial credit for categorization questions, matching questions and ordering questions. It is extremely frustrating to be forced to use a quiz format that does not have these functions.  

Can you please provide the new date for when the “Prevent quiz create-Prevent student attempt/submit” event on your timeline will occur? Our institution needs this information so we can plan our migration. Thank you.

Can we get an update on when the export Student Analysis item will be available?
