New Quizzes has a bug. The new workflow takes you to the assignment details page, but this page is missing navigation to edit or preview the quiz questions from the instructor view. See image below:
I posted in the comments here https://community.canvaslms.com/t5/Releases/Canvas-Release-Notes-2021-03-20/ta-p/446668.
So far, we have to either select "Save" or edit the URL of the quiz details page to remove “edit?quiz_lti”, in order to get to the New Quizzes builder UI.
Thank you for posting this and your clear images. I was under the impression that this was already a big topic in the community and that Instructure had a fix planned, but I found your comments and some other in the comments for the Release Notes, that's all. Maybe others have filed bug reports to Instructure directly?
This was a very unfortunate update that involved one line in the release notes, that could easiliy be missed. Although there is a way to reach the actual New Quiz by pressing Save (not very intuitive) and it's a good idéa to have similar workflows with Classic Quiz, there are some elements clearly missing to this puzzle.
All the best,

@rolfis Yes, I was not sure if there are certain circumstances where this happens. We don't have New Quizzes enabled on all our subaccounts, so this has only affected a few of our faculty. Our bug report is still pending with Canvas help desk.
Another work-around is to access the New Quiz from the gradebook column view. It goes straight to the builder view vs the details page.
I had a teacher come to me with this problem the other day as well. They had figured out the problem to an extent by hitting the "Save" button, but I also informed them that one other option would be to go through the Gradebook. It appears that this must have come as a result of the way that New Quizzes can be added to modules now as opposed to being found in Assignments. That is the only thing I can figure. Being able to add a New Quiz to a module as a placeholder as opposed to having previously created the quiz is nice, and the designation of it being classic or new is helpful, but seems to have surprised a few individuals as to the funcationality of clicking on a link in the module.
