Are correct answers on Canvas quizzes always at the first choice?

Jump to solution

I have been using Canvas to create multiple choice quizzes, but I see something wrong; whenever I preview the quizzes, the correct option is always the first one. I have done several previews for several quizzes.

 

Do the choices actually get mixed up when they reach the students? If not, how can I make sure they are?

 

Thank you.

Hello @Green_Leaf  It seems lots of people get confused by this.  That little green arrow that indicates the correct answer does not need to be choice A.

You actually are suppose to click to select which of your answers is correct, not leave it as A every time.  The other option would be when you setup your quiz/exam is to have the shuffle answers box checked.  Otherwise, yes, all of them will be choice A if that is where you enter the correct answer.

Hope this helps!
