Attach outcomes to quizzes

Is there a way to attach an outcome to a quiz?

You can align outcomes to a question bank like this: How do I align an outcome with a question bank? 

And if your institution has enabled the new Quizzes.NEXT tool, you can align outcomes to individual quiz questionsHow do I align an outcome to an assessment question in Quizzes.Next?

I have tried both of these and the align outcome option is not available.

I just checked to verify, and the add outcomes to question banks, and the add outcomes to quiz items (Quizzes.Next only) features do not need to be enabled for your institution by your Canvas Admin. Quizzes.Next itself must be enabled by your admin, but not the outcome alignment feature.

You must have outcomes entered into your course or downloaded from account level outcomes for these features to work. If you have outcomes in the course where you tried these functions, I would suggest submitting a support ticket.

You also stated earlier,

"I don't use question banks - i create my own quizzes"

I suspect that you might be assuming that all question banks are from textbook publishers or other external sources. Canvas users can develop their own course-level question banks the old-fashioned (and better) way by writing the question items themselves, then using them to create their own quizzes.  Using large item banks to draw quiz question items from have many advantages, and most especially testing security advantages. You can learn more about improving testing security from this great document created by my friend‌ right here in this Community: .

I hope this is helpful,
