How to Duplicate a Quiz

Jump to solution

Hi, I have a student that requires different quiz allotted time than the rest of the class due to disability. How do I create a duplicate of the quiz? That way I can assign the quiz with more allotted time only to that student... Thanks!

Hello rsardenberg@nova.edu Welcome to the Canvas Community.  Thanks for posting your message.  Let's have you try these steps:

[NOTE: This is the process for creating a single copy of a quiz. Do not repeat the process, as any subsequent imports will overwrite an existing quiz.]

  1. Log in to your Canvas course.
  2. Click on the "Settings" menu in your course.
  3. Click on the "Import Course Content" button on the right side of your screen.
  4. Under the "Import Content" heading, use the "Content Type" dropdown list to select "Copy a Canvas Course".
  5. Next, select the same course that you are logged into right now.  (You'll probably see a warning message that you're choosing the same course, but that's okay.)
  6. Choose the option for "Select specific content".
  7. Click the "Import" button.
  8. Under the "Current Jobs" heading, you will see a new line with today's date and time along with a "Select Content" button.  Click that button.
  9. You should see a row for "Quizzes" with an arrow to the left of it.  Click that arrow to expand the list of quizzes in your course.
  10. Place a checkmark next to the name of the quiz that you want to make a copy of.
  11. Click the "Select Content" button.

Once the progress bar completes, you can go to your "Quizzes" page in your course, and you should see a duplicate of the quiz.  You should be able to re-name that quiz and make any changes to it that you need.

I hope this helps!

Duplicating a quiz should not be this hard - 10+ steps! Why not a simple "Duplicate" option?

Yes! Please!

Hi Renata,

You can also add time for that one student under the Moderate Quiz once you've saved the quiz. This will allow you to add time and attempts for specific students without having to duplicate.

Thank you!

Suggestions for when an "Available Until" time is set?

This 10+ steps procedure to simply duplicate a quiz question does NOT really solve the issue. Canvas by far has the most ridiculous UI of any web app I used in the last decade. I feel like using something created before 2000. If it is not some kind of monopoly, it should have been bankrupted long time ago.

Would you rather not be able to copy a quiz at all? It's a few extra clicks do something that takes just a few minutes to accomplish. I look forward to seeing your  product that competes with Canvas.
