In Canvas Studio quiz questions, is there a way to add images or equations?

Jump to solution

I am having trouble writing good math questions in Canvas Studio quizzes because there does not seem to be any sort of editor that allows me to add images or equations. Using alt-code characters helps a bit, but that option is not a full solution. 

Note: Canvas Studio is an add-on product that is separate from Quizzes.

Hi elad33@khsd.k12.ca.us...

We also have Studio, and it doesn't look like there are any options to add images or equations to the quiz questions you can add on top of your Studio videos.  It looks like you can only use normal text ... as there really isn't a Rich Content Editor (RCE) available in the Studio interface.  You might want to consider submitting that as a Feature Idea, though.  Here are some documents to look through:

I know this might not be the answer you were looking for, but I hope it helps to answer your question.

I would not regard this question solved at all... Rather the question should be:

WHY isn't it possible to include equations in Canvas Studio Quizzes - if all other quiz-functions and editors within Canvas support some kind of math-markup?

For me and my topics Quizzes without math-markup are useless.

It should not be necessary to submit a suggestion - the need should have been obvious for the developers from the start and the implementation trivial with all tools already available.

...or formulated slightly differently:

Why does a single platform like Canvas need three (3!) different quiz-engines?

  • the "old" quizzes with a solid engine and a well functioning API (without documentation)
  • the "new" quizzes with a nicer user interface, more functionality, but shaky implementation and no API
  • the "studio" quizzes without anything of the above
