Students don't see a published Quiz?

Jump to solution

I created a quiz and then published it. One of my colleagues was added to my class as a student so she could see if she could take the quiz. (Taking the quiz on the ipad would only require: downloading the .pdf, working on it in notability, uploading it, and submitting it.)

She could not find the quiz on the student app. She could find it on her computer through the browser. But we don't want them to do it from the computer because it will take more time to do all the steps: download the sheet, send it to themselves, open it on their ipad, send to notability, take the quiz, then send the quiz back to themselves, then go back to the computer save the doc to the desktop, then upload it onto the quiz, and finally submit it. As you can see that is WAY too many steps.

Is there a glitch? Or is the app just limited enough that the students need to use the browser instead? Does anyone have any suggestions for me?

Thanks for any help you can give.

Hi!

 

The Canvas Mobile Team shared that if you swipe left on that view you’ll get the take quiz button. They understand that it's not very unintuitive so they're going fix it so there’s no swiping involved, just the "take quiz" button.

Hi Andrea - What is your colleague's "course role" in your class?

Hi –

They are marked as a student. At first their role was as a teacher but then they couldn’t “take” the quiz. So I changed them back to a student so they could try the quiz as a student. They went into their “Canvas – student app” on the iPad to take the quiz and couldn’t find it…BUT…if they went onto canvas on their desktop/laptop browser they could.

I'm sorry that I don't have an answer for you! Have you reported this to Canvas Support? (How do I get help with Canvas as an instructor?‌)
