You can view quizzes in your course by accessing the Quizzes page. Learn how to view each type of quiz that may appear in your course.
Note: Your instructor may choose to hide the Quizzes link in Course Navigation. If the Quizzes link is not available, you can still access Quizzes through other areas of Canvas.
In Course Navigation, click the Quizzes link.
Quizzes are identified by the quiz icon .
In the Quiz Index Page, you can view the name of each quiz , the availability dates for the quiz , the due date for the quiz , the number of points the quiz is worth , and the number of questions in the quiz .
Quizzes are ordered by due date. Some quizzes may not include a due date.
The first dates you may see are called availability dates. Sometimes your instructor only wants you to submit a quiz during a specified date range, so the available dates are the range of time that the quiz is accessible to you.
If you start a quiz but do not submit it, Quizzes includes an autosubmit feature that will submit the quiz for you on the Available until quiz date. If a quiz does not include an Available until date, the quiz will autosubmit on the last day of the course.
Note: If a date does not include a time, the listed date defaults to 12 am. Therefore, the last day for the quiz is the full day before the listed date. For instance, if a quiz is Available until August 22, you can access the quiz until August 21 at 11:59 pm, which in this example is the same date as the Due date.
The second set of dates are the Due dates  for each respective quiz. Any quizzes submitted after the due date are marked as late; some instructors may deduct points for late submissions. Again, not all quizzes may include a Due date.
You can still submit late quizzes before the quiz Available until date (otherwise the quiz will be autosubmitted for you).
Please be aware that the Due date may be before or on the Available date.
Due dates also include a time . If your instructor does not set a specific time, the quiz due time defaults to 11:59 pm and submissions will be late if submitted after 11:59:59 pm.
You can search for a quiz by typing a quiz title or a keyword in the Search for Quiz field.
To view the details of a quiz, click the name of the quiz.
When a quiz is open to you to take at any time, you can view the due date, points, and questions for the quiz.
You can also view additional details:
In the example above, the quiz is due by September 15. However, if you were to miss the due date, you could still take the quiz for late credit before the last day of the course.
To take the quiz, click the Take the Quiz button.
When a quiz is open to you during availability dates, you can view all available quiz information in addition to the specific dates the quiz is available to you. Availability dates may include a first available date (open date), last available date (locked or closed), or both dates to create an overall date range. The Due date may be before or on the last available date (if one is set).
In the example above, the quiz is available to you starting April 8 at 12 am and is due by April 9 at 11:59 pm. However, if you were to miss the due date, you could still take the quiz until April 10 at 11:59 pm for late credit. If you do not submit the quiz by the last available date of April 10 at 11:59 pm (as indicated in your local time zone), Canvas will automatically submit the quiz on the last available date. On April 11 at 12 am, the quiz will not be available to you.
Note: Quiz details do not show due and availability dates in relation to the current time. For example, if a quiz has an Until date of 11:59 pm and you begin the quiz at 11:30 pm, you will only have 30 minutes to complete the quiz. The same time restriction applies if you are taking a timed quiz. For example, if the Time Limit was set to 60 minutes but you begin the quiz at 11:30 pm, you still only have 30 minutes to complete the quiz. Canvas will notify you regarding any time restrictions when you begin the quiz.
When a quiz is locked, you can view all details of the quiz. You can also view the date when you can take the quiz.
When a quiz is closed, you can view all details of the quiz. You can also view the date the quiz was locked to submissions.
