If I build a short answer quiz, can I export the data in a CSV?
Kym, Canvas doesn't actually have short answer questions, but if you're talking about essay questions (which are technically the same thing) then yes you can download the responses as a .csv file. Once the students take the quiz you can click on "Quiz Statistics" (button on the right side of the page) and then you would want to generate a "Student Analysis" report. This creates a CSV file (by student) of everything the students answered for the quiz.
Can I pull all of the students into one CSV file? Or does it have to be by student only?
Sorry for not clarifying - what I meant by "by student" was that each row on the CSV file is a different student. So yes, you get all student responses to all questions on a quiz on one CSV file.
Is there actually a way to download that CSV file for student analysis and answers from api call?
N'Guessan Yves-Alain Akanza, you'd want to ask that question over in the Canvas Developers group in the Community. They're the ones that do back-end stuff like that.
