Migrating Quizzes and Pools from Bb to Canvas

I thought it might be helpful to share experiences when exporting tests/surveys/pools from Bb to Canvas.
Here is a little of what we've learned and what to watch out for.


  1. In order to prevent quiz issues, all quizzes and pools should be migrated together at one time
  2. Because Hot Spot and Likert questions don't exist in Canvas yet, each quiz/test should be checked to remove  or address these question types.
  3. There are appears to be a problem if hundreds of images used in a Bb test try to import into Canvas. Images stop appearing in questions. This doesn't seem to be a problem with smaller number of images.


Please feel free to share your experiences and/or solutions so we can help each other.
