In the module is a quiz template that I need to duplicate before using.
Hello there, Beth Barkley...
I have been reviewing older questions here in the Canvas Community, and I stumbled upon your question. I am sorry to see that your question has been sitting here unanswered for five months without a response. As I understand it, you have a quiz set up in your course as a "template", and it currently lives in one of your modules of the course. You'd like to make a duplicate copy of this quiz, but there isn't a "Duplicate" option like there is for other content such as pages, assignments, and discussion topics. Let's see if we can remedy this for you.
The way to duplicate a quiz right now is to use the Course Import Tool following these instructions:
Once you have done all this, you should have a duplicate of your quiz template that you can modify, and it won't affect the original template. Here is a Guide that walks you through much of what I've provided above (but not necessarily about copying content into the same course): How do I select specific content as part of a course import?
I hope this information will be of help to you, Beth. Please let the Community know if you have any additional questions about this...thanks!
Hi again, Beth Barkley...
I wanted to check in with you again because I noticed that we've not heard back from you since you first posted your question on September 10, 2018. I had replied to you this past February, but I'm not sure if you've had an opportunity to review the feedback I provided since then. If you could, please take a few minutes to review the above posting from me. And, if it helps to answer your question, please click the "Mark Correct" button next to that response. However, if you're still looking for some assistance with this question, please come back to this topic and post a message below letting Community members know how we might be able to assist you. For now, I am going to mark your question as "Assumed Answered" because we've not heard back from you and because there hasn't been any new activity in this topic for a few months. However, that won't prevent you or others from posting additional questions and/or comments below that are related to this topic. I hope that's okay with you, Beth. Looking forward to hearing back from you soon.
Hi Chris, Thanks for helping out with the above, because I had this question today. The problem is, the course I'm trying to copy (and the course that I'm currently in) doesn't show up as an option for a course copy! It's a development shell, but it is published, and my other development shells come up - just not the one I'm working in. It's super annoying because I'm trying to duplicate a quiz, and can't. Any changes that I make to the quiz template are now reflected on the actual quiz. This means I won't be able to make any more quizzes for the class. Help, please!
DR WHALEN, greetings! I recently helped a faculty member with this type of question and what I recommended and what I believe should work for you as well is to download the quiz and then re-upload it into the same course.
This guide explains how to export your quiz - How do I export quiz content from a course?
Then take the quiz export file and re-upload it into the same course - How do I import a Canvas course export package?
Hope this helps! Kona
