Is there any way to print a hard copy of a quiz created in Canvas?
KRISTINA, I just performed these steps in Firefox 40.0.2. Steps and results will vary, depending on the browser you're using.
Here's another way. The quiz must be published and available, and must reside in a published module, to use this method.
When you're done, remember to leave Student View by clicking on the blue button at the lower right of the screen.
Since this functionality is of interest to you, you might want to add your feedback to the Feature Idea which is currently in the information-gathering stage: Printable / PDF-exportable quizzes
KRISTINA, there is currently a feature request for this that is in the "gathering info" stage but you can still go vote for it and share your thoughts on use cases, etc. Printable / PDF-exportable quizzes
Right now, the only thing of which I can think, would be to take screenshots and print those out which could get untenable for very large quizzes and would not necessarily work if the questions come from a linked question bank.
Mark, great point about the linked question bank! I noticed that the commentary on the feature idea implies that this might remain a limitation even if the feature idea is implemented. The same limitation would apply if the quiz is designed using question groups; previewing the quiz would only select the requested sampling of the questions in the group. Having said that, a printed quiz is a static solution that by its nature doesn't accommodate question randomization, one-at-a-time question delivery, answer shuffling, or any of the other dynamic features afforded by online quizzes--so I would imagine if KRISTINA MILLER or any other teacher needs to administer a printed quiz, the quiz would have to first be created in Canvas without any of the bells and whistles.
Stefanie, thanks for that additional information. That's a tricky situation for sure. Perhaps the easiest way around this would be to design the quiz in Word and use Respondus to upload the quiz into Canvas so that rather than starting from Canvas and working to a print out, the quiz would be in a printable form first before being put in Canvas and edited.
Respondus....the solution to so many questions about quizzes.
Just to put a twist on your Respondus technique, we have had pretty good success with exporting a quiz built in Canvas (How do I export quiz content from my course?) and then loading that export file into Respondus to generate a printable version. The exact steps escape me at the moment but if anyone needs them I will try to find my documentation later.
