Hi Beryl Solla...
Thanks for the additional information. By chance, do the interfaces of both of your quizzes look different? If so, I wonder if your school is using both the old Quizzes interface and also the new Quizzes.Next interface. The old Quizzes interface will have the rocket ship icon. With the the new Quizzes.Next interface, those kinds of quizzes are technically created via the Assignments page and not the Quizzes page. So, it would have the pencil and paper icon.
Hello Beryl Solla Welcome to the Canvas Community. Thanks for posting your question. Please refer to this discussion topic which was just asked two days ago about the rocket ship icon: Rocket Ship Icon assignment. The other icon you see (the pencil and paper) designates an assignment in Canvas. Even though it is possible that the instructor for your course has given the name of a quiz alongside that pencil and paper icon, it really is an assignment. Both assignments and quizzes are typically graded in a course. Quizzes have things like multiple choice and true/false questions. Assignments are more for submitting work like essay papers, presentations, video submissions, etc. I hope this helps to clarify things.
I am the teacher. I still don't know the answer. I have two tests in the course, both entered the same but each has a different icon.
My school is new to Canvas and I created both modules within the same week.
Modules are the content organizing tools which would house you quizzes as well as all other content asscoiated with a specific module.
What Chris Hofer is referencing are the two methods or tools that can be used to create a quiz in Canvas. The first is the legacy quizzing tool simply called Quizzes. Quizzes are their own item type in Canvas and are identifed by the rocket ship icon. You can learn more about quizzes in the Quizzes chapter of the Instructor Guide.
Quizzes.Next is the new quizzing tool that is slowly (very slowly) being phased in. Quizzes.Next is actually an LTI and the q7uizzes are built in Assignments which use the paper and pencil icon.
And yes, many schools are currently using both tools, making it quite possible to have both types in the same course.
Check out the guides for these two tools for a better understanding.
