How do I add bonus questions to quizzes?
Hi Gina Noble Welcome to the Canvas Community!
This can easily be done by adding a zero-point item in the quiz, then hand-grading it for the desired point value. I do this on every exam as an extra credit item, and I use an essay question item type.
Luckily, when grading with SpeedGrader, you can go from student-to=-student with the focus remaining on that item.
Why would I hand grade a class of 100? I’m using Canvas so I don’t have to hand grade. Fix it.

We use Canvas so we don’t have to grade every quiz or exam, especially in huge classes. Please don’t ask me to add extra work to my load when I’m using Canvas, especially when other programs of this caliber provide the feature.
Sorry, Gina Noble !
I don't make Canvas, am not on the engineering team and am not even a real employee of the company - just a humble Community Coach telling you how the system actually works.

Thanks for your help and for the clarification, Kelley. Much appreciated.
Howdy Gina Noble,
Thanks for your question. To add an extra credit question to a quiz, you would make it worth 0 points. Then after students have completed the quiz, you would manually grade that extra credit question scoring with the amount of "extra" points you want to award. Another way that you can provide extra credit is through fudge points. To read more about fudge points: How do I adjust the point value for an entire quiz using fudge points in SpeedGrader?
Hope that helps.
