I am new to Canvas--I keep searching the guides but can not find how when I key a quiz in one class section--how do I have the same quiz pop up in another section?
I think you'll need to import the content from the course where the quiz currently resides, into the course where you would like it assigned. Here is a relevant guide:
How do I copy content from another Canvas course?
We have many teachers who create "master courses" for themselves or for grade level teams. They build out all of the content for the year ahead of time and import as needed throughout the school year. Be sure to choose "select specific content" when copying the course, then select the quiz you would like to bring over.
Like Brian said above, by going into settings for your course and then clicking the "Import Content Into This Course" would be an easy solution. (I do this a couple times a semester with vocabulary, and then I adjust the quizzes to match each course's specific objectives.)
Does your institution have Canvas Commons enabled? If so, you could save a copy of your quiz to your institution's Commons, and then insert it into othe courses.
Thank you, I have been able to export specific content from one course to another. I tried saving the quiz to Commons and clicked to be seen by me but I could never find the quiz. We do have commons available but could not locate the quiz I exported.
Jennifer, we're glad to know that the export/import process worked for you. If you're having a specific problem with finding your content in Commons, please submit a ticket to Canvas Support using the Report a Problem option from your Help menu; they'll be happy to check it out for you.
