Canvas - Instructure has released the New Quiz tool. We have made it available to choose. The New Quiz offers new features and question types, but is missing many features of the Classic Quiz. The Classic Quiz will remain available in Canvas until the Summer of 2022. When the exact date is provided, this page will be updated.
The New Quiz tool in Canvas is a choice, but before you make that choice - please be aware of ALL the PROS and CONS of the New Quiz.
- Question banks created in the Classic Quiz, can not be directly migrated to the New Quiz. It is important to create question groups that are not linked to an item bank. There is, however, a new item type called a stimulus type that allows a group of questions to be associated with a block of content.
- New Quizzes will not handle multiple attempts, late polices, and "score to keep"
- New Quizzes does not work with 3rd party tools (publishers, TurnItIn, MatLab..).
- New Quiz does NOT use the New RCE that is available throughout your course.
- New Quizzes do not support partial credit questions.
- New Quizzes can not build surveys.
- You can not revert a New Quiz to a Classic Quiz.
Because New Quizzes is in active development, now is the perfect time to provide feedback. If you have experience with New Quizzes, sharing your experiences and suggestions with the greater Canvas community will help shape the tool before the New Quizzes is the only option.
