Classic Quizzes

Classic Quizzes is Canvas' first quiz feature that is currently being replaced by New Quizzes. If you are already familiar with its functionality, you can continue to use it, but if you are going to learn a quiz function from scratch, it is recommended that you devote your time to New Quizzes. At the moment, however, this is the better choice if you need data security using third-party tools or CSV for student response analysis.

You can navigate to the pages on Classic Quizzes in the navigation menu or click on the links under each heading.
