New Quizzes

New Quizzes is Canvas' newer quiz feature. Some parts are still under development while others are better than in Classic Quizzes. New Quizzes have more question types and more moderation and external setting features. It is easier to share material between teachers and to handle questions in item banks. In the future, this will be the only quiz tool in Canvas.
