Classic Quizzes is Canvas' first quiz feature that is currently being replaced by New Quizzes. If you use Classic Quiz today, it’s time to migrate your quizzes to the new quiz feature, “New Quizzes”. At the moment, however, this is the better choice if you need to export CSV-files for student response analysis or if you are using an API.
You can navigate to the pages on Classic Quizzes in the navigation menu or click on the links under each heading.
On this page, we have collected guides on the question types in Canvas Classic Quizzes.
