NOTICE: Classic Quizzes is currently the default tool enabled in all Canvas courses. Faculty do have the ability to enable the New Quizzes feature within their own courses. Beginning July 2022, tentatively, New Quizzes will become the default quizzing option. While anything previously created in Classic Quizzes will still be available, instructors will only be able to create a new quiz using the New Quizzes platform.
Note: Some features may not be enabled in the VCU Canvas instance.
New Quizzes is an assessment engine that integrates with Canvas as an LTI tool and replaces the classic quizzes functionality currently or previously existing in Canvas.
Instructors can use New Quizzes to create assessments using a variety of questions types. New Quizzes assessments display as assignments in the Assignments page and can be duplicated. Students can take New Quizzes assessments within their Canvas courses.
New Quizzes reports, statistics, item bank search, and item bank tagging are not supported in the Canvas beta environment. Outcomes added to Canvas in the beta environment after the beta refresh will not display in the New Quizzes beta environment. Outcomes must be added to the production environment to display in the beta environment.
New Quizzes cannot be used in the Canvas test environment.
Instructors can use New Quizzes to build assessments with several item types that measure student competency in a variety of subjects. Assessments can be modified using various assessment settings and aligned to outcomes at the assessment or question level.
Instructors can moderate student attempts and review students' answers.
New Quizzes includes assessment reports for admins and instructors to view student performance, including mastery of learning outcomes.
