How do I take a quiz in the Canvas app on my iOS device?
You can take a quiz on your mobile device.
This lesson shows native quiz viewing in the Canvas app. If your quiz contains Essay, Multiple Choice, Multiple Answer, Multiple Dropdown, File Upload, Fill in the Blank, Matching, Numeric, or True/False questions, you can view the quiz questions natively for an enhanced user experience.
Any quizzes that do not contain supported question types will be redirected to the web version of Canvas. Additionally, currently the app does not support one-question-at-a-time quizzes, quizzes with passcode restrictions, or quizzes with IP address restrictions.
You can easily skip to another question or flag a question in the app. For timed quizzes, the app allows you to turn the timer on and off.
When you are finished, you may be able to view your quiz results in the browser version of Canvas.
The images in this lesson are shown for a phone display, but unless otherwise noted, tablet displays mirror the same steps.
Note: The Course Navigation menu matches the browser version of your Canvas course. If you are a student and Quizzes is not available in Course Navigation, it will also be hidden from view in the app.
