What types of Quizzes are in Canvas?
Canvas has four different types of quizzes:
- A graded quiz is the most common quiz, and Canvas automatically creates a column in the Gradebook for any graded quizzes you build.
- A practice quiz is ungraded and can be used as a learning tool to help students see how well they understand the course material. Practice quizzes do not appear in the syllabus or Gradebook.
- A graded survey allows you to give students points for completing the survey; however, it is not graded based on right or wrong answers.
- An ungraded survey allows you to obtain opinions or other information from students; however, students do not receive a grade for their responses. Ungraded surveys do not appear in the syllabus or Gradebook.
