How do I view Quizzes in the Canvas app on my iOS device?
Canvas lets you view Quizzes from your mobile device. For each quiz, you can view the details of the quiz including the due date, points, number of questions, the time limit, and number of allowed attempts.
The Canvas app natively supports quizzes that contain Essay, Multiple Choice, Multiple Answer, Fill in the Blank, Matching, Numeric, or True/False questions. Any quizzes that do not contain supported question types are 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.
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.
