How do I edit a quiz in New Quizzes?

After you have created a New Quizzes quiz, you can edit the quiz from the Build page. This lessons shows how to edit the title, instructions, and individual questions in a quiz. You can also manage delivery settings in New Quizzes.

To edit the point total, assignment group, due date, availability dates, and individual students and course sections who will receive the quiz, you need to edit the quiz from the Assignments Page in Canvas.

If you edit a New Quizzes quiz after students have taken the quiz, you will be prompted to edit a copy of the question you're editing. If you edit a copy of the question, Canvas will create a new version of the question only visible to students who have not yet taken the quiz or who have additional attempts.
