How do I migrate a Canvas quiz to New Quizzes?

You can migrate a quiz from Classic Quizzes to be used in New Quizzes.

You can also migrate a survey from Classic Quizzes to New Quizzes. However, the survey will be migrated as a standard quiz as New Quizzes does not include a survey feature.

While New Quizzes migration supports all question types, you should still review your quizzes before assigning them to students.

Notes: 

  • After migration to New Quizzes, multiple dropdown questions display as matching questions.
  • Question banks cannot be imported into New Quizzes as item banks. However, you can import questions manually into an item bank by exporting a Canvas quiz.
