How do I migrate a Canvas quiz to New Quizzes?

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

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


  • After migration to New Quizzes, multiple dropdown questions display as matching questions.
  • Migrating question groups to New Quizzes is not supported.
  • Quiz migration is an account-level feature option. If you are an instructor and cannot view this feature, contact your institution's Canvas Admin. If you are a Canvas Admin and need assistance enabling this feature, contact your Customer Success Manager.
