How do I migrate a Canvas quiz to Quizzes.Next?

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


  • After migration to Quizzes.Next, multiple dropdown questions display as matching questions.
  • Question groups linked to question banks will not migrate to Quizzes.Next.
  • 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.
