How do I view quiz results as a student?
Quiz results are easy to read in Canvas. As a student, you can see different types of quiz results, depending on your instructor's preference.
Note: Your instructor may be using an upgraded quiz tool called New Quizzes in your course. If the quiz you are accessing displays a shaded quiz icon, your instructor is using New Quizzes. Functionality may differ between these quiz types. For help with quiz results, please see How do I view my assessment results as a student in New Quizzes?.
In Course Navigation, click the Quizzes link.
Click the title of the quiz.
