  • When a student views a timed quiz and time expires, Canvas auto-submits the quiz. However, if a student navigates away from the quiz page, the quiz submission remains outstanding. On the Moderate Quiz page, Canvas generates a warning message about the outstanding submission. This lesson shows you how to submit any outstanding submissions for a quiz at one time.

    Note: Untimed quizzes cannot be submitted manually. Untimed attempts will remain active until the availability date has passed, at which point the quiz will be submitted automatically.

  • You can create a quiz using a Question Group linked to a Question Bank.

    When you link a Question Bank to a Question Group, you will see all of the Question Banks that you have built in the same course, and those you have bookmarked in other courses where you are the Instructor. You will also see Question Banks that have been added by your administrator to your sub-account, which makes it easy for instructors in the same department or program to share resources.

    Canvas will reference your chosen bank of questions as each student takes the quiz. Each student will get a random number of questions pulled from the bank. For instance, if you want to use questions from the English Department and they have 7 questions in their Question Bank, but you only want the Question Group to display 2 questions, Canvas will randomly pull 2 of the 7 questions as each student takes the quiz.

    If you need your questions to appear in a specific order, you should add individual questions or find questions instead of creating a question group.

    Notes:

    • When linking a question bank to a quiz, be sure to make changes within the question bank before the quiz is available to take. Although you can make changes to the question bank after a quiz is published, students who have already opened or completed the quiz will not see any of the changes, which may affect their grades. Students who begin their quiz after the changes are made will see your updates.
    • Questions that are linked to a Question Bank cannot be regraded since they may be used in more than one quiz.
  • You can create a quiz by finding questions from Question Banks.

    When you find questions in a Question Bank, you will see all of the Question Banks that you have built in other courses where you are the Instructor. You will also see Question Banks that have been added by your administrator to your sub-account, which makes it easy for instructors in the same department or program to share resources.

    Canvas will reference the questions you choose as each student takes the quiz. These questions will stay in sequential order and stay in order each time the quiz is taken or previewed. If you want to randomize quiz questions, you can add them to a question group.

    Note: When you Find Questions in a question bank, changes made to questions in the question bank will not update in the quiz. Changes will update in the quiz only if the questions are linked to a question bank.

  • You can create a quiz using a question group. Question groups allow you to place multiple questions within a group for students to answer. You can choose the number of questions that should be answered from the group and how many points to assign each question. Creating a question group randomizes questions within a quiz.

    You can add questions to your question group in several ways:

    • Link to a question bank to reference all questions in a question bank
    • Add an individual question to create your own questions from scratch
    • Find questions to reference specific questions from a question bank

    Note: If you need your questions to appear in a specific order, do not place quiz questions inside a question group.
