Information and Technology Services (ITS) has begun the process of migrating from “Classic Quizzes” to “New Quizzes” for U-M Canvas.
As an initial step in this process, New Quizzes will be activated for all U-M Canvas sites starting Monday, December 6, 2021. This means that faculty and staff will see an option allowing them to select between New and Classic Quizzes on their individual Canvas sites.
Some features offered with New Quizzes include:
- New questions types, such as ordering and categorization
- New quiz settings, including duplicating question types and question shuffling
- Align questions to Outcomes
- Print assessments, and save them as PDF files
This addition comes as ITS plans for the ultimate retirement of Classic Quizzes from U-M Canvas. Beginning May 2023, individuals will no longer be able to create Classic Quizzes. Instructure will retire Classic Quizzes entirely in June 2024.
