Quizzes in Canvas are assignments that can be used to challenge student understanding and assess comprehension of course material. The quiz tool is used to create and administer online quizzes and surveys.
The Quizzes link on the left will display the quizzes in the course. They can be linked from other sections such as Modules or Assignments too, but the actual quiz is sources under the Quizzes link.
Instructors can select a quiz to view the settings on it, such as type of the quiz (graded/non-graded, etc), points allocated, timed test, multiple attempts allowed, one question at a time, and more.
If an instructor chooses to take the quiz and experience it as a student, they can do this in two ways. First by clicking on the Preview button inside the quiz lets them take the quiz-
Or second, by selecting the Student View button on the course home page which lets them view the course the same way as student does.
Instructors can click on the options to view student quiz results. The view will display the student names who have taken the quiz so far, at the top of the page. It will also list the student names that haven’t taken the quiz yet. Selecting a student name will then take them to their attempt page. This page displays all the important details of the student attempt, such as the timestamp of submission, number of attempts and time taken on each attempt, score received, etc.
The instructor can also choose to manually adjust the score by adding positive or negative points in the Fudge Points box down below on the student’s attempt page. Submitting the change will update the total points received for the students on the attempt of the quiz.
The quiz sidebar shows the Moderate Quiz link, which allows the instructor to moderate the quiz for each student in the course. On the Moderate Quiz page, the instructor can view the progress of student submissions and view the number of quiz attempts each has taken. They can also grant students extra attempts, grant extra time for timed quizzes, and manually unlock quiz attempts.
