Canvas New Releases brought a few changes to New Quizzes this weekend. The first is that you can now create it on the Quizzes tab. Selecting +Quiz gives you the ability to choose to create a Classic Quiz (native Canvas quiz tool) or a New Quiz. New Quizzes are also now displayed as a solid rocketship icon. Watch this short video to see this in action.
It’s that time when you want to ensure your Canvas Gradebook is set up correctly. Use this checklist to ensure your Canvas Gradebook is accurate. It is better than having to do a grade change later!
