Last updated on November 4, 2021

Note: This tutorial is currently being updated. In the meantime, the video contains instructions for both Classic and New Quizzes.

Canvas provides a multitude of assessment tools that allow for feedback on both the student and instructor end. One of these tools is the quizzes function which allows you to create multiple choice, true/false, and essay questions, among several others. When creating quizzes for your class, you may find that you want to provide students with feedback in order to better guide learning and allow for self-reflection.
