Canvas for Instructors


The quiz tool in Canvas allows you to assess student's knowledge of course concepts. There are four types of "quizzes" that can be created in Canvas:

Graded Quiz:

  • This is the most common type of quiz. Creating a graded quiz automatically creates a column in the gradebook. Questions that have a predetermined answer will be automatically graded.

Practice Quiz:

  • Similar to a graded quiz except that the quiz does not add an entry in the gradebook.

Graded Survey:

  • This option lets you solicit opinions and comments from students but they are not given a grade for answering.

Ungraded Survey:

  • This option allows instructors to give points for completing the survey but will not let you grade on right/wrong answers.
