New Quizzes- Transition Information

We've been using both Classic Quizzes and New Quizzes with Canvas, our learning management system. Starting July 1, 2023, we are recommending you build your tests and quizzes using New Quizzes.

Why are we changing?

New Quizzes offers more options for questions, has better accommodations and is now ready for use. Not quite sure if you are ready for the change? Read these two articles to learn more:

Can I still use Classic Quizzes? 

Yes, for now you can continue to build in new tests and quizzes in Classic Quizzes. Please watch this page for announcements of the timeline when Classic Quizzes will be sunset and you will need to move to New Quizzes. We will use information from Canvas to make the call.

In a small number of specialized cases, it might be better to stick with Classic Quizzes for the time being. See the New Quizzes FAQ for more information.
