Duplicating Quizzes in Canvas

You can make a copy of an assignment in Canvas, but what about a quiz? Thanks to an inquiry from John Brennan, we’ve discovered a workaround to do just that:

  1. ​Go to Settings > Import Course Content
  2. Select your course (what we’re doing is importing the quiz from your course into the same course – thereby creating a copy)
  3. Choose Selected Course Content
  4. Use the select content to choose what you’ll import (copy). You can choose a single quiz or all quizzes.
  5. Run the import
  6. Go to the quiz section of your course. The quiz that is the copy will be the one without any due dates or submissions.
