Scenario:

In Canvas quizzes you as a lecturer can:



Printing a Blank Version

To print a blank version of your quiz, complete the following steps.

  1. Open the relevant quiz.

  2. Click Build.

  3. Click the options icon (⋮).

  4. Select Print Blank Quiz

  5. Select a printed text font size.

  6. Optional: Select the Remember text size setting checkbox to remember text size setting.

  7. Click Print Preview.

  8. With your printer view open, print the document or save it as a PDF.


Note:

  • If printing a blank quiz, ensure that the One question at a time checkbox from the Moderate tab is not selected for the quiz. Only one question will be printed if One question at a time is selected.
  • If drawing from an item bank, selecting Print Blank Quiz will create a version in time of the quiz that draws its required questions from the item bank. Should you require a different version of the quiz, quit the preview and select Print Blank Quiz again. This will pull new questions from the item bank and create a new version.
