The Classic Quiz tool is directly integrated into the Canvas LMS. We very strongly suggest creating your quizzes in the Classic tool due to its higher reliability, ease of transferring content, compatibility with proctoring software, and its ability to be copied into the New Tool if you ever feel the need to do so.
The Classic Quiz editor is split into two tabs: the Edit tab where you choose your typical Canvas settings such as due dates and the assignment group, and the Questions tab where you create and arrange your questions.
Here are some unique features of the Classic Quizzes:
The New Quizzes editor is more intuitive in terms of design, but can occasionally be less responsive as a result. Keep in mind that New Quizzes do not formally support proctoring tools since Instructure has not released the developer API yet. Additionally, New Quizzes cannot be directly exported between instances of Canvas (such as from a UW-Parkside course to a UW-Extension course).
There are two parts to New Quizzes: Edit and Build. The Edit page is where you'll set typical assignment settings such as due dates and assignment category. The Build page is where you'll add your questions and set quiz-specific settings such as number of attempts, a required password, or time limits.
