What is New Quizzes?

New Quizzes is the assessment engine LTI (Learning Tools Interoperability) solution from Canvas that is replacing Classic Quizzes (the existing quiz engine in Canvas). UAB is transitioning to New Quizzes, with Classic Quizzes being disabled at the end of the Summer 2024 semester. Beginning Fall 2024, New Quizzes will be the only quiz engine available in Canvas at UAB. New Quizzes has several useful features such as new question types, accommodations settings, additional settings, and reports.
