Canvas is developing a new quiz creation tool, New Quizzes, which will eventually replace the old Quizzes tool. New Quizzes is not currently available in for-credit Canvas courses, but users can start experimenting with the tool in a Canvas Studio site. Learn more about the New Quizzes tool or review some frequently asked questions about the New Quizzes tool.
Gradescope is a suite of tools designed to make grading of hand-written student work and computer coding assignments more consistent, fair, and efficient.
