How do I import a MiQuizMaker quiz into Canvas?

Please note: At this time, MiQuizMaker .QTI files are only compatible with Canvas Classic Quizzes.

You can export a quiz from MiQuizMaker as a file from the My Quizzes page or the Quiz Overview page.

1. From either page, select Export QTI button next to the quiz you would like to export. The downlad will begin immediately.

8. The import will appear under "Current Jobs". It may take 1 - 2 minutes for the quiz upload to complete.

9. Once the quiz has uploaded, you can preview the quiz by selecting "Quizzes" from the course navigation menu. The quiz will appear on the quizzes page with the MiQuizMaker quiz name you chose, not the file name.

10. Click "Preview". This will look similar to the build/view toggle in MiQuizMaker.
