New Quizzes

New Quizzes will eventually replace Classic Quizzes as the default quiz engine. New Quizzes was enabled for all Penn users on October 1, 2021. Instructors and TAs now have the option to select either Classic Quizzes or New Quizzes for their assessments.

Classic Quizzes can be used in Canvas courses until July 2022 when New Quizzes will be the only assessment option.
