Canvas Quiz Requirements for Students

Modified on Thu, May 9 at 11:01 AM


Quizzes should only be taken on a desktop or laptop. Mobile devices should not be used for quizzes, as these devices do not support the full Canvas quiz experience.

Please make sure you are using a Canvas-supported web browser before you get started.

Please note: We only recommend Chrome or Firefox (the link above also lists Safari and Microsoft Edge) 

Please review the in-depth Canvas guide on how to take a Canvas quiz.

While Taking a Quiz 

Do not click the back button on your browser, close your browser, or click the Submit Quiz button before you have completed answering the quiz questions. Doing any of these things could cause an accidental quiz submission.

Error While Taking a Quiz

If you encounter an issue while taking a Canvas quiz, please write to your instructor and let them know you are speaking with online support. Please write to, CC your instructor, and include any screenshots of the error. We will be happy to assist with the issue.
