New Quiz Editing and Creation Experience Overview
Consistent layout: The redesigned create and edit (settings) page in Quizzing has the same layout as Assignments, making it familiar and easy to learn.
Figure 1: New Quiz Creation Screen
The primary panel on the left contains common, frequently used fields that are always displayed. These fields are most relevant to learners and are core to quiz creation.
Figure 2: Primary Panel of New Quiz Creation
The right-hand panel organizes additional, more advanced options such as start and end dates, release conditions, and special access. These options follow the same logical groupings as found in Assignments.

While the right-hand groupings are collapsed, the summary text provides details about which settings are active so you can see which settings are applied at a glance which is perfect for when you are looking to reuse and copy existing quizzes.

Build your quiz in one place
The add/edit question workflow has been brought into the primary panel giving users the ability to easily modify quiz questions without navigating to a separate interface. Users will still be able to perform the same bulk management of quiz questions from this screen such as Move To and More Actions workflows. The quiz preview functionality is also more prominent so you can be confident in what learners will see.

Auto-publish and sync to the grade book
Newly created quizzes by default will auto-publish attempt results to learners and the grade book (If the quiz is connected to the grade book). We’ve updated the terminology around these two settings to better describe what is happening, and set them to on by default, creating a more streamlined connection with the grade book.

Simpler submission views
Users can now confidently prepare what the learner sees once a quiz is submitted with a redesigned Submission Views workflow now called Quiz Results Display. Simply choose from a list of common configurations or customize the display to meet your exact needs.

Updated page break workflow
Users can now easily and intuitively apply question-paging rules to their quizzes. Common paging configurations like displaying all questions together or one question per page are quick and easy to set. Further paging configurations are available by choosing to add page breaks after each section of your quiz creating a more customized experience. Quizzes created using the classic experience will see an additional option to use legacy paging which retains any previous page break settings.

More Features Coming Soon
As part of the new quiz creation experience not all workflows and functionality will be available with this first release, rather, they will come later as part of the continuous release process. We heard your feedback and plan to keep this list as small as possible understanding that communicating and handling these sorts of updates can be time-consuming. The add-to calendar function listed below will return to the new quiz creation experience before the classic workflow fully retires but no immediate timeline is available.
Display in calendar
The display in calendar functionality for availability dates will be temporarily absent from the new quiz creation experience. When creating new quizzes, only due dates will be shown in the calendar. Availability (Start/End) Dates will not appear in the calendar by default but if desired, can be added to the calendar by using the Manage Dates tool.
