New Quizzes is Canvas's new assessment engine, which will replace the current "Classic" Quizzes over the next few years.
New Quizzes was built as a separate web tool to integrate into Canvas using the LTI (Learning Tools Interoperability) standard that securely connects applications to Canvas and other learning management systems. Canvas and New Quizzes are separate applications and do not share a common database. This separation allows Canvas developers the opportunity to provide more options and stability when instructors create assessments.

Instructure, Canvas's parent company, has extended the timeline for the new version of Canvas Quizzes to allow FSU and other institutions more time to become familiar with the tool before Classic Quizzes is retired on June 30, 2024. For more information visit FSU's New Quizzes Transition Timeline.
