How do I import quizzes from QTI packages?

You can easily import quizzes from programs that create QTI files. If a program does not create QTI files, it cannot be imported into Canvas.

QTI files can be created from a variety of different learning management systems and software:

  • Quizzes created in Respondus 4.0 (Windows software) can be exported as QTI packages. To learn how to use Respondus 4.0 refer to this user guide (DOC). A QuickStart guide for Respondus 4.0 is also available (PDF).
  • Quizzes created in Blackboard (WebCT, Angel) can be exported as QTI packages.
  • Quizzes created in Moodle can be exported as QTI packages. Note: This will work with Moodle 2.0 or older versions. However, Moodle 2.1 and newer versions no longer export QTI packages.

Note: Canvas supports QTI versions 1.2 and 2.1.
