Canvas Release Highlights for February 2024

This month’s highlighted features are found in Canvas Studio and the New Quizzes tool.

The Canvas Studio Release on Tuesday, February 6, 2024 introduced a new browser-based screen capture option. It is currently in beta and is only available in Google Chrome & MS Edge web browsers. The long-standing helper application-based screen capture option is still available. Select Screencast-o-Matic to launch the helper application, which has some features not available in the new Studio Capture option.

  • When a practice quiz is migrated from Classic Quizzes, the New Quiz zero-point settings are enabled by default.
  • The New Quizzes Item Analysis Report answer frequency charts display numbers of correct, incorrect, and no responses for true/false, multiple choice, and multiple answer question types.
  • New Quizzes Item Analysis information can be exported as CSV spreadsheets. Note: student analysis spreadsheets showing each answer from each student are currently unavailable in New Quizzes; continue using Classic Quizzes if you need student analysis spreadsheets.
