Create a Checklist in Canvas
Did you know you can create a checklist in Canvas using the Quizzes tool?
Checklists work great for:
A course Getting Started list
Steps to complete an assignment
Student acknowledgment of completed items in a module
A list of items to view and turn in each week
Create a quiz selecting the “Classic” quiz option
For each question include a “To do” item
In the answer for each question create two responses (such as done/not done, complete/incomplete)
For the quiz settings:
Include instructions so students understand how to take the quiz and that they can come and go in the quiz until they complete all items and are ready to submit them (see the example quizzes below for wording)
Do not include a time limit
Select “Allow Multiple Attempts” and choose to keep the “Highest” quiz score
