Moving Moodle Quiz Questions to Canvas

When moving Moodle questions and question banks to the Canvas LMS the images that are part of the question are often not included during the transfer.  This has happened with .csv files and importing the Moodle .ims file into Canvas. Using the Respondus 4.0 Campus-wide application, also known as Respondus Quiz Builder (RQB), questions with images can be extracted from the Moodle LMS and saved as an RSP file. Instructors can review the questions and images that are extracted into RQB. The RSP file from the RQB can then be published into the Canvas LMS with text and images intact.

SPECIAL NOTE: RESPONDUS QUIZ BUILDER ONLY WORKS ON PC. IT IS NOT MAC COMPATIBLE!

The three steps that must be completed in order are:

  1. Request access to and install the Respondus Quiz Builder.
  2. Extract Moodle quiz questions into the Respondus Quiz Builder.
  3. Publish the extracted questions to your Canvas course(s).

You can extract full Moodle quizzes or question banks.

When publishing to Canvas you create a new quiz or a new question bank.

Respondus can Batch Publish the selected quiz/question bank to multiple courses. If the assessment already exists you can choose to keep both old and new items, and append a numeral to the new item.
