Canvas: Using Our Question Banks for Supplemental Assessments and Cumulative Exams

Please Note: We provide quiz banks as QTI files, a standard format that allows you to import questions, build, and customize quizzes in most learning management systems. According to Lumen company policy, we do not provide quizzes in written (e.g. MS Word) form, in order to preserve the academic integrity of our quiz banks on behalf of everyone using our materials. We adopted this policy after observing how easy it is for quiz banks in written formats to find their way onto websites that promote academic cheating. We apologize for any inconvenience.

First, Import the Question Banks: To get started, follow these instructions for importing the question banks into Canvas.

Once the import is complete, navigate to course Quizzes. An individual quiz for each module will be available here as our quiz imports match the alignment of our course modules.
