About Quick Check

Quick Check is a tool for creating inline assessments in Canvas, allowing instructors to integrate frequent, low-stakes assessments into their courses. By providing students a mix of high- and low- stakes assessments, instructors can familiarize themselves with each student's work, create multiple opportunities for feedback, and deter cheating.

Important:
At Indiana University, the Quick Check tool will be available to all Canvas courses as of November 30, 2017. After that date, instructors can add Quick Check to their courses as an external tool. Instructors involved in the pilot of Quick Check will need to re-add the tool to their courses. See Exposing and using external apps in your course.

Using Quick Check as an external tool assignment, with content placed in the assignment description, enables the integration of content and assessment in a format that is difficult to achieve in Canvas quizzes. Presenting questions as part of the content can be less intimidating to students than more formal assessments, and encourages additional interaction with the content.

Quick Check includes the following question types:

  • Multiple choice
  • Multiple correct
  • Matching
  • Matrix
  • Text match (i.e., fill in the blank)
  • Multiple drop-downs
  • Numerical

Other features include:

  • Automatic grade passback to the Canvas gradebook
  • Results view with data on student attempts and responses
  • Custom feedback for questions and responses
  • The ability to create "sets" of Quick Checks, which function similarly to question banks; sets can be used across courses, do not need to be recreated when a course is copied, and can be shared between multiple instructors
