Creating an assignment

  1. In the Canvas course, create a new assignment 
  2. Enter the total points for the quiz in the points field, directly below the Rich Content Editor. Kaltura treats each gradable question (multiple choice and true/false questions) as equal in value and will divide the total point value for the quiz by the number of gradable questions. It is not possible for one gradable question to be worth more points than another. For example, the Points field is set to 40, which means that including four gradable questions in the video quiz will make each of them worth 10 points. Having 2 questions will make them each worth 20 points, etc.
  3. Select External Tool in the submission type drop down
  4. Click on Find button under Enter or find an External Tool URL
  5. Scroll down, locate, and click on Kaltura Video Quiz
  6. Find the video quiz and click Embed or Select (depending on your browser)
  7. You may have to click the select button again to complete the set-up
  8. Save the assignment so the video quiz assignment populates to the Canvas Gradebook
  9. Publish the assignment
