Printing a Quiz from Brightspace

While not perfect, there is a way to print a quiz directly from Brightspace without using a third party tool, such as Respondus 4 back in the Blackboard days. For example, there are cases where you might wish to provide a student a paper copy of a quiz. If the printed result not optimal, stay tuned for next month’s blog on copying and pasting into to Word so you can editing or even save as PDF.

  • Using Firefox browser is recommended.
  • Make sure you set the quiz to show all the questions on the same page. Otherwise, only the questions displayed on the page you set up to print will print.
  • This method will not work if you set up your quiz as a random section because it will only display one set of randomly selected questions.
