  • (2021-12-07) Edward Troy: Great, but not compatible with question banks.
  • (2021-04-28) Shannon Knowles: 10/2019 Review...This extension is a MUST for Canvas users. Print quizzes with LOTS LESS paper. 4/2021 Review...Extension does not seem to be functioning properly now. Oh how I used to love this extension for my kids that did not have computer access, but now the app just sits on a screen that say "Wait while I load your quiz" I wait, and I wait, and I wait and nothing happens. Developer...Please, please fix this problem.
  • (2021-04-23) Jaye Peavey: I loved this extension and it was a complete lifesaver, but it no longer works... nothing will load on it anymore. I just found out as I tried to print a quiz out for a student that does not have a computer... I guess I depended on this too much and now it is going to take me so long to create these in word so that I can have them available.
  • (2021-02-24) Cole L: Doesn't work. I'm on the quiz page and click the add on and it just tells me "To create a printable verstion of a quiz, open the quiz and then click on the icon."
  • (2020-12-10) Nick James: This is the best thing I have found since going virtual this year and having to build everything into Canvas.
  • (2020-10-16) Kari Hall: So far this is working. Thank you for solving Canvas's continued deficiencies that we are forced to use in CA. I have read that it wasn't working with the test banks which I do use in some courses so I will try that later. But for regular quizzes built it works great.
  • (2020-09-10) Bridget Lucero: This is awesome! I can't believe Canvas doesn't have a print option and this solves that. I did not give the full 5 stars because I would really like if there were a way to include a key. As a Nursing program, our accreditation requires that we have the exam and key for every exam we give. So unless we want to hand fill out 100, 50+ question exams each semester, it's an unusable add-on for us. :(
  • (2020-07-11) Polly Black: Fabulous! Thanks! But it only prints from Old Quizzes in Canvas. Need an update (pretty please!) that can print New Quizzes also :)
  • (2020-03-16) Peter Jackel: Loved it
  • (2020-02-13) Catherine Carney: I really wanted to give this extension a 5-star rating but it doesn't work with question bank quizzes/tests. Otherwise, I love how it easy it is to use and has made my life so much better.
  • (2020-02-13) Andy G: So quick and easy to use- especially if you have students who need a hard copy or need it read to them.
  • (2020-02-04) Jodi Nelson: It was less than 1 minute for me to ask the question in my teaching platform, click on their link to this app in Chrome, download it and open the test for printing. No lie!!! Love it!
  • (2019-12-13) Deena Wassenberg: So helpful! We had some trouble at first, but the developer helped our tech folks sort it all out (had something to do with our U's canvas address). Works wonderfully!
  • (2019-12-12) Kevin Dougherty: Looks cool. I haven't used it much, but I'm glad this is being explored.
  • (2019-12-02) Monica Ann: This is not only a lifesaver, but the biggest time saver....Thank you so much!
  • (2019-11-20) Taylor Kahny: This is a lifesaver.
  • (2019-11-12) Sara O'Connor: So so helpful! I would love to be able to select multiple quizzes and print all of them. I do a daily 1 question quiz and would like to give those to students before a big test.
  • (2019-11-01) Glenn Wiedenhoeft: This extension is great for printing out more simply-constructed exams and question types! MP, essay, matching, T/F, fill in the blank all show and print fine - far superior to printing web page from "Preview". However, it seems the more an instructor employs the less usual question types, the less likely it is to work. Examples: 1. Canvas quiz made of question groups that are linked to various question banks. The otherwise wonderful extension cannot print such quizzes at all. 2. Question groups NOT linked to QBs, rather, created inside the quiz via drag-n-drop: the extension prints *all* of the questions from the group, rather than, say "pick 2 out of 4". A work-around is to duplicate the exam (via export->import) and adjust the duplicate to be entirely static (i.e., NOT choosing randomly Y number of questions out of larger group of Z). 3. Multiple drop-down does not work, because the choices are not revealed.
  • (2019-10-30) Lisa Wood: I was getting so frustrated that I had to recreat a paper version of each quiz but now that I use the app I can quickly convert and viola i have a printable version of my quizzes! In canvas there is no way to print matching and this is where this comes in perfectly, I am so grateful for this app!
  • (2019-10-29) Christina Ditzel: Was awesome! I would recommend this to everyone I know and I can't believe this isn't standard with Canvas. Thank you so much. Update ...I just tried to print again and although it looks great on the screen, when it prints it's all garbled characters. I don't want to create a github account to leave the fix-it feedback ;(. Sorry. I'm happy to email to give more info. (Also, this is not the Canvas account I was trying to print from, that account won't let me post a review.)
  • (2019-10-24) Tyler Price: Thank you for providing this, it saved us a ton of time. If anyone has issues, I urge you to reach out to the developer. He has done a great job here and is very responsive to any issues you may have. Can't complain when it's free!
  • (2019-10-24) M.S. Agronomy: Great too, even better price! Thank you for the hard work and quick turn around on questions/requests.
  • (2019-10-01) Lucas Moreira: Great Extension. Works really well
  • (2019-09-30) Gunther Schurr: Here's the thing fellow quiz-pundits: it works (for me) if you press "Preview" on the quiz (as the instructor), then click on the extension.
  • (2019-09-29) Linda Powell: Very hopeful however it does not work :(
  • (2019-09-24) Joseph Hansen: Effective. Smooth. Couldn't live without it.
  • (2019-09-24) Joseph Hansen: thanks peter, very cool!
  • (2019-09-22) Deanna Pucciarelli: does not work
