Quick Start Guide for Students

A Canvas site, Passport to Canvas: Quick Start Guide for Students, is accessible via self-enrollment. Students may self-enroll at any time via a link on the left navigation or Help option.

We encourage educators to enroll to familiarize themselves with this timely student resource and to refer students to it, especially if they are new to Canvas.

Canvas Feature Request IconNew Quizzes Feature Request:
Show/Hide Answers by Date

In Classic Quizzes, there was an option to schedule the release of answers to students so that they could be revealed after the exam/quiz closed. Unfortunately, this feature is currently not available in New Quizzes. Please give this suggestion a 5 start rating in the community!

Note: You’ll need to first hit “Log in” in the upper right corner and use your Messiah credentials
