How to Import a Mid-Semester Survey in Canvas

  1. If you haven’t done so already, download the survey export package to your computer. It is a zipped file. Do not unzip it, or you will not be able to load it to Canvas.
  2. In your course:
    1. Go to Settings
    2. In right hand menu, select Import Course Content
    3. In the Content Type drop-down menu, select Canvas Course Export Package
    4. Search for and choose the downloaded survey export package from your computer.
    5. Choose All Content in the Content options area. Since the export package only contains one item, it will only add one item to your course.
    6. Click Import.
    7. Once the upload has completed, you’ll see the newly imported survey on your Quizzes page. You can edit the survey, change the questions, add due dates, etc.
