Printing a quiz

These instructions explain how to print out a quiz from D2L Brightspace so that you have a hard-copy of your assessment. You may find this useful if you want to review questions on paper. These instructions may also be helpful if you need to provide a student a paper copy of an assessment.

  • Who is this for: Instructors
  • What is required: A D2L Brightspace course and a quiz


  • 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. You must use Respondus to download all the questions from a random sections quiz. Contact the Faculty Help Desk for more details on Respondus.
