To initiate the integration, you need to be added to a roster by the IT Administrator for your district. Once this is done, you will receive an email notifying you about the same. Ensure to contact your organization’s IT Administrator in case you have not received the notification email. 

If your IT Administrator has added you to a roster but you haven't yet received an email, try logging out of your Quizizz account and logging back in after a few minutes. 

Once you have been onboarded, follow these steps:

  4. Click on 'Authorize' to allow Quizizz to sync with Canvas. This is a one-time requirement 
  5. Click on the Canvas button, select the classes you would like to import and click on 'Next'
