[+] Is there a way to view/print answer keys to BrainPOP quizzes?

No, not at the moment. There are a number of reasons why we don't offer answer keys to our quizzes. One is that we are currently in the process of upgrading all of our quizzes so that each contains questions with four answer options; more higher-order thinking questions; and in some cases, images. We do understand that quiz answer keys would save many teachers time and effort, however, and it is possible that we may offer answer keys sometime in the future.
