You may remove questions from a pool, copy them into another pool, or move them to another pool. Perhaps you create a Question Pool called "ABC1234 Textbook" in which you gather 200 questions.  You decide you would like to organize these questions by chapter and difficulty level.  You make subpools called "Chapter 1," "Chapter 2," etc.  You may ''copy'' the questions into the appropriate subpools, which will mean that the questions are now in both the ABC1234 pool and the subpool.  You may '''move''' the questions into the subpools, which means that the questions are removed from ABC1234 and are now only in the subpool.

Tests & Quizzes Overview

The Tests & Quizzes tool provides for online assessment of student knowledge. This assessment can be in the form of for-credit quizzes and exams, or self-assessment study aids. You may also use this tool to create anonymous surveys of student information.

Create and Manage Question Pools in Tests & Quizzes

As you use the Tests & Quizzes tool, you will be creating questions that can be used over and over in other exams in the future. You will want to organize your questions into Question Pools so that you can easily locate the questions you want to use in the future.

Once you have Question Pools, you can create an assessment that will randomly draw from one or more pools. For example, you might create two pools called "Chapter 1 Easy" and "Chapter 1 Difficult" that each contain 25 questions. You can set up an assessment that randomly pulls 5 questions from each of those pools so that all your students get 10 questions - five easy and five difficult - but they could each have an entirely different assessment.

NOTE:Question Pools are associated with your username, not the course in which they are created. So if you create a Question Pool in course ABC1234, and you also teach CBA4321, you will see your Question Pools in both locations and they are available to use in both locations. Because of this, you will want to name your Question Pools in a way that clearly identifies the questions.

Subpools offer another level of organization. If you create a pool called "ABC1234 Textbook," you might create subpools called "Chapter 1," "Chapter 2," etc. In those subpools, you could create more subpools called "Easy," and "Difficult."

Remove, Copy and Move Questions Within Question Pools in Tests & Quizzes

You may remove questions from a pool, copy them into another pool, or move them to another pool. Perhaps you create a Question Pool called "ABC1234 Textbook" in which you gather 200 questions. You decide you would like to organize these questions by chapter and difficulty level. You make subpools called "Chapter 1," "Chapter 2," etc. You may copy the questions into the appropriate subpools, which will mean that the questions are now in both the ABC1234 pool and the subpool. You may move the questions into the subpools, which means that the questions are removed from ABC1234 and are now only in the subpool. If you remove the questions, they are permanently deleted from that pool.
