Classic Question Banks to New Quiz Item Banks

Jump to solution

Hello! I'm an instructional coach working with my AP Gov team. They currently have 1000+ questions over various classic quiz banks.

I have already successfully moved specific banks over to the New Quiz Item Banks, but it is super tedious. The process I went through is as follows:

  • Created Classic Quiz and added every question from a bank
  • Migrated that quiz to New Quiz
  • Manually chose each question in the New Quiz to add to an Item Bank

I'm glad that I can do this, however, I'm hoping there is a way to save time.

Is there a way to migrate an entire question bank to an item bank? Can it be done through a .zip file, or do I have to go through the steps listed above for every single bank?

Some help on this would be great! Hopefully there is a more efficient way, or we are going to have to carve out some serious time to transfer all of these questions.

Hi @DannyMalooly , yes you can. Export the classic quiz after you added the questions from the test bank. Click on Item Banks in the course menu. Create a new item bank and import the quiz export as a QTI file. Here is a link to the Canvas guide: https://community.canvaslms.com/t5/Instructor-Guide/How-do-I-import-questions-from-a-QTI-package-int...

@DannyMalooly Unless someone is "forcing" you to move everything to New Quizzes, you may want to hold off moving the banks.  The way you are doing it is currently the advised way to do it but as part of the transition to New Quizzes, one of the milestones for phase 1 is an easier migration of banks:

Just thought I would pass that along!
