Copying questions from one quiz to another without copying a course

I made a "quiz" in canvas to use a unit test. I would like to now copy the questions straight into another quiz to make check-in quizzes to use as CFAs of students' progress during the unit. I would also like to be able to move questions that are already created into question groups on an assessment, but it does not allow that. Why is this?? Is there not a way to do this if you initially start by creating the questions within the quiz first instead of creating them in a question bank? Does anyone else find Canvas's quiz creating features EXTREMELY lacking?

There is a workaround for this issue. Go to the quiz in question and copy it onto the same course. Because it is a quiz that contains questions, Canvas will list it under the question bank "unfiled." You need to go to the new quiz and select "Find Questions." You will see Unfiled questions at the bottom of the list on the left-side panel. Simply add the questions to the new quiz.
