How do I create a quiz item bank from existing quizzes?

Jump to solution

I have created quizzes in some of my previous courses, and I would like to put those quiz questions into an item bank that I can draw from to create quizzes in future courses. From what I've found in the Canvas Guides, it looks as if I have to create an item bank in a particular course. I don't want to do anything in my upcoming courses that I can't undo, but I also don't really want to mess up a course that has ended.

Question banks need to belong to a course. What you can do is create the question bank in a sandbox course so that you don't pollute a real course.

Strangely, this is the third time in the last 24 hours I've directed people to an explanation of how to convert a quiz into a bank that I wrote a couple of weeks ago. It isn't one of the more straightforward tasks to do in Canvas.
