How do you copy questions from one quiz to another

Hi  @lcarson !  I do this by making question banks as my first step in quiz creation.  I have included this user guide for you.  https://community.canvaslms.com/docs/DOC-13000-415250747 .  I have found this helpful because anytime I want to reuse those quiz questions, I just pull them from the bank.  This allows me to include all questions or just some of the questions in the bank.  It also allows me to "mix" questions from other quiz banks so that if I want to give an end of the unit quiz and pull randomly from different banks, I can do so.  I hope this helps you!

Thank you. I started organizing the question banks earlier this morning and saw where many of the questions I had created in new quizes were not associated in a specific question bank. They are now all organized and easy to find.

Thank you for your help.

Awesome!  I am glad that my response helped you.  I noticed you were using quizzes.next (new quizzes).  Here is the document for using those item banks https://community.canvaslms.com/docs/DOC-15045-4152780613 .  Sounds like you have it figured out, but it might be helpful to others watching this thread.

This doesn't seem to answer the question, though. The question was how to move questions from one quiz to another--which is also my question--and the answer seems to be that I shouldn't need to do that, because I should have set things up differently in the first place? It's a bit confusing, because if I had these questions in a question bank, I wouldn't be asking this question. Is there any way to do the thing the question here actually asks about?
