I have a couple of issues with Quizzes.Next.
A) Say, I have question banks and I made a Quiz taking questions from that question Banks. Then I migrated the Quiz to Quizzes.Next.
B) A quiz is built by randomly taking questions from Question Groups. Then it is migrated to Quizzes.Next.
Hi @mmorshed2 and welcome to the Canvas Community.
Question banks in the classic quiz engine cannot be directly migrated to Quizzes.Next (see Question Bank Migration). In a post a few months ago, Transfer from old Question Banks to new ITEM banks?!?, I did discuss how you can accomplish migrating banks, but it involves adding banked questions to a quiz, exporting this, and then importing the questions from that quiz into a new question bank in Quizzes.Next. You might try this method and see if it works for you.
I believe the second issue you mentioned relates to the migration of banks as well. You can build a quiz in Quizzes.Next by randomly selecting "x" questions from question banks as question groups, but first the question banks must exist in Quizzes.Next. This document explains how to add questions from a bank to Quizzes.Next assessments, https://community.canvaslms.com/docs/DOC-15051-4152780616
Does this information help?
Thanks for jumping in & making helpful comments. That really helps!!
I have uploaded what I managed to sum up from every one's responses.
Problem 1: Having hundreds of questions in multiple banks, it seems like instructors will not have enough time to do that every time.
Problem 2: If bank does not migrate with quizzes, I believe that it will be difficult for instructors to find out every time how many questions from which bank.
In my understanding, it will be messy for instructors to use Quizzes.Next if Item Banks are not migrated with the Quiz migration. Because they utilize question banks a lot in preparing quizzes.
Do anybody know if Canvas is going to fix this??
I'm having the same exact issue. What an abysmal job creating a dead end that completely undermines the migration to quizzes.next. Ridiculous "work-around." As we expected, Canvas sure sold themselves well, and the product continues to add bells and whistles while not taking care of the core uses instructors have--like importing banks from old to new formats.
ericwerth's suggestions are very helpful and they do work. However, Canvas really needs to address this issue so that there's an easier way of doing it in bulk. In terms of cost-benefit ratio, Quizzes.Next has done a little bit to create better assessments and a lot to create extra work.
