New Quizzes: Ability to copy entire item banks

New Quizzes: Ability to copy entire item banks

(26)

Item banks in New Quizzes have a lot of better features for me than the old Question Groups. And I love being able to share those banks with a colleague. But, right now, if that colleague wants to copy them to be able to make their own adjustments to the questions, they have to copy each question individually. This is a tedious process and also opens up multiple opportunities for a slight mis-click and for a question to be basically "taken" instead of "copied". The ability to copy an entire bank all at once would be a huge time saver and security measure against the bank being changed by another staff member.

Great idea. This is a must have.

This feature is a must have! My PLC group needs to have the ability to share an item band in order to collaborate on content building.

Must have feature.  We like to divide the work load and share item banks.  However, I typically want to add comments for incorrect responses that the others don't care about, or alter the list of correct responses for FITB questions, etc.  These are both activities that are done inside the item bank and affects everyone else.

Copying banks is important for sharing your new quizzes between schools too.

This would be so helpful! Please add this feature. 

Without this, the workaround is nightmarish for us ...

This would be great, I'm currently using the same bank in two different quizzes. I want to remove all of the fill in the blank questions but can't because the students have already taken the first quiz. I have the bank set up to display a set amount of questions in each quiz. I though I will just make a copy so I don't accidently do anything that may impact the first quiz. Then learned I cannot do that, a copy option would be really helpful.

Yes.  It is also important to be able to copy to a different format.  Classic quizzes can be exported into a format that can be imported into multiple other formats (and vise versa).

It is definitely very very important to allow instructors to copy quizzes between multiple instances of Canvas if they are an adjunct teaching at multiple institutions!

Yes please!

I built an item bank for Winter semester, I need to have the same questions plus 4 more chapters for Spring semester and I do not want to recreate all of it again so that I can get them in a new bank.

I agree this is a must have, and it has to work across institutions, so instructors who use the same books/materials can share this aspect of teaching materials as well.  I've seen references to this feature being needed by adjuncts who teach at multiple institutions, but it's needed by all teachers who want to work cooperatively with respect to their teaching.

You should add this.  I am authoring questions in one class and would like to use that as the base for a similar set in a related but different class.
