Do you prefer question groups or question banks?

So at CanvasCon in Florida yesterday, the question about groups vs. banks came up.  Here are my thoughts on them:

Right now, I prefer groups over banks for 2 reasons. 1, you can edit a question in a live quiz with groups and regrade automatically.  You have to go through speed grader to fix bad questions from banks, and in larger classes, this can be a hassle!  2. Aligning outcomes with banks isn't fully functional yet.  Hopefully one day it will be, and soon, but with out this functioning properly, banks seem to be of no use to me!

So what are YOUR preferences and why?  Thanks!

Community Coach​, I have to agree with you on the groups vs. banks. We prefer them for pretty much the same reasons, ability to actually see the questions students are getting & ability to regrade. We don't use outcomes that much so that doesn't effect us, but I can see where it would be better to use groups.
