How do I add all items or a random set from an item bank to a quiz in New Quizzes?

Find your school's Canvas URL

To find your school or institution's Canvas URL, begin typing the name of your school/institution. Results will appear after you type at least 3 characters. For best results be as specific as possible. If you can't find your school, try using any part of your school's name or searching for your school district or state. You may also need to search for the school using the acronym or full name, for example "USU" and "Utah State University".

How do I add all items or a random set from an item bank to a quiz in New Quizzes?

You can add multiple items to a quiz from an item bank in New Quizzes. These questions display in random order. Depending on the number of items you include from your item bank, students may view different questions when taking their quiz.

This lesson shows how to add an item from an item bank using the Item Banks button from the Build page. You can also access your item banks when adding content to a quiz.

You can also add individual items from an item bank.

Note: When you add stimulus content to an item bank, questions attached to the stimulus content are not automatically added and must be added to the item bank manually. Likewise, when you add stimulus content to a quiz from an item bank, attached questions are not automatically added.
