How do I move/copy a question from one question bank to another?

You can easily move or copy individual questions from one question bank to another. Moving questions removes the question from the original question bank. Copying questions leaves a copy in the original question bank and adds a copy to the selected question bank.

You can also move multiple questions from one question bank to another. Copying questions is not available for multiple questions.

Note: You can only copy or move questions between question banks in the same course. However, you can import a question bank from one course to another.
