How do I move or copy a question from one item bank to another in New Quizzes?

You can move a question from one item bank to another in New Quizzes. You can move questions to item banks that you have created or item banks that have been shared with you. Moving or copying a question to an item bank shared with you adds the question to the original item bank, so anyone shared on that bank will see the question.

When a question is moved to another item bank, the question will retain its tags. When a question is copied to another bank, the tags from the original question are not copied to the new question.
