Institutional Item Banks - Organization

We are starting to work with Institutional Item Banks in New Quizzes. Right now, I have one curriculum department as our guinea pigs, and I foresee this space becoming cumbersome for staff to navigate in the future. I would love to see some additional organizational structure in place under the Intuitional category. I imagine both K12 (myself) and higher ed would want to organize item banks by subject area/department and for K12 by grade level or at least by instructional level (elementary, middle high). We are currently using some naming conventions to identify these banks, but as use expands across departments and grade levels, teachers will have difficulty finding banks. In lieu of a directory structure, being able to add tags to banks and then having selectable filters (similar to what we have in Commons) would be another design structure that would improve user workflow.

Agreed. We're looking at needing to use these feature as more instructors are starting to use new quizzes. Having folders or a search feature under the Institutional level for departments and ideally courses would be very helpful.
