Jump to solution

If I share a New Quiz with another faculty, and they edit a question in an Item Bank, does it change in my courses too? Whenever I edit a question in an Item Bank in my course, it says that it will be changed in all assessments that use that Item Bank. I'm hoping this doesn't apply to sharing.

Allison:  The message about "it will be changed in all assessments" is referring to other Quizzes in your Canvas course that may be pulling questions from that Question Bank.  For example, if you had a Chapter 1 Quiz that pulled questions from a question bank named "Chapter 1 Questions," and the Midterm Exam was also using questions from that same bank, then changing a question in the bank could affect both items.

If you share content with another instructor, their changes to will not apply back to the your shared content.
