What is the easiest way to migrate question banks to item banks?

Where is the group of questions stored in the New Quizzes when you migrate it?
I know, that probably isn't going to work, but I am just trying to find an easier way to create tests that are linked to item banks in New Quizzes. So I am testing out different ways of migrating and creating tests and item banks in New Quizzes. While testing, I found that if I put the questions in a group in the legacy quiz, then migrate that quiz to New Quizzes, it actually appears to have the group of questions within the test, yet as a question bank. But... there is not question bank, that I can find, associated with that migrated quiz. So where is that question bank stored? And please confirm for me that there is no way that this method will work. I am having a hard time giving up on it:) But that means that I will have to create a test out of the testbank for each bank that currently exists in one of the 300 courses we will be migrating, export each test individually, create an item bank in new quizzes, and upload the QTI file. That is a lot of work!

If anyone has an answer to the central question here:

(my emphasis) then please share it here.

Arthur,

I asked that same question a month ago, and haven't gotten any answers. Without knowing who "owns" that test bank, or how it can be updated, we can not use that method to import tests. It would be much easier if we could. We started the process of migrating tests for all of our online courses this summer with the courses that are being updated. For any test that uses a group we must create a test bank in the new quizzes. To do this we must create a legacy or classic test with the questions from the bank, export that test (by itself) so that we have a qti to upload into the item bank in new quizzes, so that we can then recreate the test. Yes, way more work than it should be. But we can't wait for the migration tools will be available in December, we have thousands of tests to prepare for next Summer and Fall.

Hey, Tracey,

Check out the new migration section in the FAQ: New Quizzes; see if it helps answer some of your questions?

Thanks!
