Edit Group in New Quiz w/o Changing Old Quiz

Jump to solution

I have created tests using groups, and I must say I just love the ability to randomize questions and answers; most helpful with testing security. I am going to use these groups in my final exam. My final will be each of the five unit groups, with Canvas pulling 20 questions from each group. In the original groups, Canvas pulled 50 questions. I would like to be able to simply add the groups I've already created to a new quiz and edit the group settings for each group for the 20 question pull rather than 50. Primary question: Can I do this without causing the original quizzes to be affected?

ADDENDUM. I am continuing to work on my quiz and now have another/related question: Can I use previously created groups in new quizzes at all and, if so, how to I get to the group to add it to a new quiz?

Thank you for any and all help! 🙂 ~Rhonda

I believe the way to do this is using Question Banks. In this case, you'd want a question bank made for each quiz. On the final exam, you can then create a question group and point it at one of the banks. You could also use this method to build the individual quizzes themselves. This way, if you delete/add/edit questions, it gets updated in the individual quizzes and the final exam. Here are some resources on this:
