Making questions available to both the old and new quiz tools

I have created questions in the Item Bank used for the new quiz tool and want to access them from the old quiz tool. The item banks are not appearing in the old quiz tool. What do I need to do to make these questions available in both versions of the quiz tool?

Hello Welcome to the Canvas Community.  Thank you for posting your question.  While I know it is possible to migrate quizzes in the current quizzing engine to the new Quizzes.Next engine (How do I migrate a Canvas quiz to Quizzes.Next?), I am not sure if the opposite is true.  I will share your question with the here in the Canvas Community in hopes that your question will get some additional exposure.  If you're not yet following this group, please use the group link I've provided, and then click on the "Follow" button located at the top right corner of that page.  Also, next to that button is a link for "Actions".  Select that, and then choose "Join group".  I hope this will be of help to you, Edward.

Thanks Chris.

It is possible to migrate a quiz from the Quizzes.Next tool to the old Quiz tool. I don’t know the details because a member of our computer tech services did it for me. I am pretty sure one can access questions in the Quizzes.Next Item Bank from the old Quiz tool but at the moment I am unable to figure out the steps that I need to do.

It seems that the answer to my question is that it is currently possible to migrate questions in only one direction.
