New Question Group

Jump to solution

I like to use Question Banks for all my courses. When I go to make a new quiz and click on New Question Group to pull questions from a bank, I can see ALL my Question Banks across ALL of my courses. Is there any way to only view the Banks that for that specific course? I have already had problems when I accidentally link a bank from another course and my students can not see the question.

Yes, Canvas can do this.

What you're seeing are bookmarked question banks. Bookmarked banks are available in all courses. If you remove the bookmarks, then it only shows you the ones for the course you're in.

The issue is that you didn't bookmark them, it was done automatically as part of the internal workings of Canvas when you copy or import material. That's how you end up seeing the banks from all of your courses.

Here are two lessons in the Canvas Instructor Guide that explain the process.

Hi Charles Morrison,

I'm going to second what James Jones has advised regarding bookmarked question banks. Almost two years ago, I and others were experiencing angst at the scrolling list of question banks. I eventually took control and unbookmarked many of my question banks. In fact, whenever I start new banks, I unbookmark them before I even begin populating them.

To find your bookmarked question banks, goto any course page with question banks(Manage Question Banks) and click on the View Bookmarked Banks button. Unbookmark as many (or all!) of them that you desire.

My current list is delightfully empty except for 4 questions that I want to keep track of for use later. Smiley Happy

No more question bank blues,
