If I create a question in a quiz, will it automatically be saved into a question bank?
Yes. Questions added by typing them in a quiz get added to a Question Bank called "Unfiled Questions". If you want to provide more structure, you can use the "move/copy question to another bank" option to help organize them.
Here's an example question I just created to confirm this before responding.
I should also note that if you change or update the question in the quiz, it does not update the question in the question bank, nor does it create a new question in the question bank. That is, the copying to the question bank is only done once and updates will need made in both places if you want to use this approach.
