How can I easily move a question from one quiz to another quiz? Keep in mind, I can't even find the question I want to move anywhere in the question banks.
Hello Ron. You mention not being able to find the question you are looking for in any bank. Was the question created initially in a question bank or in a quiz itself. If the question was created in a quiz directly then if you look at the question banks there should be one called "unfiled questions" that includes all questions created in this way.
Provided that you can find your question in one of the banks, you should be able to add it to any quiz you create by using the "find questions" option within the quiz (How do I create a quiz by finding questions in a question bank?). If the questions are in the unfiled question bank, you could create a separate bank that is easier to identify and move the question(s) there (How do I move/copy a question from one question bank to another?)
If you are using Quizzes.Next there are different documents describing these steps.
How do I add an item from an item bank to an assessment in Quizzes.Next?
How do I move or copy a question from one item bank to another in Quizzes.Next?
I hope this helps!
Thanks for the timely response. I don't use the question banks, so my "unfiled" bank file has hundreds of questions in it. By the time I go through it, it is faster to just re-create the question in the new quiz. I was looking for a way to "drag and drop" from one quiz to another, and avoid having to spend time managing the question banks.
I understand how drag and drop from one quiz to another would be helpful in this situation Ron, but am not aware of any way to do this currently. When I began using Canvas myself I didn't use question banks very often. Due to a similar problem finding the question later I have begun creating all of my questions in banks as it gives me a great deal more flexibility in how to create assessments later (create a quiz from different question banks for a final or practice exam, pick questions randomly from the bank, randomize question order, etc.). It took some work upfront to learn how to create and utilize question banks, but the Canvas Guides (https://community.canvaslms.com/docs/DOC-10460-canvas-instructor-guide-table-of-contents#jive_content_id_Quizzes) were helpful in getting started.
Good luck with the class!
