New Quiz Question Not Showing up in Question Bank

In creating a quiz, I opted to discard a question and add a different question type in its place. Then I wanted to replicate the new question. The original question was in the question bank generated for the quiz, but the new question never showed up. I eventually had to export and then import the quiz to generate a new question bank with the question I wanted to replicate.


The original question type was Multiple Answers; the new question type was Multiple Dropdowns. Since I had 20 possible answers for one of the answer choices, I did not want to create the question again.


Based on this experience I have two questions:

  1. Why did the new question I created not show up in the question bank?
  2. Why does Canvas not allow for copying a question in the quiz editor as they do in the question bank?
