How do I add, copy, move, or remove a question pool?

Creation of a question pool consists of assigning a name and composing the questions, analogous to composing the questions of an exam. Question pools can serve as test banks for assessment questions, including random draw questions. For an overview, see What is a Question Pool?

Note: Because a question pool cannot be given to students as is, no exam settings are available.

Copy or move a question pool.

Copy or move a question pool.

Decide on the destination for the question pool. You can either choose question pool TOP as the destination, which will move the pool to the top level or create a copy of the pool at the top level, or you can choose an existing question pool, which create a subpool of it. In this example, we will copy the pool Mid-Term C into a subpool of Makeup Midterm.

Click Copy (or Move). Unless you chose question pool TOP in the previous step, the original pool will become a subpool of the chosen destination pool.

Note: To move a pool from question pool TOP to question pool TOP would have no effect, and is not allowed.
