How do I duplicate an assessment (i.e. test or quiz)?

You can make multiple copies of assessments in the same course site.  For example, you might want to create a new copy of an existing assessment in order to use it as the basis for a new, modified assessment. 

Go to Tests & Quizzes.

Go to Tests & Quizzes.

Select the Tests & Quizzes tool from the Tool Menu of your site.

From the Action menu, select Duplicate.

From the Tests & Quizzes tool home screen, choose the Duplicate option in the drop-down menu for the assessment you would like to duplicate.  Be sure that you are in the Working Copies tab; otherwise, you won't see your unpublished items.

Note: You cannot duplicate published copies of assessments in Tests & Quizzes.

Confirm duplication.

On the Duplicate Assessment Confirmation screen, click Duplicate.

View duplicated assessment.

Your duplicated assessment will have the title of your original assessment, with a Copy number listed after it.

For example, if you copy an assessment, Quiz #1, for the first time, the copy will be titled Quiz #1 - Copy #1.  If you duplicate the original Quiz #1 again without editing the title of Quiz #1 - Copy #1, the newly duplicated assessment will be titled Quiz #1 - Copy #2.

Edit the duplicated assessment's questions or settings.

You can edit the Settings of the duplicated assessment, such as its title and availability, by following the steps outlined in How do I view and modify the settings of an assessment?

You may also modify the questions in the duplicated assessment by following the steps outlined in How do I create an assessment in Tests & Quizzes?
