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

You can make multiple copies of an assessment in the same site.

Tip: Duplicate an assessment to release a copy to specific site participants, for example students who need extra time on a timed assessment.  For more information, see How do I give specific students an assessment with different settings (e.g., extra time)?

Go to Tests & Quizzes.

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

Select Duplicate.

In the Working Copies tab of Tests & Quizzes, select Duplicate from the Action drop-down menu for the assessment.

Note: You cannot duplicate assessments in the Published Copies tab.

Confirm duplication.

On the Duplicate Assessment Confirmation screen, select 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 settings.

Edit the Settings of the duplicated assessment, such as its title and availability, by following the steps outlined in How do I inspect and adjust the settings of an assessment?

Note: If you have duplicated an assessment to allow some students extra time, and those students will see both the original and the extra time copy of the assessment listed in Tests & Quizzes, it is recommended that you change the duplicated assessment's title so the students can easily identify which copy they should submit.  For example, if the original assessment is titled Quiz 1, you might name the duplicated assessment Quiz 1 Extra Time.
