Can't make an assessment using a test bank?

Follow

My school just got schoology and it not longer lets me a) upload a test or quiz in blackboard--anywhere--not in a test bank folder or in a quiz I am trying to make and b) when making an assessment as part of course materials, it doesn't offer me the option of either importing a test or quiz from a file or from a test bank.  What did you people do!?!  That was THE BEST feature of Schoology. Please say there is a way with this new schoology to do it. And don't send me to the help page, because I already tried them all. Nothing works. There's no option to import in the assessment.

    Hi Brian,

    Thank you for reaching out in the Schoology Community! 

    Item Banks for Course Assessments are on our Product Roadmap.

    I recommend following the Product Roadmap to receive updates on the progress of this feature.

    You can view the different phases here, here and, here.

    Best,

    Nina,

    That's really terrible. Had I known that Schoology removed the only feature that really differentiated it from any other LMS, I would have suggested to my district we not use it and stay with MS Office 365--now there is no real difference between the 2 and teachers are comfortable using MS Teams. 

    It's clear that the functionality still exists in some districts--I watched a video dated August 2, 2020 of someone who had the quiz/ test option and showed how to upload an exam and create a test.  Is there any way my district can get the quiz/ test functions and the test bank back please?  Can you advise me how to ask for it from our IT folks?  Not having it is seriously awful. I can't understand the logic of Schoology here--makes no sense.
